    I’m also eager for this to start working again. It’s not a major deal right now but I would like to change the name. I look forward to updates on the progress.

    Hi,

    I have just read over all of the posts here. I can guess that this feature may be up and running by the end of this week, but I have to say that the information given is poor.

    The original message should contain an estimated date (better than ‘a few days’) and if this is not available, some sort of explanation should be provided as to why the service is not available.

    If staff are improving the service, why couldn’t we just have the old service until the replacement was ready?

    I think if I knew what was happening, I would be much happier to wait (even if I didn’t agree). Modern businesses try to be transparent, and its transparency that we need here.

    While it’s true that we cannot use a function that has been temporarily disabled while Staff work on it and is not available to us, there is an alternative that you can use immediately. The good news is you can purchase your own domain name and domain mapping upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ Then it does matter what the underlying .wordpress.com sub-domain URL is that you are mapping from to your new domain.

    irresponsible service
    I hope this is not a marketing strategy to promote domain purchase

    I’m signing up as well to see when this gets corrected. Correct me if I’m wrong but I would use this feature when I want to change the URL of a WordPress blog but not to a custom domain name, correct?

    I am in the same boat! Annoyed that the message says it’ll be fixed in a few days. Just want to change my blog’s name and address – pretty please!

    This weekend I got tired of waiting and exported all posts and comments from my blog, created a new one with the name I wanted and imported everything to that instead. That was pretty quick and easy, the only drawback was that I had to configure everything related to the blog again (theme, language, date format, etc).

    It is still not working. I would like it to work soon.

    I ended up creating a new blog, but I’m hesitant to post in it because I’d rather not invest time working on a new one if the name changing feature is re-enabled soon.

    Seriously, this “a few days” business is ridiculous. Clearly, the WordPress staff needs to get a bit better with their words. I love this service, but would it take that much effort to update us with a ballpark figure?
