Urgh! Another Mystery- pages

Just got back from Science on Stage in Debrecan, Hungary. I’ll need to write a couple of blogs this week on that, but currently I am still taking it all in!

One of the tasks this summer is to update this site and make it more streamlined. So the obvious place to start is the “About Me” Page.

I know I have a page and a post containing the same details and I altered the link to match the page, but it didn’t work. However, as the link is now to the post after reading the About Me section it continues on to all the other posts I’ve written, which doesn’t look very neat. When I write a new post it then demotes the About Me page and people will have to go searching for it. I think I might have sorted that by making it sticky, but I am not convinced! All of this is not ideal, which is why I want a page. However, I don’t seem to have got the page anywhere I can see it.

So here is the problem. I decided to alter the page, so I could tell the difference between the page and post. I then went to the menu and added the page in the top menu with the post underneath it. However, whatever I did I could not find the page alterations coming up wherever I clicked. Suggesting the page is hidden in the ether. I can’t even get it to show up when I click view page after saving the changes. I’ve saved it loads of times, so it can’t be that.

I’ve read the help files and I am right in that the About Me ought to be a page not a post, but no luck! I haven’t found the video useful as it doesn’t match what I am seeing….

Not sure whether to give up or keep going? As I am rather sleep deprived, sense would say leave it until tomorrow. Instead I’ll work on my Forces song for the European Science Song Competition for Portugal 2019, Science on Stage…. all I need is a good tune…..

….. well if in doubt start again…..

I’ve made a new page and copied the old page into this. It appears to be working. All I need to do now is see if I can change all the links in each section and then I can delete the post and all should be well. I really do need to get someone to talk me through this! It would have helped if I had watched as the website had been set up.

We live and learn, and never stop learning, it just gets harder as we get older!
