FAQ: Never received the confirmation email to setup blog
Here’s a quick fix for blog setup when you get a “username already taken” error message.
- Go to http://blogs.lt.vt.edu and login (link on the right sidebar) with the username and password you’ve chosen.
- Once you’ve logged in, you’ll find yourself at the welcome page dashboard, where you don’t have editing privileges. No problem–
- Now navigate back to http://blogs.lt.vt.edu (without logging out of the system).
- On this page, the original page where you first logged in, click on the link for setting up a new blog, just as you did before. Because you’re now logged into the system, you’ll be able to create a new blog just by following the prompts.
