    Hi everyone,
    I'm migrating my blog from zoedanslesetoiles.wordpress.com to zoedanslesetoiles.com (self hosted wp)
    I would like to transfer my wp.com followers to my self hosted blog

    I've seen in other threads that I need staff help to achieve this.

    Could someone help me please?

    Many thanks :)

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

  2. Yoi install the JetPack plugin on your WordPress.org install and you activate it. Then you return to this thread and provide Staff with both URLs, which you have already done (thanks). Staff do the transfer for you.

    I don't see any followers for zoedanslesetoiles.com
    Is it normal? Does the transfer take time to apply?

    Thanks

  10. It might, I'd give it about 24 hours to finish.

    @Macmanx Hello, seems like the tranfer failed: zoedanslesetoiles.com doesn't have any followers.
    Could you please give it another try?

    Former blogs with the 9 WordPress.com Followers:
    zoedanslesetoiles.wordpress.com

    New blog to transfer the followers to:
    zoedanslestoiles.com

    Thanks a ton :)

  12. Only email followers are transferred. WordPress.com Reader followers are not transferred as the Reader does not yet support non-WordPress.com blogs.

  13. Hello

    @Macmanx "the Reader does not yet support non-WordPress.com blogs"
    ..is there a chance that it will in the future..for self hosted wordpress blogs?
    thanks

  14. It is possible, at which point you could try transferring subscribers again, but we don't have any plans at this time.

    Can you transfer my followers, too?

    Downinbelize.com
    To
    Downinadventures.com

    Thanks!

  16. I have transferred your subscribers as requested.

  17. macmanx,

    Will you please transfer my wordpress.com email subscribers to my wordpress.org site?

    Both URLs are ohiobassblog.com

    Thank you!!!

  18. You have no set your domain on your self-hosted blog. It's still listed under your host's generic IP.

    Once you have the domain set, you'll need to deactivate, then reconnect Jetpack. Then, let us know, and we'll move your subscribers.

  19. Hi, I had a free wordpress.com blog which I have recently transferred over to a new hosting space. The domain name is the same as I used a purchased domain for the free wordpress.com blog. I need to know how to transfer over my followers (I have installed jetpack). Is there also a way of transferring over the 'likes' I received on posts?

    Thanks for your help, the blog is http://www.foundbysarah.com

  20. I have transferred your subscribers as requested.

  21. Wow that was fast, thanks! Do you know if there's any way to trasfer over 'likes'?

  22. No, Likes are currently a WordPress.com-only feature.
