Journals not posted to GL

I have created journals and clicked create new after entering them but they are still not posted the GL. Its as if they are waiting for something to be posted to the GL

How do you know they are not posted to GL? What screen are you looking at?

The affected GL accounts don’t reflect the entries. An example of a journal I created is Debit - Purchases Credit Directors Loan account as he paid for some materials from his own bank account, but neither purchases or the directors loan account reflects the journal. On the journal page the dates are in red for those not posted but the ones that have posted the dates are black.

If the date is red, it means it has been posted before Start Date. You can’t post journal entries which are earlier than your start date set under Settings tab.

Ah thank you, thank you for your time and reply.
