Need help? Check out our Support site, then


Changed site url, I changed my mind I want to revert back to what it was.

  1. I changed my site url, now I want to change it back. But it wont let me as that previous url exists. I dont want to delete that new url, as I may use it later.

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

  2. All support documentation is here http://en.support.wordpress.com
    changing a blog address http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    7. The final option presented on this screen allows you to discard your current address. This option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again.

    Deleted blog URLs cannot be recycled and reused by anyone no matter who registered them. You can confirm by reading:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

  3. Well, what is the previous URL?

  4. I did not delete the previous url. That blog address is still under manage my blogs. I had all my posts under perfectandhealthy.wordpress.com
    changed it to foodsciencediet.wordpress.com so all posts are there now.
    But I want to keep my 1st blog content, and I meant to start a new blog site with 2nd name.

    Thank you for the advice!!!

  5. How many username accounts do you have?
    Which username account registered which blog?

    You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog to access it.

    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

  6. Only 1 username account. All the blogs do show up there.

  7. I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  8. Thank you

  9. You can't change a blog to a URL that exists, so you can't change it back, but you can transfer the content by exporting and importing from the Tools section of the blogs' Dashboards.

  10. Got it. Thank you! Resolved

  11. You're welcome!
