Problem with comment link to correct URL

  1. I have two WordPress URLs, one of which I'm saving for a future project. I blog at I have another URL,, which I am not using at present.

    The problem is that when I make a comment, and someone clicks on my link, it sends them to, where I presently have no content.

    I have tried to change this in My Profile many times. When I go into My Profile, Personal Settings, Account Details, under Website, I have the correct URL. It even says right next to the box, "Automatically linked when you make comments."

    I've even hidden the juliegoldberg.wordpress site, but it doesn't help. I don't want to permanently delete the site, because 1) I shouldn't have to and 2) I may want to use it in the future.

    Where should I be correcting the information? How can I get this to work?

    Very grateful for any help you can provide.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi. It looks like you are changing it in the right place, but remember: it only works for new comments, not for previous comments you made. (under "Website")

  3. Ah! Thank you. That explains it. Do you know whether past comments would revert to my current setting if I deleted the other blog?

  4. No. As the article I linked to states, that information is stored on the other person's blog. Only they could change whatever URL was linked to your username at the time. Sorry I can't give you better news.

  5. No, that's good news. It tells me that I can stop beating my head against the wall! Thank you very much for your help.

  6. Glad I could help :-)

  8. Now my display name is changed
