transfer blog ownership
I need to transfer ‘ownership’ of the blog to a different admin. The instructions given on WordPress.com are apparently out of date and have no bearing on the current layout of the WordPress dashboard. How do I do this now?
The blog I need help with is ihopeindy.wordpress.com.
This is a blog ownership issue.
Did you register the site in question under your username account ?
What is the URL of the site?
What is the other username account?
Every WordPress.COM blog 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.
You have to be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog’s dashboard. The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:
* You will have to replace “name_of_blog” with the actual blog’s name in that URL.
After the blog’s owner logs in clicking this link should display all blogs registered under the same username account, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden
If the blog’s owner does not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then they need to follow this guide > http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/#my-blogs-dashboard-visibility
If the log-in information is lost they need to visit https://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
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 first and using the process linked to below. https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator

That helps. I didn’t realize I could access the normal WP interface by going to wp-admin. Just logging into wordpress.com gives this other, weird interface for some reason, and it’s very confusing since you can do a lot of the same things in both places, but not everything. Now that I know how to get to the normal dashboard, all is well.
That’s great news. Best wishes.
