    I use Network Solutions and purchased the mapping upgrade but seem to have hit a roadblock.

    I used to have my Tumblr page mapped to bminusblogs.com but now want it to go to the WordPress page.

    I added the NS1, NS2 names to the DNS records but don’t think it was done properly or in the right section?

    In short – looking to switch the mapping so my domain name points to my WordPress page.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

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

    Yes, I even used the Network Solutions specific ones.

    It looks like you did the domain mapping part recently (less than 72 hours ago) however it does not look like you changed your name servers to point to WordPress.COM –

    once all the changes are made it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet

    Well the blank boxes were examples, I put the NS1 & NS2 in boxes above those. Where do I put the point to WordPress.com?

    You change the name servers at your Registrar

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    Sorry, I’m terrible with this stuff. Do those go in these boxes?

    After I click manage domain names, I don’t have those same options.

    Then my only suggestion is to ask over at Network Solutions for help changing the name servers – they should have a help forum over there – I have never dealt with them
