Support » Fixing WordPress » setting up Email to blog from

  • Resolved jacquiec


    Hello Everyone,

    I am very very new to website and blogging. Someone else set up our word press site and set me up as an admin to manage, load and create blogging for our company.

    So I am going through reading on how to use this but my boss asked if he can blog via email. I am trying to get that set up for him and I have already done the following and not sure where things are.

    I went to support and typed in how to blog via email
    Receive Post to your blog using email (Printed and followed directions)
    Step one create an email by logging into wordpress with Admin and go to settings. Logged in and made sure it said /wp-admin
    I could not find setting under the blog section
    unless it is under general settings at the bottom of the page. In that case it told me I do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.
    I would really like to learn how to use word press and at this point being such a noob I feel lost.

    Would someone direct me on how to maneuver around.
    Perhaps jumping a head to quickly and should start with lessons just time is an essence.

    I never tried it myself, but I’ve heard people talk about posterous –

    Could this be a good tool for you?

    Thank you Christine,

    It has become apparent to me that I actually do not have admin rights since I am not seeing the buttons needed to upload much of the material since I did not create the site. I was told I had rights just not seeing all the categories and setting buttons to the left of my admin panel unless there is a way to log in to that panel that I am not aware of.

    logged in as domain

    Email sent to creator and will change post to resolve till further notice.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer this post. :0)
