I just bought a domain through wordpress. Maybe it just takes time and I'm not waiting long enough but how long does it take for the blog to show up on the new domain? I searched the forums and faq but couldn't find an answer... Just wanted to make sure I'm not forgetting a step. Thanks in advance...

how long for domain to show up?
You need to make sure you've set the redirection in your dashboard, but even if you've done that, it can take a little while to show in some cases.
I wouldn't worry about it unless it's been more than 72 hours. Do you have a link to the blog so we can check as well?
I don't know why nothing showed up on the forum search. It's a common question. It does sometimes take a few days, particularly over the weekend.
It depends on where you registered it as well. Smaller registrars seem to take longer to provagate through and I noticed that domains that are not .com also take longer.
