Change the "Blog Name", Not "Site Title" not URL/Domain

  1. how to change "blog name",

    not the "Site Title", located in General Settings.
    not the URL/domain

    the "Blog Name" is shown when viewing the "My Blogs" button, located in wordpress.com's dark grey navigation bar.

    Looks like many people asked this already and were never answered in a correct/clear manner.
    I already cleared my browser cache and logged in and out. Does wordpress take the "Blog Name" from the "Site Title"?
    Does wordpress.com cache that variable, so it takes a while for the servers to update it?

    please don't answer this question incorrectly, I am a technical person and use the correct terms when applicable.

  2. You cannot change what appears in the My Blogs drop down. If you have domains and domain mapping as I do what appears is the root blog here at WordPress.com name that is being mapped to the domain URL and that cannot be changed. Note also that only you as a logged in Admin and Staff can see that name.

  3. Does wordpress take the "Blog Name" from the "Site Title"? Yes

    Does wordpress.com cache that variable, so it takes a while for the servers to update it? Yes

    You seem to have deleted the blog linked to your username. For future questions, we would need a link to your WordPress.com blog. Thanks

  4. When I clicked your username this is what displayed:

    agiegreetings.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this blog.

    May I suggest that you link your active blog to your username? It's easy to do. Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.
