    I was following a post on how to get the about page to display “About” “Contact” “Home” tabs and somehow I went to display my blog and I just get the contact home about pages without anything else. I lost your template, theme. My site is stamiesworld. I don’t know what I did wrong and I was so proud of everything I had got done up until that point. I just was trying to get the about page to display. I also was trying to figure out if it was possible to have one of those subscribe to receive updates to upcoming posts. Just those two things and I think I lost my look. :(

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello!

    Sorry to hear you’ve hit some issues. Do you recall what settings you last changed before you noticed this? Did your Front page look like our demo site?

    Yes my site did look like your site except for the top right with the pages.I was working on the pages site and then the menu set up. I had everything displayed well except I was not able to display a contact and a about page and that is when I lost everything. Hopefully this makes some kind of sense. I really like this theme.

    Hello!

    It looks like your site is currently using a different theme. If you go to _Appearance → Themes_, are you able to switch back to Collections?

    Sorry I was frustrated so I switched and then switched back and I got it back up but I was still not able to post a page. I think I have something messed up in the page settings with page attributes. I tried changing just one setting and seeing what it would do but either I am not able to see the page or I lose your theme all together. Either way just a bit frustrated. Sorry I posted a question again so you might see me again. I apologize

    Hi again,

    So, it looks like your Front page is displaying correctly again. Is that right?

    Are you now just having problems adding your Contact and About pages to your menu?

    Please let me know if I’m misunderstanding.

    Perfect! Thanks for clarifying this.

    You’ll want to read through these guides about adding pages to a custom menu.

    I don’t know what I did before but it seems to work fine now. Thank you for the help.
    One more minor thing, under the sharing section on the dashboard there is the option for the social media. I wanted to know if the email option is for people to subscribe and follow you or is there some other option to put under a contact page? Hopefully this makes sense.

    Hi again,

    I’m glad to hear you sorted this out.

    I wanted to know if the email option is for people to subscribe and follow you or is there some other option to put under a contact page? Hopefully this makes sense.

    I believe the Email link enables visitors to share your specific post of page by email, it’s not a newsletter form, unfortunately.

    Thank you for letting me know. I don’t know if you guys take suggestions but that would be a great addition to this theme. Thank you for your help!

    You’re welcome!

    WordPress.com does have a built-in newsletter feature, but this requires a widget area. Collections doesn’t support this.
