    First I created my blog, then I added a second blog: I want to change the site address from to Problem is when I go to the site address change form, it won’t let me because it says already exists. (I know – it’s mine!) What is the best way to execute this change?

    The blog I need help with is


    You can’t change the url from one blog to the url for another blog that already exists. However, you can export the data from one blog, and import it on the other.

    You’ll first need to export the content from the incorrect URL During that process, you’ll download a WXR file, that you will use to import the content into the new site.

    Note, you’ll still need to set up the new site the way you want it (theme, settings, title, etc.) as there is currently no way to import those settings.

    Once you’ve imported the content into the new site, you can delete the old site.



    Thank you. That worked!


    You’re welcome! Glad to help.
