two names for one blog

  1. Hi, Just wondered if it's possible to have two names leading to the same blog? For example could 'lovecrear.wordpress.com' and 'anothername. wordpress.com' both lead to the same place?
    Thanks!
    Alice

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

  2. There is only one URL for any wordpress.com blog. You can change the blog title if you wish at any time here > Settings > General but changing that blog title will not change the URL for the blog in question.

    In the examples you use above clicking this URL http://lovecrear.wordpress.com cannot ever lead to http://anothername.wordpress.com and clicking this URL http://anothername.wordpress.com cannot ever lead to http://lovecrear.wordpress.com. However, if you wish visitors to click a link in the sidebar of one blog and arrive in the other blog then all you have to do is put the URLs of the opposite blog into a text widget and place it in the sidebars of the other blog, and visa versa.

    If what you want to do is purchase a domain name and domain mapping please see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/

    If what you want to do is move content from one wordpress.com blog to another wordpress.com blog then please see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

    Would you please tell us exactly what it is that you want to achieve and why? If you do that then we may be able to come up with a way to achieve it.

  3. Thanks that actually pretty much answers my question. I think I was thinking of when people have two domain names that link to the same website. Thanks for your help!

  4. G'Day Laura,
    You're welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)
