Can't access my blog.

  1. I changed my blog address and now I can't access it yet I'm still receiving 'like' emails.

    The blog is http://www.2dplus.wordpress.com

    Please delete the blog http://www.2dplus.wordpress.com

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. You keep getting that error because that's the wrong URL. Did you mean http://2dplus.wordpress.com/ instead?

    Well yes that's the correct address/url. A bit of history: I created livingux, then changed the name and address to 2dplus, and since then I couldn't access the dashboard yet I'm still receiving emails with people 'liking' and 'following' 2dplus.

    I have since started another blog from scratch and don't need 2dplus but seeing as I can't access the dashboard for whatever reason, I can't delete the account myself.

    I need an administrator to do this for me.

  5. I flagged this for staff. Usually when it happens it's because you have two different usernames, but sometimes there's a glitch and you literally can't get to the blog. They'll sort it for you.

  6. Yes that seems to be what has happened. I simply can't see why I couldn't access the blog.

    Thank you for your help, it's very much appreciated.

  7. You selected to change your username to match the blog when you moved it. You'll need to log in under that new username to delete it.

    Thanks for replying. This is the conundrum I'm having. I can't log in using my new or old password. I created the blog and still receive emails with likes and follows yet when I try to log in, WordPress says it's not my blog. How is this possible?

    As raincoaster has stated, there is obviously a glitch somewhere when changing blog addresses that alter permissions. I need an admin person to delete the blog for me. Happy to provide any details necessary to prove I created it.

  9. There definitely wasn't a glitch, you chose to create the new username 2dplus when you changed the blog's name, so you'll need to log in as 2dplus not marchaha.

    If you have lost access to that WordPress.com account, please visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    The reset email will be sent to the email address that assigned to 2dplus, which will not be the same email address as your marchaha account.

    Please check your email's spam section if you don't see the reset email in your inbox, and please let us know if that doesn't work for you!

  10. Macmanx,

    I've used the lost password route and managed to rest it and delete my old blog. I'm fairly sure I did the same thing before but it doesn't matter now as it has worked.

    I'm still waiting on the confirmation of the blog's deletion, hopefully that will come through soon (I'll keep checking the spam section as well).

    Thank you for your help and patience.

  11. You're welcome!
