I changed my username and now I can’t get to some things that remain attached to the old username. Blog url: http://asalaranja.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is asalaranja.wordpress.com. October 7, 2012 at 10:07 pm #1034960 timethiefMember I’m sorry but the answer is “no”. October 7, 2012 at 10:07 pm #1034961 raincoasterMember This is a very common problem. I flagged this thread for staff attention.

Read the information presented on this page very carefully. Important:You will not be able to change your username back. The old name will be reserved and no one will have access to it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/ October 7, 2012 at 10:25 pm #1034970 raincoasterMember I really do not know why they did that. Changing the display name worked just fine.

October 7, 2012 at 10:58 pm #1034978 mudadesenvolvimentoMember I now have the mudadesenvolvimento.wordpress.com associated with the asalaranja username and vice-versa. I would like preferently separated accounts, otherwise at least recover the stated url anyways thanks for the fast response October 7, 2012 at 11:16 pm #1034988 timethiefMember You cannot recover a deleted URL.

If someone in wordpress manages to link the referred account to an email, I think this could be solved. Author Posts The topic ‘Username in limbo’ is closed to new replies.
