Empty Blog

  1. I'd like to delete every entry on this blog so as to start over or import but I'd like to keep the account.

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

  2. Hi there,
    If you don't have a lot of content and don't wish to wait for Staff to delete it for you then you can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk, so you can start over again.
    bulk delete images & media http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/deleting-files/#bulk-deletion
    bulk delete posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/#bulk-edit
    bulk delete pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/#bulk-edit
    Here's how to permanently delete Trash >

  3. Thanks! It actually is a lot of entries - over 900.

    I first tried the bulk delete for all the entries but ran into errors. I then tried to sort by month and delete about 200 or so at a time but I still ran into errors - although I was able to get them into the trash. Those 200 or so took 4 different tries before finally get them to delete.

    I think it's simply too much.

  4. That's a lot to content. I tagged this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff will 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, please reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty.

  5. Much appreciated and understood.

    Confirm: itswilder.wordpress.com

  6. Cool. :) Now you can subscribe to the thread so you are notified when Staff respond in it.

  7. The blog has been emptied as requested.

  8. Thanks!
