Changing the URL

    I am trying to change the url to 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



    Have you read the relevant support documentation for purchasing a domain mapping upgrade?

    Before Upgrading – Important Notes 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.



    After your have purchased domain name from another registrar you can then follow these instructions to want to map that domain to your blog.


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



    Yay! I like happy endings. You’re welcome and best wishes with your blog.
