Moving users from WordPress.com site to sefl-hosted WordPress.com site

  1. I moved to a self-hosted site and have had trouble moving over the users who were signed up to receive new post notifications via email. I tried the Follow and Subscribe2 plugins but am having issues with people not receiving the emails, etc.

    I saw another support forum post about this topic where you suggested they install Jetpack and then you could move their users over for them:
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/moving-subscribers-from-my-wordpresscom-to-self-hosted-wordpressorg-blog?replies=4

    I have installed Jetpack on my url and activated it. I would appreciate it if my users could be moved over also so that I could start using the plugin.

    The blog I need help with is shiftphiladelphia.com.

  2. I'll tag this for staff attention so they can move them over for you.

  3. Thank you so much. I appreciate the quick response!

  4. Please verify which blogs you are moving subscribers from and to.

  5. actually I think the wordpress.com url was shiftphiladelphiadotcom.wordpress.com the current url is shiftphiladelphia.com

  6. I have moved your subscribers as requested.

    There are over 500, so the transfer may take a few hours.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions!

  7. Would i be able to get help with this as well? I would like to move all my wordpress.com followers over to wordpress.org blog

    strawberricurls.wordpress.com > strawberricurls.com

  8. Have you installed and activated Jetpack?

  9. Yes. You guys moved my blog over. I paid for the service for my blog to be moved but my subscribers and wordpress.com subscribers werent moved

  10. I have moved your subscribers as requested.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

  11. Thanks macmanx!

  12. Where can i find them though? My number of subbies hasn't changed. Also, how do i export the list? I have attached a link to the area i am referring too just so we are on the same page

  13. annapapalia, you're welcome!

    gelizzy88, they're listed via the Blog link right where your circle is. The list cannot be exported.

  14. HI Macmanx,
    Would you be able to do the same for me? I'd really appreciate it. I've also installed the plugin but my subscribers have not migrated.
    it's http://www.barbarajoybeatus.com (both sites) but one was wordpress and the new one is a self-hosted site.
    thanks so much!

  15. I have moved your subscribers as requested.

    Hello macmanx,
    I recently changed from fairyhealthylife.wordpress.com to http://www.fairyhealthylife.com, I am really sorry to bother you but do you think you could help me transfer my subscribers as well?

    I hope you can help,
    Thanks

    Yes, I have activated the JetPack plugin.

    Is there a way I can make the transfer with the JetPack plugin?

  25. You cannot do this. Staff can do this and now you have activated the JetPack plyiging I'll flag this thread for their attention.

  26. Hi @fairyhealthylife,

    I've gone ahead and migrated your subscriptions from fairyhealthylife.wordpress.com to the Jetpack-enabled site at fairyhealthylife.com

    Hope that helps and please let us know if there's anything else we can do
