  1. I have an account (edwilliamsdevelopment.wordpress.com) that I started with an email that I no longer have access to (I've started a new account just to seek help here).

    I have no idea how I'm supposed to get back in :(

    Please help!

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

  3. Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I've tried that but I have to be able to answer one of these questions:

    - Do you have a transaction ID? What's this?
    - Do you have an activation URL or key? What's this?
    - Do you have two factor authentication codes?

    All of this information would have been accessible from my old email, which I no longer have access to.

    So I am not able to submit this form :(

    Any thoughts on how I might get around this?

    Cheers

    Ed

  4. Well in that case, maybe you can talk to the WordPress staff and see if they can help you with it.

    So to do that, tag this question with the modlook tag on the Tags section of the sidebar, so that this thread gets the staff's attention.

  6. You're welcome @edblogedblog 🙂

  7. Hi Ed,

    Without proof of ownership, it won't be possible to access the site. There are two email address on the account so I have contacted them. For security reasons I can't share the email address with you, so please check all of your accounts.

    Thanks!

  8. Thanks Gemma!

    I've replied to your email - let me know if it hasn't arrived.

    Cheers

    Ed
