    Hi, I have this problem on wordpress that is hard to put in words. Like when I click my header it redirects me to the main page on which I see my article. But I do not see it anywhere else. Under recent posts, I click it and it goes to a oops page. I have Home tab on my page but it is not there either. How do I put them there?

    Thanks

    Your main page is usually the posts page by default, meaning this is where all your blog posts will be displayed. You can create another page called "Blog" or whatever you like, and set this to be the Posts page by going to Settings->Reading in the WordPress admin area. I'm a little lost where you talk about your Recent posts page. Perhaps you could elaborate more.

    Actually, I am now faced with another problem. On my home page the author and date is gone which I want. But on another page where I see the article shows the author and date which I dont want. I have been struggling to remove it for sometime now. Can anyone help?

    The WordPress theme you are using specifies where the author and date information are displayed. There may or may not be a setting where you can enable/disable their display. Depending on your comfort level, you could edit the index.php and page.php theme files. Just Google "author tag wordpress" and "date tag wordpress" to see what you need to look for.

    Couldn't get it to work. Still struggling with it. If you can help me via skype that would be nice. Thanks for all your help so far.

    In the top right corner you should be able to change the date. Or just create another author account, and re post it under that, with the date you want.

    Do you use default theme? Try to swith to the default theme and check if everything works well on it.
