Deleting a secondary blog without deleting my whole site.

  1. I recently changed my blogs url and when doing so I forgot to disable my original url. I currently post on atheistalan.wordpress.com having changed from alano1992.wordpress.com, is it possible to delete alano1992.wordpress.com without also deleting AtheistAlan? And if so, how? Because the wordpress "help" section isn't much help.

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

  2. All blogs are independent sites so what you do on or with one has no affect on any others. To delete a free hosted WordPress.COM blog you must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog. To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent and irreversible. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and must be clicked to delete a blog. If clicking that link does not work then copy and paste it into your upper browser window and click.

    Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    Alternatively, to change blog visibility to private so you can use the unwanted blog for testing and or as a backup blog go to > Settings > Reading scroll to Blog Visibility and choose option 3 . See the guide here http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/privacy-settings/ Then see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/
