Why isn’t it possible to manage 2 blogs with the same account?
I’d really appreciate it if this is possible. Using Blogger, I could manage multiple blogs with the same account. Why can’t this be done in WordPress?
It’s really important, because sometimes there’s one category that doesn’t fit with the blog as a whole. It would’ve been better if I could post it in its appropriate blog (or even page) without switching between users everytime (if I signed up for another account).
Thanks a lot!
Agreed. This would be an awesome feature. A way that almost works is to assign your other wordpress login administrative rights. This way you are able to interface between the multiple blogs. Not always reliable though.
I hope this feature comes soon. It does sound handy.
Let’s wait and see…
It is possible, (with a little work).
- sign up for 2 blogs using 2 accounts
- from one of the blog, add the other user (Users > Authors & Users)
- set roles as Administrator
ok, that’s what i had decided to do, once i saw that my second blog was going to be muddled up with my first. can i delete that second blog without deleting the first (both under same username/login?
right now i have
1 username with two blogs — horrible!!!!
and a second username with one blog
i want to have
one username one blog
other username one blog
but back to my primary question — will i delete both blogs under one username if i try to delete one of them?
“1. sign up for 2 blogs using 2 accounts”
You don’t need to do that.
Once you login into your account, go to wordpress.com. To the right, there’s a box with a message welcoming you:
In this same box there is a list with the blogs you have registered. Then you should see this:
577,450 blogs on WordPress.com. (the numbers may vary)
and below that, you should see a link that reads:
Register another blog »
Click on it and take it from there.
Don’t delete any of your blogs ’cause you won’t be able to re-register them.
UsernameA has BlogA and BlogB
and UsernameB has BlogB
BlogB should have under users 2 admin accounts:
If you want:
UsernameA -> BlogA
UsernameB -> BlogB
Go to BlogB, click on Users > Authors & Users, check the checkbox next to UsernameA (the user you don’t want to have 2 blogs), then under Update Selected, check the radio button next to Remove checked users., then click on the “Bulk Update” button.
Hope that helps.
Thank you, I will give that a try. Removed checked users, then Bulk Update. Let you know how it goes.
Ok, here’s what I’ve got right now:
username A has two blogs – blogname1 and blogname2
username B has one blog – blogname3 — new account
if I delete blogname2 (in username A), will that delete blogname1?
what i’d like to end up with is
username A has one blog –
username B has one blog
When I tried this last night, I was logged in as usernameA blogname 2, but the profile kept returning to usernameA blogname 1, which I very explicitly do not wish to delete.
