I purchased a custom domain a few weeks ago. When I type in the URL, it redirects to my wordpress URL (matthewsm1th.com redirects to http://matthewsm1th.wordpress.com). Is this the way it's supposed to work? I thought that the shorter, custom URL would be the one used.
A possibly related issue: on my WordPress dashboard, I frequently get a message that says "Tip: You’re one step away from using matthewsm1th.com as your blog address. Click here to activate matthewsm1th.com." I click the link, but the page simply refreshes (often with the same tip written at the top).
The blog I need help with is matthewsm1th.wordpress.com.
