    I have tried and tried changing the address of: https://sbstage03.wordpress.com/

    This blog was transferred to me by a nice person on help so that I can use the theme I like, one now not available for new blogs. It is a theme most suitable for photos.

    I have changed the name, etc, of this transferred blog, but I cannot succeed in changing the address to: https://chuckmankodachromesjohnandbobby.wordpress.com/

    This used to be an easy thing to do, but changes in WordPress have baffled me, and I go round in circles from the page that is supposed to change the address.

    Any help appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is sbstage03.wordpress.com.

    Hi, you can only change the address to an address that does not already exist. What do you love about that theme? Maybe we can help you find an updated them with the same features.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the response, supernovia.

    The address I want does not already exist.

    However, I once started a blog with that address and deleted it.

    The address I want, again, is: https://chuckmankodachromesjohnandbobby.wordpress.com/

    If it is the case that those circumstances – once having started a blog and having deleted it – make the address now unavailable, would a very slight change, as adding or subtracting a word, do the job?

    Andrea theme is wonderful for the kind of photographic sites I create. I know it may not suit the smart-phone set, but they are not my audience.

    Here are examples of how well it displays photos:

    If I can’t change the address to the desired one, even with a small change, and you can help finding something with similar display qualities, that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, again, John Chuckman

    Hi,

    I tried dropping one letter from the new address, and it worked.

    So, even though the site I once started was deleted by me, the system still won’t use the exact name of the deleted site.

    I’ve learned something.

    I think this problem is solved.

    Thank you for your responses.

    The system will not let you use names of deleted sites, that is correct. There’s a warning along those lines when you delete them.

    Best wishes!
