I am new to word press,and I have some questions about  it.
First ,this might sound stupid, I installed the latest version of Word Press,
and I am slowly trying to get a hang of it, My question is, I published the site but why cant I see the the published  comments I posted to test my site? It is only showing the home page  and not the comments, but I added the post thru the dashboard and in the settings the comments are not turned off  from what I can see, I followed the dashboard CMS instructions and published my updated changes , but it is not showing  up when I look for it in IE or firefox browsers , the only thing I am seeing is just the home page introduction I created and published. Why is that?, and again I am complete new to word press and I did read the some of the help material, so I am lost a little bit.

Okay...this is probably a theme issue.  It looks like you have three pages set up so far:

Home
About Us
Open View News

1) Are those all Pages in the WordPress backend?

2) For your Posts, which Category are they assigned to?

3) Did you build the menu (Appearance | Menus) )or is the theme doing that automatically?

4) Which theme is this?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Q1. Yes all the pages are in the word press backend, but I just used there template
Q2. That I don't understand, I didn't  assign any post to category
Q3. I didn't build anything but just imported the image and the only reason the image is there, the profile option won't upload the image on the right area, I tried over and over to import  the image, but for some reason it  wont import to the right side and in the avatar box.
Q4 how can i find out which theme it is? I just clicked  the profile theme on the individual area and i picked the theme that I thought that will fit.

Q2. That means there are going to default category "Uncategorized"  So use this link to see a list of posts:

You need to login to the backend and click Posts, then Categories to set categories.

Q3. Not sure I understand what you are attempting to do but it's clearly a limitation of the theme and your newness with WordPress.

Q4. From the back end go to Appearance | Theme and it will tell you which one is active at the top.
