My new username is not working

  1. Hi, I'm having trouble with my profile. Everything on the dashboard shows me as Lunasel (my new user name) but everywhere else, including on comments on my own blog, I'm shown as Emmy and when you click on my name, it goes to my inactive blog. This despite changing it everywhere including to my email address.

    Thanks

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

  2. Here is an example, on this post I am listed as Emmy but if you click on the link, it goes to the defunct blog.

  3. Here is the email I got:

    Dear user,

    You recently requested to have the administration email address on
    your site changed.
    If this is correct, please click on the following link to change it:
    http://emmiscafe.wordpress.com/wp-admin/adminemail/4cde0e1d2ed3a04fc1a94a1f408dc0ff/

    You can safely ignore and delete this email if you do not want to
    take this action.

    This email has been sent to [email edited for privacy]

    Regards,
    All at WordPress.com

    SO I clicked on the link and it took me to "emmiscafe is no longer available".

  4. on this post I am listed as Emmy

    What post?

  5. @airodyssey oh rats, I forgot the link and limited to the iPad, sorry. If you go to my blog it will be about the third or fourth post down titled something about solstice holiday trees. Thanks.

  6. If you are talking about the comments on your own blog, you can edit them so that the name and/or the address for your own comments are up to date.

    If you are talking about the username "lunadesel", right now it appears to link to an active blog, so in theory, any comments you make from now on should direct to your existing blog.

    Another place where your old link might still be is your Gravatar public profile. Click on the link below to edit it.

  7. Oh, thanks! I can edit the comment? I assume that's only from my own blog? Gravatar gives me the option to change the profile but says I don't exist when I click on the profile account.
