FAQ: “username already taken” error message

Here’s a quick fix for blog setup when you get a “username already taken” error message.

1. Go to http://blogs.lt.vt.edu and login (link on the right sidebar) with the username and password you’ve chosen.
2. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll find yourself at the welcome page dashboard, where you don’t have editing privileges. No problem–
3. Now navigate back to http://blogs.lt.vt.edu (without logging out of the system).
4. 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.
