I'm practising on settup up my website. I tried to add one more page to my site (from 3 to 4) by going to SiteRubix - my site - Dashboard - pages -new page and just add some random content. I saved the page and then went to Appearance - menu to ensure my new work is there. But after I've done all this and launch my website, I could only see the page as it was before my new work. I'm not sure if I have missed anything or made a mistake. Appreciate expert advice. Thanks.

Hi there Chengckalex...Did you "Publish" your page..? Hitting the save button will save the content but not publish it. Try that my friend. Jamie

I guess I should have done that. Can you check if you can see the page and let me know if you may have any comments, thanks.

It's there and it's a beauty! Nice, clean and "breezy". Nice colors and generally pleasant. Awesome job Chengckalex!

Hi,

How did you save the page? Did you save it as a draft?

Or did you publish it to your site?

Your website has been live on the internet since you built it with Siterubix so there would be no reason for it not to show.

If it's only a draft copy you would only be able to see it by going to that actual page inside your WordPress editor. Choose to view the page from there.

If you published your page and it's still not showing that's a different problem that could have many different solutions.

You can post a link or private message me the link to your site and I would be happy to take a look.

Cheers,
Lori

Hi chengckalex,

Inside your WordPress Admin go to:

Posts-->All Posts

Have a look at the posts you have there. Click on the one you want to publish. Now once you go into that post:

Scroll down nearly to the bottom. There's a blue button that says "Publish"

I attached a screenshot so you can see what I'm talking about.

Hi Alex,

I had a look at your site and it is good. You have great content on it you just need to polish it up.

I am guessing that English isn't your first language so you will need to have someone help you proofread your work so it reads well. I can give you some help with your proofreading if you want.

Also your DIY Personal care page isn't finished. There's nothing after:

"This page is to"

You can send me a private message if you want some proofreading done and I will give you a hand.

Cheers,
Lori

Hi Alex, I noticed on your profile you haven't added any websites yet. If you save a page as a draft page it won't show on your menu list or your dashboard until you actually publish it. If you have structured your website you should publish it and add pages, either saving them as a draft until your happy with them before publishing. Once you have published them you can edit and update them as you go along. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Thank you Harry. Because of this is my very first website, there are quite a lot to be touched up. But I think it is better for me to post it even though it is kind of handiapped site in my view. By doing so I can obtain more valuable comments from other fellow WA members here.

My next question, how can I post my site?

Once again, thanks Harry.

Hi, don't worry too much about how your site looks at the moment, as it is unlikely that anyone will see it until it is indexed by the search engines, the main thing is to get it online.
If you have followed the training correctly on how to set up a website and add pages and posts, your site should be showing online, however, as previously said, unless you go public and publish your site, pages and posts, they will never show online.
Don't get disheartened, many now successful members found it hard to master the lessons initially, and I would suggest you go back to the training lessons in Getting Started, review the lessons and see if you can find where you are going wrong.
You most probably haven't got a link I can click on to have a look at exactly where you are up to, but if you know how to make a screenshot of what you've got you can PM me an I'll have a look. Best wishes and hope this helps.

In the menu section, there is a tab at the top called "manage locations", make sure you have the right menu specified there.
