    Hi,
    I just changed my blog address, but what I really wanted to do was to change my blog name as well as the address. Is there any way to do this? And in creating the new blog address have I now shot myself in the foot by taking it out of available blog addresses, so even if i set up a new blog with the name i want i can’t have the address to match?

    Can i delete the blog address & create a new one?

    Any suggestions and advice much appreciated!

    Laura

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

    Change the blog name on the Settings->General page. It won’t change on the dashboard for many days.

    Hi Laura,

    as raincoaster said, you can change the blog name in the Settings, General page.

    However, if an address, let’s say superbob.wordpress.com, gets deleted, it won’t be available anymore, at all. So be careful with that step !

    thanks for the help raincoaster & francisbob – under settings > general I changed the “username” to that which I wanted, but perhaps now I just have to wait for the blog to update?
    I can’t see an option for “blog name” anywhere – am I missing something?!

    Thanks again,
    Laura

    Hey there, I guess you’re in the wrong place since there is no ‘username’ field in Settings -> General.

    It should look like this : http://prntscr.com/45i4zz and you’ll find it on that link : http://beatrixbinks.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php
