Previously, I was making a new website called “justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com” I paid wordpress.com and registered a new domain, “Gadgetaroma.com”. The gadgetaroma.com was basically opening the contents of justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com. From that, I was getting a little annoyed because the image address of the pictures was always “justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com/04/08…..”, which just never looked nice and felt to the other users as if I was taking images from some other site.
Today, I deleted the justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com and now, I cannot open gadgetaroma.com!
Thankfully, i had backed up(exported) the contents of the justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com and thus can get gadgetaroma.com back to track once I can see the interface
Someone help me! I paid $15 for gadgetaroma.com and I deleted justgadgetstuff.com and now unable to open gadgetaroma.com
since you saved the content can’t you import it again to your old wordpress blog?
I can do nothing! I’d justgadgetstuff.wordpress.com deleted and wosh! gadgetaroma.com(paid one) is gone too!
you’ll need assistance from support itself, since bloggers don’t have access to backend thing. they will open monday morning. you could think of starting another blog url and placing the content there and mapping your domain there, but right now I don’t know how that would work with your domain currently mapped to a deleted blog. again, support is going to need to help you directly. I really wish I could help you more!
smart thinking of you to back that up, it could be so much worse!
yeah, thankfully, I had exported the contents/structure/format. But, is it funny that even in the mail that i got which confirmed about deleted the blog said this,
You recently clicked the ‘Delete Blog’ link on your blog and filled in a
form on that page.
If you really want to delete your blog, click the link below. You will not
be asked to confirm again so only click this link if you are 100% certain:
If you delete your blog, please consider opening a new WordPress.com blog
some time in the future! But remember your current blog is gone forever.”
It nowheres talks about gadgetaroma.com(!)
/nod to diss
@justgadgetstuff – They are both gone because they were only one. The paid one was the wordpress.com blog under a different name (url). Not a copy. The original. Domain mapping changes the url but does not physically move any content.
That’s why your photos still showed the path to your original blog url. That is where they remained and only the public face, for want of a better term, ever changed with respect to your url.
I agree. You need staff intervention.
Yeah, must get staff help :(
I hope my paid domain is not gone forever :(
Guys, tell me one thing, cannot I directly work over the paid blog?(GadgetAroma.com). Is making a ‘xxxxx.wordpress.com” mandatory?
Domain mapping simply puts a new URL on your existing wordpress.com blog. Your blog is still at wordpress.com.
You can if you wish to get away from that, hire a web host, install the software from wordpress.org and then take the backup that your have from the blog you deleted here and import it at your new web host.
With your own web host and installation, you have a lot more freedom, but you also carry all the responsibility of upgrades, troubleshooting and such. You do it all.
