How do I delete all of the content from a site?

  1. I was using a site for class practice and want to change everything/remove content so I can use it for another purpose
    Blog url: http://classpractice.wordpress.com/

  2. You have to remove one by one. make sure you export all the data first. Then click on Posts and Select All Posts and from the dropdown, select "Move to Trash". Do the same thing with Tags and Categories and you are done.

  3. Thanks! I wasn't sure if there was some way to accomplish this in one clean sweep - thought it worth checking before I started getting rid of things. Your input is greatly appreciated.
