Transfer Email Subscribers

  1. I am moving a website from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org and would like to transfer my email subscribers over. Can you help me with this? The website for both the free and the new self-hosted is http://www.girlfriendscoffeehour.com.

    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is girlfriendscoffeehour.com.

  2. Staff can can move your email subscribers only. Followers using the WordPress.com Reader cannot be transferred because there is no WordPress.org Reader or in fact a community with shared in-house features like there is here at WordPress.com. WordPress.org installs are stand alone islands.

    What's required is:
    installation and activation of the JetPack plugin;
    posting both URLs ie. the underlying .wordpress.com URL and the domain URL into this forum thread;
    tagging the thread with modlook in the sidebar;
    subscribing to the thread so you are notified when Staff make the transfer.

  3. I have activated Jetpack on my self-hosted site.

    Free wordpress URL: girlfriendscoffeehour.wordpress.com
    Self-hosted URL: girlfriendscoffeehour.com

    Tagged with modlook.

    Thank you.

  4. You're welcome and Happy New Year!

  5. I'll be glad to transfer your email subscribers for you. First we'll just need the owner of girlfriendscoffeehour.wordpress.com to log in and add a message to this thread giving us permission to do that.
    Thanks.

  6. You have my permission to transfer.

    Christi Wilson
    Owner of GirlfriendsCoffeeHour.com

  7. Your email subscribers have been transferred as requested. Good luck with your new site!

  8. Will you please transfer my email subscribers from my word press hosted site to my new self hosted site?

    bonniecribbs.wordpress.com
    bonniecribbs.com

    Thanks!

  9. Hi bonniecribbs - could you please start a new thread and add the word modlook in the Tags section in the right column so Staff will respond. Also - I recommend that you first change your Jetpack-connected domain from 69.195.124.85/~bonniecr/ to bonniecribbs.com or www.bonniecribbs.com before we do the transfer to avoid many issues later. Thanks!
