delete blog, change username

  1. i am trying to delete my blog and change my username. your "help" is no help, as the "tools" section does NOT have a link to delete as your "help" states.

    please "help."

    thank you.

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

  2. Provided you are logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog you can delete any blog registered under that username by using these instructions. http://en.support.wordpress.com/delete-site/
    Note that deleted blog URLs are not recycled.

  3. To change your username see here please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

  4. 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

  5. if only any of those links were helpful. i do not want to look at a name that i set up a year ago and which is defunct, regardless of what it says "publicly." also can't delete the darned blog. where does one delete what is no longer needed.

    thanks for trying.

  6. to clarify, your links were like sgt. shultz, "they did nothing." thanks wordpress. i'll just change the name and set up a new profile using another email. what a waste.

  7. Thanks, in advance, for posting an active link to the exact site you are having difficulty deleting. I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  8. Hi there,

    I'd be happy to take care of the blog for you, but I need confirmation of the URL. When I go to the blog attached to this particular username, I do see "delete blog" when I hover over "tools," but I'm more than happy to finish this process for you.

    To change your username, first make sure you're logged into WordPress.com with the user name you want to change.

    Then, go here:
    https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/users.php?page=grofiles-user-settings

    click "Change" next to your username

    It's really important that you're sure you want to change your username, since you can't change it back.

    If you want to just change your display name, there are instructions here:

    Just let me know at what step you're getting hung up (and if you can take a screenshot, that would be terrific! Here's a bit more information about how to take a screenshot:

    Cheers!
