Random Post: Help!

Until Tuesday, whenever I published a new post I could edit the menu in my sidebar so that when you click on ‘Journal’ you land on the new post. But the facility to edit individual menu items seems to have gone, and I can’t for the life of me work out how to now edit that link.

WordPress what have you done?

Or is it me? Anyone out there who can help? Please…..


It looks like I’ve solved the problem, if you click on ‘Journal’ in the sidebar menu you will land here. But only because I renamed the post, deleted the menu item, and added this post as a new one.

I am an artist and writer living in southwest Scotland. I freelance as a Literature Ambassador (for Wigtown Festival Co. who run the Scottish Book Town); as a creative writing teacher; and a content provider, populating people's websites and marketing materials with perfectly honed, clear sentences. When I'm not gadding about supporting writers, lit events, businesses, and students I write fiction, non-fiction, and the odd poem. I avidly believe that creativity is the answer to the problem.
