Help

This is a WordPress.com blog. Search Support.Wordpress.com for help.

Also check WordPress.com Forums.

Searching Google will not give good results because most information will refer to WordPress.ORG blogs. You don’t have one of those. This is WordPress.COM. What is the difference?

Remember posts go on a blog, pages go on the navigation. For more, read Post vs. Page

If all else fails, post a question to the WordPress.COM support forums, but read this first, which was taken from here.

What You Must Know Before Posting in WordPress.COM Forums

Make your name link to your blog so we can answer
Go into your dashboard -> users -> your profile -> then scroll down to ‘contact info’. In the spot where it says ‘website’ fill in the address of your blog and save the changes.

Now… when you comment here and on other blogs, your name will link to your blog. If you do this before you post your request for help, it will allow forum volunteers to be able to help you quicker since they won’t have to ask you for a link and wait until you come back to post one.

Please Search The FAQ First
WordPress has an FAQ blog, and an FAQ sticky at the forums. You should read at least the sticky before posting, because if you might have a really elementary blogging problem and the answer is waiting for you there. Would recommend the FAQ blog though, since it comes with a search button.

Please Search Past Forum Threads
If you can’t find a satisfactory answer from the FAQ, the chances are pretty high that your blogging troubleshooting has been experienced before. Threads are never deleted so new users can benefit from seeing what has gone before. It may take about three tries using the search button of the forums to find the right thread, but it helps to be specific. Don’t just type one-word searches. Use several words to narrow down the search result. My favorites are the threads marked [closed] because they’re usually juicy and dramatic threads.

Please Be Polite
Politeness is the absolute in WordPress forums. If you’re polite, volunteers will be polite in return. If you do not search the FAQs before you post a question, you may get a relatively rude reply. Being new at this does not mean it is okay to be lazy. Experienced posters typically say what they have tried and where they have looked when they post a question. Humility and patience go a long way. Politeness includes saying thank you after your blogging issue has been resolved.

Please Be Specific
A lot of people seeking help from the forums are not explicit when explaining their problems. This lengthens the process of solving their blogging problems. The more specific you are in explaining your situation, the faster volunteers can solve your issue because they don’t have to spend time asking you more questions to help them help you. Please include a link to your blog or the specific blog post that has the problem.

Please Remember the Forums are Mostly Made Up of Volunteers
There are people who create new threads thinking as if the forums are manned by staff only. This is not true; in fact, a lot of support questions are solved by volunteers and voluntary moderators. WordPress Forums works on a volunteer system. Occasionally, some people with the label Key Master help out in the forums. They are WordPress staff. If you want to contact the WordPress staff directly, look for the feedback button on the top right of your Dashboard. It should be there during weekdays, but not during weekends as staff do not work then. Writing to Feedback does not guarantee a reply, but it is guaranteed that your message will be read. So the forums are still your best bet of looking for a solution to your blogging issues.

Please Remember that WordPress.Com is a Free Blogging Service
There are people who complain in the forums and demand for things as if they are paying for this. Although there are certain paid options like customized domains, CSS and such, wp.com remains largely a free service and as such, you should ask for anything politely and respect any decision that rejects your request. Don’t give up though, because they could change their minds and offer a feature that you might have requested before if there is demand from other users.
