    Is it possible to move Subscribers from a WordPress.com (hosted by WordPress) to WordPress.org (self hosted) site and if so how do I do it?

    Thanks

    Brandon

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

    You need to install the jetpack Plug-in then request the staff to move your subscribers to your new site – the staff will also need to know the URL where you moved to.

    I will flag this for staff attention to help.

    Hi Auxclass,

    I have installed the Jetpack plug-in. But you are saying there is no way for us to do the transfer.

    Which staff are you referring too, is that wordpress staff and if so how do I contact them?

    Thank you

    Oh cool, Thx Mac!

    Now each of them are going to see the new blog?

    And where do I see the subscribers who were transferred?

    Thx

    Yes, all of the email subscribers will receive the new posts via email.

    You should be able to see a list of them via a link in the lower-left corner of your site stats.

    Good morning Mac,

    I see only 10 transferred over I thought there was 25+ especially I received e-mails just recently of blogs following me.

    I have a question Mac,

    I noticed in WordPress.com blogs would follow and they would receive e-mails of new posts.

    How does that work with WordPress.org because looking at the Wordpess.com console and stats and then looking at Jetpacks site stats they seem different in this aspect.

    I am very new to WordPress.org and just want to make sure I am not setting up things wrong and/or missing something.

    Thanks Mac for your help.

    The WordPress.com Reader only supports WordPress.com blogs, so only your email subscribers were transferred.

    Email subscribers will still receive emails of your posts, and you can get new subscribers by adding the Follow widget to your blog from Appearance -> Widgets in your blog’s Dashboard.

    Hi Mac,

    I tried exporting from ultimatesportstherapy.wordpress.com to Carolynzepf.com (wordpress.org)

    I exported from Ultimatesportstherapy.wordpress.com and then tried to import to carolynzepf.com and I received numerous of failures.

    I was wondering what it could be?

    Unfortunately, we really can’t help with the WordPress.org end of things. I recommend asking at http://wordpress.org/support/

    Hi Mac,

    After the transfer from brandonkrieger.worpdress.com to knssconsulting.com (wordpress.org)

    I have been receiving comment notifications but when I click on “Approve” it is going to my old site http://www.brandonkrieger.wordpress.com vs. coming to knssconsulting.com

    Here is the message below

    That would mean that the pingbacks are being left on your old WordPress.com blog, not the new blog.

    Hi Mac,

    Does this need to be fixed?

    If so how do I fix it?

    Thanks Mac

    Well, it doesn’t necessarily need to be fixed. You have two separate blogs, http://brandonkrieger.wordpress.com/ and http://knssconsulting.com/

    You can redirect your WordPress.com blog to your self-hosted blog with a Site Redirect upgrade, but you will need to change the permalink structure on your self-hosted blog to the “Day and name” structure for the redirect to work properly.
