I mapped my domain to the wrong blog, can I swap it?

  1. Hi there. I have two wordpress blogs:
    toproomproductions.wordpress.com and toproomweddingvideos.wordpress.com and I have the domain 'toproomproductions.co.uk' and wanted to map that to 'toproomproductions.wordpress.com but I accidentally mapped it to 'toproomweddingvideos.wordpress.com' - Is there a simple way for me to swap it to the intended blog.

    I was going to delete domain and reattach it to the intended one but it said that I would have to wait 60 days before I was able to remap it.

    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

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

  2. Write staff an email. Support just might be able to help you...

  3. the 60 day wait is to move the domain name registration to another registrar - you can change the mapping of your domain name to as many different base sites / bogs as you want (a domain name can only be mapped to one base blog at a time) - when I was doing some testing I mapped a domain that was only a week old 4 different times in about a week (would have been faster but it takes a while for the changes to reach the far corners of the internet.)

    You could change the mapping yourself but would need to pay a second time - if you get the staff to help should save you a few dollars - the staff here are quite helpful (a bit overworked but very helpful).

  4. Thanks guys. I've emailed the support team.

    @auxclass, are you saying that if I 'delete' the domain from the blog then I can simply add it to my other blog straight away?!
    Before I confirm the delet it says: "You will have to purchase the domain mapping upgrade to map this domain to your blog again."
    I don't want to have to pay the $12 again to do this.

    Thanks again for the help though guys.

  5. Yes you can change it straight away - but yes the extra $ 12- then a hassle for the refund (can't remember the exact terms for mapping refunds) - but the staff has moved the domain mapping for others with no extra charges - this thread has also been flagged for staff attention and the staff does monitor the forums -

    If it was me - I would probably put a Post on the top of the front page with a note sending people to the correct site then wait for the staff to adjust the mapping -
