TROUBLESHOOT WITH VREEATING A WEBSITE
I’m a newbie. I just created my first website. I created 15 pages. I went into my menu bar to customise my menu of my “Home Page.” I created six menu tabs and seven sub menu tabs. After I saved my main menu and published 15 pages I went and view my website. I can’t find my menu or my pages. What am I doing wrong? Please help.
The blog I need help with is cpaibooks.wordpress.com.
When you’re in the menu setup page, make sure that the custom menu you created is set to be the primary menu and make sure you click save when you’re done.

Please see https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ first
They must be public pages – not private and not drafts.
Public – The page will be visible to everyone.
Protected – The page is protected with a password you set. Only people who have the password can view a protected page.
Private – Pages are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private pages are not visible in Reader, feeds, or in any search. A page can be private without being password protected.

If you do not succeed then we need to know what the title of the missing and/or URL of the missing Page(s) or sub-page(s) is (are).
This is your detailed theme description page https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/tonal/ Tonal is a theme with a slideout menu that does not display until the icon on the top right hand corner is clicked. https://tonaldemo.wordpress.com/
When I click it I locate the pages and sub-pages you have created an published. They are static pages that will not automatically update.
When we publish a post on WordPress software the software automatically creates the same entry in the Archives, and on the dynamic (automatically updating) Categories and Tags pages in accord with the Categories and Tags we assign to that post.
So when we create custom menu and add the dynamic (automatically updating) category pages to it we create the appearance (not the reality) of posting to more than on page.
You need to be aware that:
1. there are differences between posts and pages described here
2. there are differences between static pages we bloggers create https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ that will not automatically update, and dynamic category pages created by the software when you publish a post which will automatically update https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/.
3. we organize posts by category assignment prior to publication. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/ and when we publish posts the dynamic category pages they automatically display on are determined by the categories we assign to them.
So the process is:
Assign Categories to your Posts.
Create a custom menu https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#1-create-a-custom-menu
Add the dynamic category page links into the menu https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#adding-category-pages
