nothing works

  1. I wanted to change mvslowfood to la vie en martha's vineyard. I can't log in to other wordpress sites. It says everything from email address to username is invalid when trying to get new password. Apparently I'm not here. mvslowfood is a name that belongs to someone else, I don't want it and tried to delete it, but unsuccessfully. All those directions about what to do DO NOT Work. So this blog just sits here unable to be used and unable to be deleted. Great. Go WordPress. (Yes, it does log in on one place here, don't know why.)
    Thanks.

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

    I'll tag this for staff attention as it might be they are the only ones who can help you straighten this out.

    What is the URL you had originally and what is the URL you changed it to?

  3. Thank you. This is the original url -

    http://mvslowfood.wordpress.com/

    and this is what I Tried to change it to:

    https://wordpress.com/?ssl=forced#!/settings/public-profile/

    Good luck!

  4. http://mvslowfood.wordpress.com/ is still connected to your account mvslowfood, which you are logged in as (or you wouldn't have been able to post here).

    What you did do was change your display name to "La Vie en Martha's Vineyard" (usernames can't contain spaces).

    You can change your username following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

  5. As I said IT DOESN'T WORK!@! Seriously what don't you understand about it?
    Try it yourself.

  6. Ok, would you please elaborate on "IT DOESN'T WORK" so I understand the situation? Specifically, what doesn't work for you?

  7. I cannot log in to WordPress anywhere but here, and that doesn't always work.
    I can't change the display to read la vie en martha's vineyard from mvslowfood which is a national organization. At one time I was going to do their website but they went another way. It's a copyright infringement.

    When I try to use that those settings to change it where the lines turn yellow?
    Then write in small letters. doesn't work. I can do it a hundred billion times.
    doesn't work!

    We've gotten absolutely nowhere still.

    thanks anyway. I've spent years trying to get this fixed. yea wordpress.

  8. Nor does it allow me to follow the blogs I list.
    Nothing works.
    I tried to delete it - that didn't work.

  9. Ok, let's focus on one thing for now, changing "mvslowfood to la vie en martha's vineyard."

    Usernames cannot contain spaces. Your display name can, but not the username you log in to.

    Try changing your username to "lavieenmarthasvineyard" (notice the lack of spaces and no apostrophe) following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

    You'll be given the option to change your blog's name as well, so make sure that you do that.

    If you still have trouble, please let me know exactly what didn't work when you attempted to change your username (which is still mvslowfood) to lavieenmarthasvineyard.

  10. Good log in, thanks WordPress - thanks for the reply -
    as soon as I have time to go through the proper steps
    and double check I will let you know how it goes.
    Thanks, appreciate your help.

  11. You're welcome!
