I have 3 posts to my Blog that were published a few years back--Blog manager says Posts are there.   When I go to the Blog link on my website it says  Page Not Found.  How do I get the right link from the Blog Manager to the Blog Tab on my site?   Thank you for your help.

Hello,

The reason these do not show is because the blog is added to the page blog.html which unfortunately, does not exist in the builder. You will need to create a page and name it blog or add the blog element to an existing published page.

I am so sorry-- Blog is not one of the options I have when I click "Insert"  I have text, rectangle, circle- etc but no blog.  When I log in I am given a choice of Edit / Blog / View Stats     When I click on blog, I find the postings I published 4 yrs ago that are no long attached to the page I names Blog...  do I have an old version?

Maybe you are using the desktop version? If you log in at Homestead.com and click edit site you should see these options.

Perfect, while you hover over text, not clicking, blog will appear on a drop down.

Thank you!

Perfect. As long as the blog element is there that says your blog title appears here and your latest blog appears here, you are good to go. It will show the blogs you created on the published site.
