en WordPress.com Forums › Support Removing the initial administrator Author Posts October 5, 2012 at 10:55 am #1032187 barbara1999Member Our blog was begun by one person but it now has three administrators. Is it possible for the initial administrator edit their user role, or even to remove themselves altogether from the blog, without that upsetting the rest of the blog? We are scared of doing this in case it upsets things. Blog url: http://cryingoutforjustice.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is cryingoutforjustice.wordpress.com.
