Clicking my user name takes readers to the wrong address

  1. I guest posted on someone's blog. When readers click my name in the comments, it takes them to a page that tells them the blog doesn't exist. The domain does not match what is showing in my dashboard.

    I'm not sure where the disconnect is. The web address that shows on my dashboard is http://www.roadkillwithbill.wordpress.com.

    Thanks for any insight.

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

  2. Here’s how to link your username to your primary blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings
    Scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    This is change is not retroactive. After you change it every time if we click your username and your primary blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on any blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  3. Your instructions were clear and easy to follow, and they fixed the problem. Thanks for your time!

  4. Hooray! I'm happy to hear that. Best wishes.
