Travel Forums System Talk Deleting blog

I was due to go on a trip but this was cancelled thanks to covid. I had started my blog and now want to delete but can't find how.

Go to the "settings" tab for the blog (in the blog management area). At the very bottom of that screen, there's a link "Delete this blog".

Thanks, I found that but it appears to want to delete 79 entries not just one. The new blog is under the same overall blog heading so maybe I have set it up wrongly so that it is linked tightly to other valid blogs?
Thanks,
Steve Deacon

On travellerspoint the term "blog" means an entire subsite. This is what I thought you wanted to delete.
Each blog can contain multiple "blog posts" or "blog entries", which are the pieces of text you write and then publish.

You have 4 blogs:
* Travels with "Jet Set" (79 entries)
* With Jet Set in Europe (8 entries)
* Sam Smart in World War II (0 entries)
* Our maiden holiday in Scotland (12 entries)

I assumed you want to delete 'Sam Smart in World War II'. So you have to go to the settings page for that specific blog, where it sounds like you went to the settings page for 'Travels with "Jet Set"'.

Alternatively, if you only want to delete a single blog post (for example an unpublished draft on the 'Travels with "Jet Set"' blog), you can do that from the "Manage -> Entries" page, where you have to hover over the blog post in question, which will show "Edit" and "Delete" links on the right. If you use a tablet/phone, then "hovering" won't work, so those links won't show up. I think there might be a way to work around that by tapping the whitespace around the entry title or somesuch? I don't really know...

Thank you. Finally got there. Yes it was the latest blog in Travels with Jet Set which I had started.

Many thanks, Steve
