I want to delete all the content from my test site

  1. I want to delete all the content from my test site, this is something I was working on a while back as a proof of concept but I want so start over with this account as my personal blog.

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

  2. 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, then please
    (1) reply to confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty
    (2) reply to confirm that you know content deletion is irreversible.

    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.

    I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  3. yes, I understand it is irreversible, it's going to take too much time to do it all manually. I just want it back as if I had started my blog today, completely blank.

    Thanks

  4. You can do it yourself easily. Go to the dashboard Posts page, select all, delete. Do the same on the dashboard Pages page. Go to the Widgets page and remove all the widgets.

  5. Maybe some instructions would be helpful.

    You can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.
