Changing the URL

    I am trying to change the url to electricreel.ca rather than the .wordpress. I checked the blog info but right off the bat I found a problem. In General settings there is no Option to change the wordpress url or the site address. I don’t know why. When I did some research I discovered that it might have to do with a MULISITE problem. I didn’t set up a multisite, but perhaps thats the issue. Other users suggested going to the wp-config and eliminating the other sites that might be connected.

    Can you help with this, it is inexorably frustrating to deal with.

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

    Have you read the relevant support documentation for purchasing a domain mapping upgrade? http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    Before Upgrading – Important Notes
    WordPress.com supports registering domains with the extensions .com, .org, .net, or .me. You can still map domains with other extensions to your blog – you just have to register them with another registrar and then map them to your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/register-domain/#before-upgrading-important-notes

    After your have purchased your.ca domain name from another registrar you can then follow these instructions to want to map that domain to your blog. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    It worked! Thank you. Yes I had already set everything up with the godaddy account, however I had not added the domain. Thank you!
