How to empty blog content?

  1. Hello.

    I want to have my blog (http://indeni.wordpress.com/) completely emptied of all content, still keeping the blog name though. How is that done? I have already exported all of my content.

    Thank you in advance.

    - Thomas.

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

  2. 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.
    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 >

    Alternatively, if you do have a lot of content, you can tag this thread with modlook in the sidebar and Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and 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.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blog content does not remove it from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 - 6 months.

  4. Thanks for tagging this thread. Please be patient while waiting for Staff to get to this thread as it's the weekend and many other bloggers, who posted before you did, are waiting for their help.

  5. Hi there,

    We can 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 want to make a safe backup of your current content, you can use the Tools -> Export option to create an xml file of your current site.

    Let me know when you are ready for me to proceed with emptying your blog.

    Best,

  6. I have already backed up the things I want to keep, so I am ready for you to proceed emptying the entire blog.

  7. Hi there,

    I have now emptied your blog of its old content. Good luck with your new blog!

    Best!
