Says my blog doesn't exist!
I set up my blog about a week ago and changed the domain name once I’d set it up. The blog suddenly disappeared after a few posts, so I tried again with a new blog. I changed the name again, and I think this was the problem, because now the blog “doesn’t exist” again.
How can I get it back up and running??
Old URLs were curriekirkgapyahblog and curriekirkgapyahsite, the one I’m trying to use now is curriekirkgapyah.wordpress.com.
The blog I need help with is curriekirkgapyahsite.wordpress.com.
@curriekirkgapyah did you still need help? This was indeed due to the name changes; we had a bug and have fixed that.
Your curriekirkgapyah site looks like it’s okay now, but if you need more help, let us know.
HELP! This same thing happened to me! My blog is for a project and I am freaking out! The blog I need help with is tastetravelteach.wordpress.com
The name of the site before was elonteachingfellow.wordpress.com
This site does exist https://elonteachingfellow.wordpress.com/ and was registered by https://en.forums.wordpress.com/profile/elonteachingfellow
You need to log out, and clear your browser cache https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-your-browser-cache and cookies. https://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/#clearing-wordpress-com-cookies and log in under the correct username account to access the blog.
The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:
* You will have to replace “name_of_blog” with your actual blog’s name in that URL.
If the log-in information is lost you need to visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
@timethief we had an odd bug with the URL changing tool. A few of the sites that were changed during that time did not get changed all of the way. Those users may get this “doesn’t exist” error, even when we can see the site ourselves.
We’ve fixed the bug that caused this, but are still fixing affected sites. We have no simple way to sift them out. If you run into any like this, add a “change url” or “doesn’t exist” tag, and modlook us. Getting the old and new URL can be helpful, too. Thanks!
Thanks for that heads up on the bug. I deliberately posted into this thread because I had a suspicion that was the case.
