Changing username

  1. Hi,

    I would like to change my existing username of 'jkdavidson' to be the same as my profile name 'roseparks', so that web address of posts would be http://roseparks.wordpress.com instead of http://jkdavidson.wordpress.com. However I would also like all existing posts to be moved across to the new username. Does this happen automatically when changing the username. I do not want to start a new blog.

    Please note I do not want to do the easier option of changing my profile name.

    Thanks for your help.

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

  2. Have you read this section http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/ of support documentation carefully?

  3. Thank you 'timethief'. I have seen this but just wanted to be absolutely sure that existing posts would be moved over to the new username. Presumably by selecting the following option should do the trick.

    Selecting “Change example.wordpress.com to match my new username and discard the old address” will change the address of your current blog. If your new user name is newusername, your blog’s address will be changed to newusername.wordpress.com

    Thanks.

  4. You're welcome.
