  3. cecilielawal.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    You can't restore it in whole or part. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled here and you can confirm by reading:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/delete-blog/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    You may be able to locate indexed content in Google's cache copies.

  4. P.S. I just checked Google's cache and found no indexed content. You have reached a dead end.

  5. Hello Timethief,

    Thank you so much for helping!
    When I deleted my blog, I pushed the Export button, and now I have i XML file on my computer? But I can't open it. Do you know anything about that?

  6. Don't open it unless you are in a plain text editor or you will corrupt it!
    That XML export file can only be imported into another blog.

  7. The XML file has the text and links to media - you can import it and get your text back (no media in an XML file)

    If you do ANYTHING with it please make a backup copy and work with the copy - Please

  8. PS- the format is not human friendly but it can be opened with a plain text editor as @TT noted above and you can also search through it for the text you want - but again - work on a copy

  9. I just tried to import it, and it wrote:We will begin processing your import right away.

    So do I just wait now??

    Thank you both, you have been very helpfull :)

  10. Yes, it can take anywhere from a few minutes to a day. If it's not completed by tomorrow, report back and we'll get staff to look into it.

  11. yes you wait - you should get an email when the import is done - depending on the importer load it can take a few hours - if it is not finished in 24 we can ask the staff to reset the import for you

    You be welcome & good luck with the import

  12. You're welcome and best wishes.

  13. Thank god for people like you!
    You just saved my day.
    I really appreciate your help!! :)

  14. Hey Guys,

    I haven't heard anything yet? So how do I contact the staff?

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

  16. i already subscribe it ..
    I dont know if i should upload it again ?

  17. I would find something else to do while I waited. That is because I know there are many threads waiting for Staff and they deal with threads that have the earliest dates first and move forward ie. first posted - first served.

  18. I'm sorry, but deleted blogs cannot be restored or reused. Deleting a blog is permanent and the name cannot be used again. There are several warnings about this on the Tools -> Delete Site page and in the help pages, and you are required to confirm the deletion by email.

    You can start a new blog by logging in to WordPress.com and then going to http://en.wordpress.com/signup/

    With any blog, you can also use your custom domain with Domain Mapping upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

  19. @macmanx - the OP has a new blog - I think the deleted one was somewhere else and they have a export xml file from the deleted blog - should not they be able to restore the text?

  20. Oh, yes, the file should import. I don't see any success or failure reports here regarding that though.

    cecilielawal, did the import work out?

  21. I imported the XML i downloaded/exportet before i deleted my blog?

  22. Yes, after loading it, it wrote: You file has been succesfully uploaded ...

  23. The files name is cecilielawa.wordpress.com

  24. Ok, so you no longer need help with the import?

    If you do need help, what is the URL of the blog you were importing to?

  25. I think there is a spelling error for the import file - should be: cecilielawal.wordpress.com I think

  26. Nope. I just want to know, when it is importet? I did it yesterday, but nothing is happend yet? I imported it to Loveumeus.wordpress.com

  27. I see no import attempts at http://loveumeus.wordpress.com/

    Please try again and let us know how it goes.

  28. Yes sorry, Cecilielawal.wordpress.com - thats the blog i try to import. And loveumeus.wordpress.com - thats the blog i imported Cecilielawal to:)

  29. (our replies might have crossed)

    I see no import attempts at http://loveumeus.wordpress.com/

    Please try again and let us know how it goes.
