Linking the right blog to my user name

  1. When people click on my user name, it takes you to a blog I have not yet worked on, instead of the one for Grady. I have it marked as hidden on the dashboard, and I have thegradyreport as my primary blog but it's stll showing the Purebred Cat blog. How do I change this?

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

  2. Dashboard > Users > Personal Settings

    Scroll down to where it says "Primary Blog" and make sure it's the correct one. Then scroll down to "Website" where it says "Automatically linked when you make comments." and make sure that's the correct one.

  3. Thank you, ardpete. That is what I have, but it's still going to the wrong blog.

  4. Do you have just one username? Or do you have more than one username?

    Th blog I see linked to your username is this one http://thegradyreport.wordpress.com/
    The Grady Report

    He means the username on his comments
    http://thegradyreport.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/aw-hell-rolling-in-the-deep/
    The blog that links to the username on the comments page links to the wrong blog.

  7. The change is not retroactive.

  8. I have only one user name, carraig1. And if I click on my name on a post, it takes me to the purebredcats blog. I have tried clearing cookies, and it didn't help. I even tried a different browser.

  9. The change is not retroactive.

  10. I'm not sure what you mean.

  11. Everywhere your username appeared before you changed the blog linked to your username will remain linked to the original blog and that cannot be changed. Your username is now linked to http://thegradyreport.wordpress.com/ and from here on wherever you leave a comment that will be the site linked to it.

  12. Thanks, timethief. Would the previous posts/links go to the right one if I deleted that first blog?
