    I've just started my first blog and I've hit a crossroads, I have some questions for you awesome people out there, if that's okay!

    1) My post won't show up when I publish it? A 404 error appears?
    2) How do I make it so my text in my article goes around the picture? Whenever I add a picture aligned to the left/right it won't let me write next to it, only under it? (eg. http://www.zdnet.com/apple-iphone-6-16gb-review-bigger-faster-better-7000034465/ 2nd and 3rd pic).
    3) How do I make it so I can have a layout like this (http://uniladmag.com/video/) so it shows different articles which you can then click it and goes to the post? Or... how do I assign a post to a page?
    4) Recommended plug ins please?
    5) How do you add social media share icons to the bottom of the article/post?

    Sorry these are potentially the worst questions ever, but i'm so stuck and would love some help. Thanks again!

    OK, this might be difficult if you are not sure.
    Did you use a site builder and create the site in html?
    Or did you install WordPress first and then start creating your site?

    I think you probably need to get some support from Bluehost and ask them to check you have set everything up OK

    Basically I just installed Wordpress and then installed a Theme? Everything else works perfectly? Maybe I should just delete that page and recreate to see if it works?

    For the image and text problem, when you insert the image you can choose how will it display, in this newer version of wordpress you just add the pic and from Edit you select align left, the text will automatically wrap around it. If not and you still have problems, here's a link to help you: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/wrapping-text-around-images-5.
    For the design you want, you will need to search for themes that support those specific features you are interested in. Some are customized for photography blogs, some for culinary ones and so on.
    With the social media buttons problem, go to your blog's dashboard, select Settings -> Sharing, and there you have Sharing buttons, apply them on your blog.
