[resolved] Cannot delete my blog from account (6 posts)

    Hey! I need my blog deleted (http://lewni.co.uk) from my account. However, I no longer have access to the dashboard since I removed it from my webhost.

    How would I go about removing this blog from my WordPress account?

    What WordPress account? wordpress.org distributes and documents the WordPress application but has no direct connection with any site running that software.

    Let me explain the situation a little. I started a WP-hosted blog on .COM. After realising the limitations, I decided to host one elsewhere using .ORG. So I purchased a domain, installed WP to my host, etc. For various reasons, I've decided to take the blog down for now (was considering using Joomla, although that idea has definitely gone out the window) and stick to my WP-hosted blog until I decide what I am going to do in future in terms of domain and hosting is concerned.

    Anyway, while I was configuring the setting of my self-hosted blog (I believe it was when I imported my XML though I'm not sure), I managed to somehow link my self-hosted blog to my WP-hosted blog. Now, when I'm on wordpress.COM, and I go to my "Blogs" page, it has a link to my self-hosted blog (lewni.co.uk).

    I've no idea why, but I cannot now 'un-link' it, since the self-hosted blog no longer exists.

    ... I hope this makes sense :-s

    You need to ask your question on http://en.forums.wordpress.com/ We can't help you with regard to your wordpress.com account here.

    Yeah, I thought so. I asked there and got directed here. Hehe.

    Thanks, Esmi. I thought the question would be better suited there. Guess they just didn't want to help.

    Thank you for your time.

    When you do repost over on wordpress.com, just make it very clear that you are asking for an old, self-hosted site, to be unlinked from your wordpress.com account.
