Re-gaining control over my previous wordpress domain.

  1. Hi folks.

    Sometime ago I have registered wordpress.com account. I have registered AndrzejL.wordpress.com - free account with free blog.

    Now after a while I have decided that I won't need the blog and removed it. So I got left with AndrzejL account on the WordPress.com without a blog.

    After that I have decided that I might actually use the blog.. so as AndrzejL I have registered another free blog - sparewotw.wordpress.com - all is peachy - well almost.

    Now whenever I comment people get my AndrzejL avatar and they can click on it and they are being taken to http://andrzejl.wordpress.com where they are being told - user deleted their blog.

    Is there a chance that I could have that changed? Well is there a chance that http://andrzejl.wordpress.com would redirect them to http://sparewotw.wordpress.com where my blog lives?

    Thanks in advance for any help provided.

    Regards.

    Andy

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

  2. I'm sorry but once a blog has been deleted that's not possible.

  3. Boomer... Ok how about changing the blog's link under my "AndrzejL" so instead of andrzejl.wordpress.com it leads to sparewotw.wordpress.com so the folks actually go to my account instead of andrzejl.wordpress.com?

    Even here in the posts You can see my avatar and a "AndrzejL" link below... See where it takes You - can this be changed to my new addy?

    Regards.

  4. I'm sorry but that's not possible because the blog has been deleted. If you had not deleted it then you could have purchased a site redirect upgrade > Site Redirect upgrade

    Even here in the posts You can see my avatar and a "AndrzejL" link below... See where it takes You - can this be changed to my new addy?

    Provided sparewotw.wordpress.com is registered under the same username account your can change the primary blog linked to your username. This is not retroactive.

    Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  5. Spot on. Great job - all sorted.

    Thanks a lot.
