Using My Private Domain

  1. I have a private domain. It is pointed to my WordPress Blog address successfully. My problem is that the dashboard for the site to which my domain points is not "live". I have to go to the old site at ....wordpress.com to access a "live" dashboard. Surely, this isn't proper. Can someone help? I have tried to contact the "office" about this but all those "happiness engineers" are off getting happy.

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

  2. What is the private custom domain name you have the question about?

    Did you map the domain name to your blog here?

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    If you have my-name.com mapped to my-name.wordpress.com you will always add content and edit the site at my-name.wordpress.com - the original Dashboard - your visitors will see my-name.com

    That is the way domain mapping works

  3. I have just now tried three times to ask exactly the same question - but instead of my question appearing, it says 'this topic has been closed. I don't know what I did wrong.

    So, thanks for the question and the reply. I now understand why I did not have access to the new .org name, but still have access to the old wordpress.com name. I can't see any advice about this in the Support pages.
