Help! My blog shows up as "Untitled" to followers

  1. If people go to my blog and 'follow' it, I get a confirmation like this:

    Dave is now following your blog, "Untitled."

    I signed up from my email and got this:

    Howdy.

    You recently asked to follow this blog. This means you will receive each new post by email.

    Blog Name:
    URL: http://dispatchesfromthepotomac.wordpress.com

    The blog name is BLANK! I’ve contacted WP support and they never get back to me. But I can’t help but think this effects my following. It has to. So annoying. Any ideas at all???

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

  2. Have you gone to Settings->General and put the name in there?

  3. Yep. It's in there! I can't imagine anywhere else I can include it, it just doesn't show up.

  4. That is odd. I'm going to try it myself and see what happens. Looks fine to me.

  5. Whatever the problem was, it seems to have cleared up. I just got :

    Subscribed to Dispatches from the Potomac!

  6. Raincoaster, thanks for doing that, I don't know what the deal is. Still seems screwy at my end with the way I'm seeing those notifications, but as long as it looks normal to viewers that's all that matters. I just don't want people to get a notification of, "Untitled just posted a new blog post" or something.

    Thanks again.

  7. I wonder what happens if you start a second blog? I have like a dozen blogs here that I contribute to, and that would drive me batty.

  8. testing, testing

    What can we help you with?

  10. Hi timethief, Just trying to get a hang of the site, i made my profile a half hour ago or so. Sorry if im intruding on the topic lol, I think it might take me a while. I didn't know how internet and profile-editing challenged i was until today. Getting familiar with the forums and the blog topics I was trying to find a site where I can blog and don't like tumblr.

  11. Ah, perfect. Thank you very much!
