    Google Crawling Issue

    Hello,

    I am new here so firstly hello

    I have built my 1st ever website using wordpress and I seem to have an issue I can not fix. Google will not index the home page http://www.ourweddingstationery.co.uk it can do all the other pages just not the home page. Anyone know why as it is driving me nuts!?

    Thank you for your time

    Gavin.

    Code:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    in
    http://www.ourweddingstationery.co.uk/robots.txt ?

    I just created a new one and it now says

    User-agent: *
    Allow: /

    But when I do a test in my webmaster tools I get this...

    Blocked by line 2: Disallow: /
    Detected as a directory; specific files may have different restrictions

    It may take some time to get crawled again by Googlebots.
