Unpublish Site

  1. I have tried multiple times to un-publish the site however it keeps publishing it and making it public.

    I'd like to take it down for a bit or redirect (how much does that cost?)

    I have tried all I know how and I still can't

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

  2. I don't know what you mean by "unpublish the site".
    Do you mean: I want to make the blog private?

  3. re: the front page error message

    Nothing Found
    Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.

    By default the front page of your blog displays all posts. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of the blog appeared because the Admin of the blog deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. Read the differences between Pages and Posts.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    On the bottom of your Admin page you will find a link to the step by step Learn WordPress.com blogging Tutorial prepared by Staff. http://learn.wordpress.com/
    The support documentation is all found at the Support link http://en.support.wordpress.com which is also on the bottom of your Admin page.

  4. I have tried everything and it is still publicly visible and I need it private so I dont have to delete it

  5. You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered any blog and who is the Admin of the blog to access it.

    Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
    follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility

    If you have lost your log-in information you can visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

  6. Settings > Reading
    Site Visibility
    __Site Visibility Allow search engines to index this site
    __Discourage search engines from indexing this site

    Note: Neither of these options blocks access to your site — it is up to search engines to honor your request.

    __I would like my site to be private, visible only to users I choose
    "save changes"
