    I would like to keep the site mikepluta.wordpress.com active, but would like to wipe the content.

    The blog I need help with is www.mikepluta.com.

    We provide support only for wordpress.COM hosted sites. Our support docs do not apply to
    (1) local installs of wordpress.ORG software on your own server or
    (2) wordpress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, and we do not provide support for them at wordpress.COM.

    You are posting to the wrong support forum.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    As you are referring to a site that is not hosted here, if you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG account, then click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right-hand corner of the page that opens, https://wordpress.org/support/register.php so you can post to the support forums there.

    WordPress.org support docs are at https://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page

    OOPS!

    re: mikepluta.wordpress.com

    You have two options:

    (1) Doing this quickly and easily yourself http://en.support.wordpress.com/empty-site/
    (2) Waiting in a queue and having Staff do it for you.

    Staff can empty the whole blog for you. That will remove all data including posts, pages, tags, categories, comments, and uploaded files and once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting blogs and/or blog content does not remove indexed content from the SERPs (search engine page results). Google and Bing only clear their caches of deleted indexed content that produces a 404 (page not found) every 3 – 6 months. To completely remove an entire page from Google search results after it produces a 404 (page not found):
    https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6332384?hl=en&ref_topic=1724262&vid=0-635749429504660340-12158368555624983465&rd=1

    If you are sure you want Staff to proceed, and you are prepared to wait type modlook into the tags in the sidebar of this thread for Staff attention, and then post again into this thread to:

    (1) confirm the URL of the blog you want them to empty;
    (2) confirm that you know content deletion is irreversible.

    Hi there,

    Our support page can assist you in this process.
    If you have tons of content on your blog, we can do it for you, but you can accomplish clearing your site fairly easily with bulk actions whenever you’re ready.

    Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like for me to proceed with emptying your site content.

    Thanks,
