I’ve changed my email address and would like to update it on my wordpress page, but it says’ it’s Unable to Update. I’m not sure why it’s saying that. The blog I need help with is januarysfiction.wordpress.com.

You have two separate email address settings at WordPress.com. Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard. Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.

If that doesn’t work, try Users -> Personal Settings in your blog’s Dashboard.

Not sure why, but it did. Thanks for the response guys. December 1, 2012 at 5:24 am #1084991 timethiefMember Yay! It finally worked for you.
