    I already purchased domain mapping for an old blog name, but I deleted that blog completely and started a new one with a new with a new URL. Now I want my .com address mapped to my new blog, but when I changed my nameservers for my .com address it still directs it to my old blog. I’ve been searching for a while now and can’t find any specific answers for this. Can someone please help?

    Thanks.

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

    What is the old blog URL? What is the custom domain? What is the URL of the blog you want it mapped to? Did you buy the domain mapping upgrade for that blog?

    I’ve found a couple other threads addressing this problem and it seems like WordPress staff need to get involved. I’d love it if someone could help.

    Thanks so much!

    Sorry, raincoaster. I hadn’t refreshed this thread before I wrote that comment.

    I bought the domain mapping for adamklassenmusic.wordpress.com. The custom domain is adamklassen.com. Then I deleted adamklassenmusic and built listentoadamklassen.wordpress.com. I tried to map the domain to the new blog, but it won’t let me saying “This domain has already been mapped to a WordPress.com blog.”

    But I deleted the blog it was mapped to, so I’m not sure where to go from here.

    How long does it usually take for staff to reply? It’s been 2 days.

    Hey raincoaster, how long does it usually take for them to respond? It’s been over 4 days. Should I try starting a new thread?

    Staring a new thread will not help you. Staff deal with threads that have the earliest dates first and move forward. See here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/tags/modlook and scroll down to see the number of pages full of threads that Staff have waiting for their attention.

    Okay. No problem. I just didn’t know what the process was. Thanks for the reply.
