Changing username, blog address and auto-redirection

  1. Hello,

    I am wanting to change my username from ambergobers to amberlouthan and thus, changing the blogs address.

    The result gives you several options but none of them suggest that the old page will redirect to the new blog because we don't have access to the meta tags nor do we have access to the code (to insert a php redirect).

    If I choose:
    "Change ambergobers.wordpress.com to match my new username and discard the old address"

    ... will the old address forward to the new address?

    If I choose:
    "Change ambergobers.wordpress.com to match my new username and create an empty blog with the old address"

    ... how can I put in an auto-redirect script/meta refresh/whatever into the old address to redirect everyone to the new address?

    The blog I need help with is ambergobers.wordpress.com.

  2. ... will the old address forward to the new address?

    Not unless you buy a site redirect upgrade for the old address.
