How to hook this back up

I was trying to replace my ceiling fan and well of course I didn't take a picture of how the wiring was before I tore it apart so I'm trying to figure out how to put it back together so everything works. The only thing not in the pic is the fan/light so if you could also let me know where those two wires would go as well would help. This is what I've figured out the yellow circle has the power, red circle is the other bedroom, the blue circle is the switch, and the green circle is the outlet in the room. Thank you!

Assume you only want light switched and not fan.
Connect all red, yellow, green black and blue white and fan black together.
Connect all red, yellow, green white and fan white together.
Connect fan blue to blue circle black.

The light will be switched and fan will operate from pull chain.

That didn't work. It turned everything on except for the light. I don't have the fan hooked up atm so just have a light fixture but it didn't turn on

IF you're sure that the power is coming from the yellow circled wires then try just connecting the fan/light (blue wire only) to that set of wires and see if light works. Then get back to us.

How did you hook the light fixture up?
Did everything else work?

Hi, hook everything up but the blue circle, dose everything work as it did , ie other room and outlet? If so , connect the white conductor from the blue circle to all the blacks, connect the white from fan/light to all the whites, what color wires are left from the fan ? the fan motor is probably blue, connect that to the black in the blue circle, the other wire should be for the light connect it to the group of blacks, the light will now be operated from a pull chain, if you want both light and fan to come on at the same time connect the 2 conductors from the fan to the black in the blue circle.

the fan motor is probably blue,
Typically the light circuit is the blue wire. Black is the fan motor.

Instead of playing the guessing game.
Shut the circuit off. Use an ohmmeter to locate the switch loop cable.
Once you know the switch line.....the other three get connected in parallel.
