How to reset blog and start all over?

  1. Hello! I would like to transfer my Blogger blog over to WordPress. However, I'm afraid I screwed it up the first time and would like to just try again from scratch. How do I delete all content in the quinthar.wordpress.com blog -- all categories, all settings, all everything -- so I can start over with a clean slate? Thanks!

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

  2. Set the theme as Twenty Ten (or Twenty Eleven; I think those are the defaults now).

    Go to Dashboard->Posts and under the bulk selector hit All, then Delete. You'll have to do this repeatedly if you have a large number of posts.

    Then, I don't know what your other settings are, but you can set them one by one back to zero from the Dashboard.

  3. Unfortunately that doesn't work: once you import a blog, it seems you can't "un-import" it and then start over. In other words, yes I can delete the imported posts, but I can't trigger a re-import. (At least, I can't figure out how.) Any suggestions? Thanks!

  4. That's odd. You should certainly be able to. How, exactly, are you doing it and what specific errors are you encountering?
