Merging CMS WordPress and WordPress Blog

  1. I created a regular WordPress.com blog to start blogging. I have since registered a domain name with another site, and chose to use the WordPress CMS for a build. When I log into WordPress.com my original blog and my new web page both appear in the top right hand corner drop-down. When I click on my web page account I'm taken to my pages WordPress Dashboard, just liked I were to directly sign in using the WordPress's CMS Admin Log-in.

    However, my WordPress.com blog doesn't show on my WordPress CMS Dashboard. Furthermore, while in the 'Users' section where I can edit my WordPress CMS admin profile I attempt to 'log in' with WordPress to connect my account and get a 404 error. I am signed into WordPress.com under this very account, and it still doesn't work. I've cleared browser caches and retried.

    I'm assuming my WebPage has it's own log-in information on the WordPress.com website?

    Would I be able to merge the 2 accounts so if I blog from my WebPage it will post to my WordPress.com blog, and visa-versa? Or do I even need my original WordPress.com blog at all anymore?

    I hope this makes sense, obviously, I'm new at this. Might have to purchase some books soon :). Any information would help.

    The blog I need help with is robology13sb.wordpress.com.

  2. What are both URLs involved here please?

    I'll tag this thread for Staff to assist with sorting this. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. You have created one site which is hosted on WordPress.com, and another site that is hosted at Bluehost, and running the WordPress software available from WordPress.org.

    Because you have connected your Bluehost site to Jetpack, it is showing up in your list of blogs on WordPress.com. You cannot use your WordPress.com credentials by default to log into your self-hosted account, but if you enable Single Sign On through Jetpack, you will be able to log into both sites using your WordPress.com credentials.

    Please note that while you can log into both sites this way, we at WordPress.com have no access to the files or the Dashboard of your self-hosted site.
