Support » Everything else WordPress » Can I merge my 2 wordpress.org users?

  • So, somehow over the course of the past ~7 years I ended up with 2 different user accounts on here, and due to the email addresses and usernames being similar, I randomly log in with either not noticing it. So my posts and contributions are spread between two different users. Is it possssssible to merge these two? I want to blast the other away to the land of wind and ghosts afterward so I can stop being a derp finally. :B

    The easiest method for transferring posts from one user to another is by simply deleting the first user’s profile account. During the deletion process you’ll be asked whether you want to keep all items associated with that profile, and more importantly, to which existing user account you want to link these posts and comments to.

    Backup: If you haven’t already done, always backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case something really goes wrong. You can never have enough backups!

    Nope. Pick one and I’ll block the other one here.

    Ok, thank you! kinda sad to see my 2014 WCSF attendance deleted but that’s la vie!

    The user I need deleted is “hellojamie” please.

    Done! Or “blocked” as we can’t delete accounts here. 😉

    Hi, it appears to still be using my email. Moving this to the #forums channel on Slack for resolution, thank you for your help!
