I have a question about domain mapping. I did everything right, I think!, by following the FAQ but something isn’t quite right.
I have the domain "agardenapart.com" and when people go to this URL I want them redirected to "wordpress.agardenapart.com," my new blog. So I set up domain mapping, changed my name servers with networksolutions.com to point to the wordpress DNSs, and right now in my Upgrades > Domain section, things look like this:
agardenapart.com Your blog URL
agardenapart.wordpress.com Redirecting to agardenapart.com (Put blog here)
Also, I have nothing on agardenapart.com except a simple web page with the text “A Garden Apart.”
But now, whether I go to agardenapart.com, or whether I go to agardenapart.wordpress.com, I’m taken to this simple web page, not my blog.
What did I do wrong? I want both to point to my wordpress.com blog. Ideally, "wordpress" won't be in the URL at all no matter how you get to the blog.
I've been experimenting with clicking the "Put blog here" link to see if it makes a difference, but maybe these changes take time to propagate, much like a change to the DNS would.
Thanks very much for any advice!
