Delete ALL CONTENT from site

  1. I would like to PERMANENTLY delete ALL content (media, posts, pages) from my site BUT I do not want to close or delete the site itself. I want to keep my URL . I am moving the blog in a different direction.

    The help section says I need a "Happiness Engineer", when I clicked the link I eventually ended up here.

    Where are the Happiness Engineers? OR Is there anyone here who knows how to do this?

    I am a WP dev and would normally have truncated the db and killed the files via FTP. Alas not doable on the free site :-)

    Thanks
    Hari

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

  2. Thsi thread is tagged for Staff assistance. Staff can and will can empty the whole blog for you, but that will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files. Once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.

    If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, then please
    (1) reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty
    (2) reply to confirm and know content deletion is irreversible.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove it from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months.

    To start over in step by step fashion use the tutorial Staff have linked to on the bottom of your Admin page at http://learn.wordpress.com

  3. You can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
    Alternatively, we can empty the whole blog for you, but that will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files.
    Once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.

    If you are sure you want to proceed, please reply to confirm the name of the blog you want us to empty.

  4. Awesome.

    Yes. I want to delete ALL THE CONTENT - posts, pages, media, comments etc .

    I do want to keep the blog live and active.

    Yes, I understand there is no backups and no restore. That is fine. This was an import from Tumblr that failed. I still have my Tumblr.

    Here is the blog.
