    I recently opened a new blog, but it would not let me use my domain name. It is attached to the old/closed blog. How can I recover my old address name without an upgrade?

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

  2. You cannot undelete a blog. Deletion is permanent. However...

    I'll tag this for staff attention so that they can move the domain name over to the new blog. They will need two things:

    1. What is the domain name you want moved.

    2. What is the URL of the blog you want it moved to?

  3. I don't see any registered domains under your account.

    As mentioned above, if you'd please tell us exactly which domain you want to move to which blog, we should be able to help.

    This is the new blog address : http://mmyimagemaker.wordpress.com/

    (You will notice an extra "m" in the new address). I would like to change it to the correct name below.

    myimagemaker

    My domain name is : myimagemaker.com

    Thank you sooo much !

  5. http://myimagemaker.wordpress.com/ is already registered by a different user.

  6. If you are mapping a custom domain name the base WordPress.COM blog domain name does not matter as your visitors will not see the base blog name

  10. imagemak, I haven't sent an email. If you mean the notification of reply to this forum thread, that goes to a donotreply address. All received emails are tossed.

    If you'd like to reply, please do so here so we can help you.

    Hi macmanx. Sorry for the confusion. I didnt notice the return address. The other blog(old/closed) is under the name Ava Scearce( divorced). I own the domain name myimagemaker.com. It can be verified at Go Daddy.

  12. WordPress.com blogs are owned by the users who register them.

    You can map your existing domain to any WordPress.com blog following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Macmanx, I transferred the blog to my new address. Its showing the 404 code.

  21. You have no published posts, they're all in the Trash. Once you publish a post or recover them from the Trash, you'll see them on the front page.

    Alternatively, publish a public page and set that as your front page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

  22. I imported the post after I transferred it to the new bog. When i uploaded the Theme the 404 code was there. I had all post set on private.Everything imported but the Theme would not stick. I put them in the trash to see if it would correct the problem. I still received the 404 code, so I deleted everything to check it. Still received the 404 code. Today I did a second import .and got a notice to wait for confirmation from support. Thank you again macmanx, sorry for all the confusion. Have a great weekend!
