Blog and account have become detached ...

  1. My blog (http://natureofdorset.wordpress.com) seems to have become detached from my account (peterorchard)! If I log in as peterorchard it says I have no blogs but if I access the URL directly the blog appears with my user name shown top right! As soon as I go to the settings on my account I lose track of my blog again and it says I don't have one. I hope that makes sense! Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is natureofdorset.wordpress.com.

  2. How many username accounts do you have an which username account registered the blog in question?

    You cannot access a blog without being logged in under the exact username account that registered the blog.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

  3. Thanks for that but sadly it does not help! As I said originally my account shows no blogs against my user name but I can still access my blog through the URL which then shows my user name. As soon as I access the dashboard through the user name it loses track of the blog!

  4. I don't know what you mean by "it loses track of the blog".
    Have your tried logging in by using the email address rather than the username?

  5. http://natureofdorset.wordpress.com/ is still accessible by your peterorchard account.

    Are you able to access https://natureofdorset.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ directly?

  6. I can access the blog but not the wp-admin page - I get this message:

    "User peterorchard Cannot Access the Dashboard Requested

    You are logged in as "peterorchard" and do not have the necessary privileges to access the dashboard for "The Nature of Dorset". If you are not "peterorchard", please log out, and log back in with your username. If you are "peterorchard" and you need access, please ask an administrator of the site to invite you.

    If you reached this screen by accident and meant to visit one your own sites, here are some shortcuts to help you find your way."

  7. I do apologize, as peterorchard, you have access to http://naturedorset.wordpress.com/ not http://natureofdorset.wordpress.com/

    http://natureofdorset.wordpress.com/ belongs to a different WordPress.com account.

    If you have lost access to that WordPress.com account, please visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword and click "Need More Help?" if necessary.
