Allow URL changing?

    Hi, WordPress is not letting me change my URL. It says the feature's been 'disabled.'
    Blog url: http://bandfeedme.wordpress.com/

  2. We cannot change permalink structure on any free hosted WordPress.com blogs.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-title-url/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-title-url/
    The post/page slug is the part of the URL between the last two forward slashes. You can modify the post/page slug by clicking the Edit button next to it and shortening it.

    If the inability to change permalink structure on free hosted WordPress.com blogs is a deal breaker for you then you can hire a web host and set up a WordPress.org install.

    We used to be able to. Is WordPress just becoming more restrictive. There's even a tutorial how to on the site: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

  4. That changing a blog address feature is deactivated while Staff work on it. If you have posted the error message you received above then I would not have replied as I did. The notices tells you to try agin in a few days and that's what you must do.
