I want to change my Url but it won't allow me?

  1. Url will not allow me to change it
    Blog url: http://gcross1987.wordpress.com/

  2. What are you trying to change it to, and how are you doing it?

  3. I went via 'My Blogs', through dashboard and then clicked on change this address.

    I filled out the 2 boxes, being the new address and the confirmation. They match exactly but when I hit save, it tells me they don't match.

  4. And I'm trying to change it to thecatsmeeow.wordpress.com because it defaulted to my email address and I don't want that.

  5. But that is with 3 x e ?

  6. Don't waste your time with a name change - the blog linked to your name is empty - just register a new blog name that you want and start blogging - set the old blog to Private and use it for testing and learning without messing up your "Real" blog

  7. But that is the blog name I really want, otherwise it wouldn't be an issue.

  8. Then register it as a NEW blog instead of trying to change your existing blog to it.

  9. The address thecatsmeeow.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved!

    Is reserved for you (your user name) - you should be able to just register it while logged in

  10. You can't register it as a new blog, once the name has been used, it cannot be used again on a new account.

    I've tried so many times to change it and it keeps telling me it doesn't match but it clearly does. So frustrating!

  11. Well, after many MANY attempts, I finally changed it.

    Problem solved!
