Setting up Blog doesn't quite work

Permalink Browser Info Environment
When I add content block if I don't actually type anything in the block it vanishes. The nav butons for some reason provide a complete sitemap list even though I told the control Chronological yet it still shows all my other pages.

Actually adding a blog entry is confusing in the directions. I did not have to manually create most of this as most of it sprang into existence when I install the add on. Your help would be great appreciated.

OK Where are you adding the content block?

To add your blog post you
1. login to your site
2. top right of the admin bar, choose 2nd to last button (Add pages...) in between the search and the dashboard button.
3. Choose Blog Entry under New Page
4. A form will show (Fill in the details)
Entry Name = Title of the blog
URL Slug will automatically be completed.
Short description (This shows on the blog page list)
Topics Choose the relevant ones for the blog post
Thumbnail add one if required
Content = the main blog post.

Then publish the page. this should now be in the list on the blog page.

If you are still having issues PM me your site and login details and I will have a look for you.
