How do I rename a blog to another blog name I already created?

  1. Help! I need to rename my blog. I already created the new blog address with a click on Add New Blog. The blog name shows up in my list of blogs. The problem is that every time I try to change the address of the first blog to the new name, WP says that another blog by that name already exists. I seem to be in a conundrum. Does anyone have any suggestions?

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

  2. Yes: you cannot do this.

    What you CAN do is export the contents of the first blog (on the Tools page of the dashboard) and Import the contents on teh Tools page of the new blog. Then you buy the redirect upgrade to force anyone going to the old blog to end up at the new one.

    It is possible to change the URL of a blog, but not to the URL of an already-existing other blog.

  3. OK. What about just buying a domain name for $18. Do you know how that would work with changing the URL?
    Thanks for your help. I am truly a novice at this stuff.
    Thanks
