Delete Extra Linked Blog

    Hi there,

    I have my self-hosted blog (davidakennedy.com) listed twice in my linked blogs section for my WordPress.com account. I believe this happened when I installed Jetpack… It looks like one is listed with my API and linked to Jetpack – it ends with 10942521.

    Can someone delete the other davidakennedy.com? From what I found it the forums, this has to be done by support staff.

    Thanks so much!

    The blog I need help with is davidakennedy.com.

    The blog you specified at davidakennedy.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    So I traded a few emails with the great WordPress.com Support staff, and they didn’t seem to have a solution for my two linked blogs. Nothing they suggested worked.

    The more I investigated, the more I figured out…

    Turns out, each linked blog was from a separate WordPress.org plugin: Akismet and Jetpack – linking the same WordPress.org site to my WordPress.com profile.

    I uninstalled Jetpack since I don’t really need it, but obviously rely on Akismet for spam protection.

    Problem solved.

    No problem! It will be interesting to see if this is solved in the future, and both plugins use the same integration method – maybe the API key.
