Global "search & replace" for links
Please do not tinker with blog titles and URLs. Leave them be. When you purchase a domain and domain mapping the domain name change takes up to 72 hours to propagate throughout the internet. It’s usually shorter but it can be longer. We have no control over each location and when they choose to flush their DNS cache.
Purchasing domain mapping means the root wordpress.com blog URLs will automatically redirect to the domain URLs. Wherever those original URLs are clicked the software will redirect to the domain URLs automatically.
Also note that on the Admin side of your blog you will see original URLs in your top browser bar — this is normal.
Hope this helps. :)
I didn’t tinker – simply because I have too many links to tinker with and me being me, if I changed one, I would HAVE to change them all!
I’d still like to be able to chnge them though, redirect or no redirect. That is just me.
You know, my daughter suggested a domain when I actually started this and I wish now I had done it back then!
There is no global search and replace and interfering with the redirection of URLs can have negative consequences. I chose to simply wait. :)
Listen to TT. It’s a really, REALLY bad idea.
*sigh* blogging software and Google do not cater to those of us with mild tendancies toward perfection.
No, they really don’t. It’s much more about laying it out quickly and tagging correctly. You can update the contents of a post or page, but don’t ever tinker with the URL. I’ve learned the hard way.
