    I would really like to change my blog url, but if I do so, will all my links break? All the menu links too?

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

    Hi. Links within your own blog will still work (in theory), such as links you make on one of your own blog posts to another blog post, or links in your menus. If all of your links are relative (for example: /2011/01/01/post/ instead of http://__.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/post/)

    However, links coming from other websites (for example, a friend’s blog linking to one of your blog posts) will STOP working unless you buy a site redirect upgrade.

    The sentence above should read:
    “If all your links are relative, you should have no problems at all within your blog.

    So, menu and links say, where in one of my post I link to a page will work? That would be awesome…
