I want my site to be Public, not Private

  1. sebastopoltherapy

    I have the domain successfully pointing to my WordPress blog and my blog says that it is published and public. I've paid for the upgrade that eliminates "wordpress" from my URL. I have not chosen any of the "private" check boxes, but when entering in a browser I get a WordPress screen saying that the owner has marked this "Private." I'm frustrated. Should I see a therapist?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. I've tagged this for staff attention so that they can look into it for you.

  3. Is there the possibility you have two blogs and mapped your domain to the wrong blog?

    NOTE - OK I mis-typed my own site's name above - it should be Mis-spelling is not my problem.

  5. Your URL is really no "www"

    Can you log in and make sure the Privacy is set to Public allow everyone in?

  6. The thing is, if the mapping and such were all right, and was mapped to, then the URL would also reflect that the site was private.

  7. @TSP - good point -

    A bit more research shows your domain name is mapped to - is that what you intended?

  8. The blog is set to private at 'Settings' -> 'Privacy'. As auxclass says, your domain redirects to the 'westcountytheraphy' blog, do you want to point it to instead?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks so much. I think you folks are on to something. I would like to get rid of and thought I had effectively done so by making my primary blog. Can I delete wesatcountytherapy completely without losing any important links or accessibility?

    Many Thanks

  10. DON'T DELETE ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want the content that is at to show up as you will need to have @kardotim move the mapping to from

    Then use westcountry as a test blog or whatever and leave it set to Private - once a domain name is delete here the content and name go away forever even from you.

    Kardotim - Yes, I would like to direct to Will my readers see the name without "wordpress"? -- I could happily delete, but I appreciate auxclass's warning to be careful with deleting.

    Thanks for all the help

  12. After @kardotim or another happiness eng. does their magic your visitors will see - there will not be any "wordpress" in your address - BUT your dashboard will still say when you are logged it

    You be welcome for the help - good luck

  13. I have moved to as requested.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!

  15. You're welcome!

  16. I love it when a plan comes together

    You be welcome!
