Why can't I create a new site.

    Whenever I try to create a new blog using wordpress, I am directed to an error page and the page is not created. This seems connected to my account and not my computer or browser as it occurs wherever I log into my account, regardless of the browser or machine I am using.

    Note: I was required to put a blog URL in. This problem is unrelated to the blog and you should disregard the blog url.

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



    As mentioned in the above post, the blog url was required. Disregard the last sentence as this is an account problem, not a problem with a blog.



    There appears to be an issue with registering new blog URLs under existing username accounts at this time. I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.



    I would like it noted I have had this problem for a year or longer.



    Thanks for that additional information for Staff.



    Hi there,

    I’m sorry you’re having trouble setting up a new blog. Can you confirm the exact steps you take to set up the new blog (including the address of the new blog you’re trying to create), and the exact error message you get when you try to set it up? I’ll be happy to look into that for you.



    1. I go to https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?ref=newdash-myblogs-bottom

    2.Any address I decide to input yields the same result, so for the purpose of this I will use the address justinbronzeblog2014 (so the end product should be justinbronzeblog2014.wordpress.com).

    3. Note: The checking… thing circles forever. This is more recent. When this problem was still occurring a year ago, it would say that the address was available and still give me the same error I get now. So I am just noting this, it doesn’t seem to affect or have a hand in the problem.

    4. In the box asking me to ‘Name Your Blog’ I put My Blog 2014. In the drop-down, I allow my blog to be viewable by everyone.

    5. I scroll down and click Create Blog.

    6. After I click create blog, I am ALWAYS redirected to https://signup.wordpress.com/signup/?blog=1

    I always receive this error message: Oops! Sorry an error has occurred. Please click here to contact us so that we can fix it.
    Please remember that you have to provide the full, complete Blog URL, otherwise we can not fix it.
