    I set up a blog through wordpress yesterday, and today set up another one. I want site2 to map to site1 but seem to have set it up incorrectly. How do I change it so that whenever I go to site 2 I am automatically taken to site 1?

    Thank you, I am a newbie and trying to figure all this out!

    The blog I need help with is kidsartnj.com.

    Sure! Site 1 (that I wish to be the main site) is hellokidsart.com.

    Site 2 (that I want to point to hellokidsart.com) is kidsartnj.com.

    Thank you!

    We’ll need specific URLs.

    Specifically, which WordPress.com blog URL do you want assigned to which domain?

    My main domain is http://hellokidsart.wordpress.com (http://hellokidsart.com/).

    I would like the secondary domain http://kidsartnj.wordpress.com/ (http://kidsartnj.com/) assigned to the main domain.

    This is day 2 of wordpress for me and I appreciate your patience – there is a lot to learn here.

    I have moved kidsartnj.com to hellokidsart.wordpress.com as requested.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

    sorry to be a bother, but I think they are switched – it seems that hellokids art points to kidsartnj, rather than vice versa. I want hellokidsart to be the main blog that is updated, and the other sites point to. thank you.

    http://kidsartnj.com/ is attached to hellokidsart.wordpress.com, which is what you requested earlier.

    Specifically, which domains would you like attached to which WordPress.com blogs?

    Yes they are attached, and thank you for that.

    My question is actually about the url displayed – is there a way to have it be http://hellokidsart.com rather than http://kidsartnj.com/ ?

    Yes, you can set the primary domain via Store -> Domains in your blog’s Dashboard.
