Removing the founding Admin
Our manager started our wordpress blog a few years back. She is now out on a long leave due to pregnancy. I am trying to remove her from the blog but it won’t let me. I am also an admin, but I can’t make changes to her settings. How do I over-ride and remove her from our WordPress blog?
The blog I need help with is selmassc.wordpress.com.
You misunderstand the situation. You cannot remove the actual owner of the site.
Companies. groups and organizations of any kind do not own sites.
Every WordPress.COM site has a sole owner. It is the person with the WordPress.COM username account who registered the blog under that username account and a single associated email address, and who is the original Admin of the blogs registered under that username account.
If you do not have the required access you need to contact the person who registered the account and site under it and have them transfer the sites to your username account by using this process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account
The owner of the site can transfer the site (and/or upgrades) to another account by adding another username account as an Admin. https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator
