Remove Content

  1. Hi WordPress!

    While the literary magazine we have created through your website is something we would like to maintain, we are interested in conducting a complete overhaul.

    Is it possible to remove all the content from the site but to keep the site name?

    Best,
    Elizabeth Dent

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

  2. Yes you can do that.

    option 1
    You can quickly remove your contents by deleting them in bulk.

    option 2

    If you have tonnes of content 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 type modlook into the tags in the sidebar for Staff attention and post again to this thread to:

    (1) confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty;
    (2) 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.

  3. Please follow the above steps and let us know if you need any further assistance.
