Can I empty my blog?

  1. How can I empty my blog of all content?

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

  2. Hi there,
    I imported my blogger blog a long time ago, and now I'm back and I'd like a fresh start with wordpress, but I want to keep my domain name. So I'd like to empty all the content. Thanks.

  3. Hi there,

    If you don't have a lot of content and don't wish to wait for Staff to delete it for you then you can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
    bulk delete images & media http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/deleting-files/#bulk-deletion
    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

    Alternatively, if you do have a lot of content, you can tag this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and once deleted, the data cannot be recovered. If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, please reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty.

  4. Hi @kellkell72. If you'de like to empty your blog, please send us a support request: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  5. Sorry about the confusion. If you want I can delete the blog for you. Note that blog deletion is permanent and the name can never be used again. Please reply to confirm.

    If you want to temporarily hide your blog instead, please use privacy option so only you and logged-in members of the blog can view it.

  6. No, I don't want to delete it or hide it. I'd like to empty it of content. Like I said, I want to hang on to the name.

    Will send a support request. Thanks.

  7. Yikes, sorry about the confusion. Shall I empty the blog for you now?

  8. So...how do I send a support request? The link above just takes me back to the generic support page.
