Hi, I am switching to Bluehost, and I need to transfer my current subscribers over when I make the move. How do I go about doing this?
Here's my site.
The blog I need help with is thesmartcookiecook.com.
Need help? Check out our Support site, then
Install the JetPack Plug-in and do what ever configuration it requires - then post back in the forum that you need the subscribers transfered - the staff will then move the subscribers for you
I can't figure out how to install jetpack. I thought plugins only worked for wordpress.org?
If you are moving to Blue Host for your hosting (moving your blog from WordPress.COM to Blue Host) - you will need to install WordPress.ORG software at Blue Host to run your blog. Then you have the part about moving your content (export from here - import there) (also making the new blog look like you want it - remember all the CSS stuff you did here? - start over at new host) from here to your new host.
yes Plug-ins are only for WordPress.ORG installs.
Am I answering the correct question?
Okay, I'm sorry, I misunderstood you. Yes, I'm moving to Bluehost. I'm not sure how to install jetpack there either though.
Jetpack can be installed a couple of ways - might be bundled with the .ORG software (but some things I saw in the forum says probably not) - from the Dashboard or using FTP - then a bit of configuration - lost you yet? :)
The instructions are over at http://wordpress.org/support/ - if you want to ask questions in the forum there you will need to open a new account since they are related to but not connected with WordPress.COM
.ORG is the keeper of the WordPress software - they don't do hosting
Okay, thank you so much! I've installed JetPack and I'm ready to move subscribers.
You be welcome - someone has already flagged this for the staff to help you
I have transferred your subscribers as requested.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
A few thoughts on your site
Just visited your site and a lot of Posts on the front page - full Posts that made the front page load slowly - in my opinion - much better to use the "More Tag" on the Posts so the whole Post does not need to load - if you still want to have the full Post for the top one or two - then maybe at the #3 Post is start putting in the More Tag for it and in for all the Posts below - that also makes it much easier for new visitors to page down and see what each Post is about - then they can click on and view the ones that are most interesting
Yes, I've gone back and forth about that in the past, and I think it is something I will implement once my new site is officially up. Thank you for the suggestion!
Where can I find the subscribers on the new site?
They'll be listed near the bottom-left corner of Jetpack -> Site Stats in your blog's Dashboard.
