Help with dashboard problem on wordpress.com to wordpress.org

  1. I signed up for a wordpress.com blog and have since decided to switch to a wordpress.org blog that is hosted at godaddy. I want to make blog more custom by uploading templates, plugins etc. I have everything set up correctly with go daddy but when I log in to the dashboard it seems to take me to the old wordpress.com dashboard where I don't have all the features available that I keep seeing on tutorial/videos for wordpress.org. I hope that is clear because I am so confused!

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. You need to log into the NEW blog, not the old one. There is no connection between your new self-hosted blog and wordpress.COM.

    When you set up your new wordpress installation, you were given a username and password. You have to log into the new blog at http://mynewblog.com/wp-login.php

  4. Did you mistakenly set up domain forwarding to your wordpress.com blog?
