    Thanks 1tess…. Another question for staff. Is there an email you can provide me with to contact you as we move the other regional blogs over instead of posting in the forums one by one?




    The only Jetpack blog on your account is, is that what you want to transfer the followers to?


    Ugh, good catch. I don’t want to have it under my account so we have been setting up the Jetpack under the user christengentile which is using an email that multiple people have access to. That is where we would want to sync all the users.

    I will comment this thread from that handle.


    Please move to this account.



    Ok, there are quite a few Jetpack blogs under that account. Specifically, which blog did you want them transferred to?


    Nota Bene (with no country name after it) would be the one.

    Thanks for your help!



    We only have Jetpack blogs listed by domain, not name. What is the URL of the blog to move them to?


    It will be either or

    It has domain mapping, whichever one is showing up for you between those two would work.



    Perfect, I have transferred your followers as requested.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!


    Thank you, I really appreciate your help!



    You’re welcome!


    Hi Macmanx,

    Wondering if you can help me out with their other major blog can you move the followers from:


    Can you move it to the Christen Gentile account as well.




    I can’t move the Jetpack blog to another account.

    Instead, disconnect it from the Jetpack section of the blog’s Dashboard (hover over the “Connected to” button to reveal a Disconnect button), then reconnect it to the desired account.

    When that’s done, let me know, and I should be able to transfer your followers.


    Sorry, I don’t need the blog moved, just the followers.

    I didn’t explain it correctly. Sorry about that.




    Oh, ok. :)

    I only see under your account. Is RU connected to a different account? If so, what is the username?


    RU is connected under the Christen Gentile account.



    What’s the username on the account? We don’t keep track of accounts by full name.
