how to delete a blog that doesn't show up in my dashboard

  1. Back in 2006, I created a blog at as part of a course I was teaching. I believed I had either deleted this blog or made it private, but today when I was vanity-googling, it popped up (I'm pretty sure it didn't used to show up when I googled myself, but I haven't done so for at least a few months). The project as conceived didn't work out as I had planned, and the blog contains student work I'd rather not have public (not that it's bad, it's just not mine). So I'd really like the blog deleted. I can log in to a wordpress account, and I assumed it was the one I had used to create the blog. However, the blog doesn't show up in the dashboard, which means either something is wrong, or I used a different account for which I no longer remember the username/password. If it was a different account, it is probably associated with the e-mail address I had during that job, to which I no longer have access.

    So: how do I go about deleting the blog/getting it deleted? Thank you so much!

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

  3. Um, actually, I did include the blog address, but I can include it again if that helps:

  4. Also, quick update: I think I must have used an old account to create this blog, because the one under which I'm now posting was created after the date on which the blog I wish to delete was created (if that makes any sense). Thanks!

  5. I've flagged this thread for Staff attention.


    this is the log-in for that blog - and yes if it is not on your current Dashboard then you created it with a different account.

  7. PS - the supportbot means well but sometimes it misses a link - the limits of an automated message.

  8. Thanks, all! (no disrespect meant to the supportbot!)

    So it seems I need to find out how to get access to an old account, probably associated with a defunct e-mail address? (I have tried variations on my usual usernames and passwords, but am drawing a blank since I haven't thought about this since 2006.) I do know what the address was, though it's no longer valid.

    Good - do not post that here. Email that and the URL to Staff [email redacted]

    Chiming got me in trouble for trying to help in another thread - oh well - some days are like that -

    With the dead email staff help is required - so thanks for the link - or should I say the OP thanks you for the link -

  12. I do thank you for the link! (I looked around the website but apparently support is offline for a few days, so couldn't find an address, and I wanted to try to address this now in case I forgot about it.) All the help is much appreciated!

  13. You're welcome. :)
