    As I understand it WordPress does not do redirects. There used to be an FAQ that gave a trick that could be used with the paid domain mapping upgrade, but I know several people who tried it and could not get it to work. If you already have domain mapping it might be worth a try.

    Personally when I went self-hosted I simply put a last post up on my .COM blog explaining I had moved and listing the link. Within about a month, the traffic on my .COM blog had dropped to virtually zero so I then made it private.

    Those instructions should work. If not, let us know.

    do you mean something like this?

    is it possible to add a 302 to the template or in a post?

    You cannot add anything to the template, since the core files are unavailable here at WordPress.com. I think your best bet is to put a link in your post stating the new post location. I don’t think you can do post by post 302 redirects.
