    I recently migrated http://puppeteersofpugetsound.org to http://puppeteersofpugetsound.wordpress.com/ (from WordPress.org to WordPress.com

    How can I ensure that all the subscribers from the .org site got migrated to the .com site? When I look under Dashboard > Users I don’t see anyone. Will everyone need to resubscribe?

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

    Staff can can move your email subscribers only. Followers using the WordPress.com Reader cannot be transferred because there is no WordPress.org Reader or in fact a community with shared in-house features like there is here at WordPress.com.

    What’s required is:
    installation and activation of the JetPack plugin;
    posting both URLs for the underlying .wordpress.com blog and the domain into this forum thread;
    tagging the thread with modlook in the sidebar;
    subscribing to the thread so you are notified when Staff make the transfer.

    Ok Jetpack is installed and connected.
    Need to migrate email subscribers/users from http://puppeteersofpugetsound.org
    to
    http://puppeteersofpugetsound.wordpress.com/
    Hopefully adding “modlook” as a tag is what I was supposed to do next.
    Just waiting for staff to make the transfer.
    Thanks.

    Hi there, unfortunately, I don’t see any Jetpack subscribers for http://puppeteersofpugetsound.org that I could migrate for you.

    Most people migrate subscribers from wp.com to wp.org (and you are migrating in the opposite direction), so the instructions that @timethief posted do not apply in your case — if you only installed Jetpack now, it won’t know about the readers who subscribed using a different plugin or feature.
