Transferring a blog to another user

  1. When I click on the link in confirmation email to transfer my blog to a different user, the tab that opens up says, "Your attempt to transfer a blog failed."
    The user I'm transerring my blog to, has a registered wp account. What could be the problem??

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

  2. PS. The blog mentioned above isn't the one I want to transfer.

  3. I am having the same issue!! Did you have any luck solving this?

    What is the username account you refer to?
    What is the URL of the blog you are trying to transfer?

  5. I set up a blog for my friend: simplysarahscents.wordpress.com using my computer and did not realize it that it was attached to my account (bacdancer) and need to move it to hers. She registered and her account is sarahbug320

    Please confirm whether or not you have used the process below.

    To transfer a blog from one username account A to another username account B you must first log in under the username account A that owns the blog you want to transfer to the other username account.

    Then you add the other username account B as an Admin of the blog.
    adding users http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/
    user roles http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    Then you A can use this process to transfer the blog to that username account B instead http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account

    if that is the process you used type modlook into the sidebar of this support forum thread for Staff help.

  7. It worked! I had not added username B as the new admin. Thanks @timethief :)
