    I’m trying to remove one of the two user accounts associated with my new blog. The first one on the blog is the account I used to make the blog. Then I made a second account so my personal account isn’t associated with this blog in any way. However the system wont let me. How can I remove the first account and leave only my new account attached to this blog.

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

    Hi,

    Go to the below link
    https://nomadicllama.wordpress.com/wp-admin

    select Users down below in the side bar and select the user account you would like to remove
    Click on bulk action dropdown and select remove

    Also please read the support doc below
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/#renaming-accounts

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.

    @thenomadicllama,

    Hi. So, does the site presently have two administrators? If the original username is still the owner of the site, then no other administrator will be able to remove the owner as a user. A change of ownership will be necessary in order to accomplish that.

    See the Transferring a Site to Another WordPress.com Account support page. Once User A (the owner/original administrator) has transferred the site to User B, as described in the support page, then User B (new owner) may remove User A from the Users.

    If you’ve followed the steps outlined above and the intended result is not obtained, then you may add a “modlook” tag to the sidebar of this topic to call for staff attention.

    I should have said:

    Once User A (the owner/original administrator) has transferred the site to User B, as described in the support page, then User B (new owner) may remove User A from the Users, as described by @iamrishaan above, or in the Removing Users section of the User Roles support page.

    Thank you for the help. I didn’t realize I had to transfer it over. I got it all settled.

    Thank you again. I appreciate you all and the help.
