    Changed my wordpress. com blog address with no problem. Then attempted redirect procedure and was told “You cannot redirect a URL to itself.”

    How do I redirect from my old blog address to the new?
    Blog url:

    The blog I need help with is



    What are the URLs of th blogs involved here please?
    Did you purchase a site redirect upgrade?

    7. The final option presented on this screen allows you to discard your current address. This option will permanently disable the address and you will not be able to reuse it. Only select this option if you are sure you will not use the address again. If you want to redirect traffic to the new blog, you can keep the address and purchase the Site Redirect upgrade.

    Went to Site Redirect but it is only showing this option:

    “Have you decided to take your site and host it yourself? Have you recently changed your blog address? If you don’t want to lose the traffic to your
    address, the Site Redirect upgrade will forward all traffic to your new location.

    To begin your Site Redirect upgrade purchase, enter the URL below to which you want your
    blog traffic to redirect.”

    Does this mean that my OLD address has been deleted?

    So confused….



    Yes, when you made the change, you selected to delete

    Per the warnings, deleted blogs cannot be re-used or restored, so you won’t be able to add a Site Redirect upgrade for this.
