Renamed blog issue

  1. I recently changed the name of my blog, so the URL changed from macabre23.wordpress.com to mirahge.wordpress.com, it's all working well but if people click my username, on comments for example or somewhere I've posted, it redirects them to my old blog, which is now deleted, instead of the new one.

    I changed it sometime yesterday, I'm not sure if there's some sort of waiting process or if this is just a bug?
    I've looked through all the options but can't seem to find anything irregular, help would be appreciated. :)

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

  2. Hi, you have to change it yourself...

    Dashboard > Personal Settings > Choose which blog you want as Primary > then scroll down to Account Details > update URL to new blog > Save Changes

  3. Hi, thanks for replying! :)

    I've tried all that and since my old blog is deleted I only have one option for primary anyway, and I've changed the URL, so I'm not sure what the issue is.
    Here, for example, clicking my name will lead to my new blog, but in comments on other blogs/my own it will lead to my old blog. :(

    Thanks for the help anyway!

  4. I don't think the changes to the URL linked to your name is retroactive. When you make new comments the new link will be attached.

  5. Ah thank you, you're right! :)

    Finally some peace of mind. T_T

  6. You be welcome
