Searching new domain blog

    Hi,

    I recently registered my blog to redirect/remap to a new domain: saffronandhoney.com. I registered all of this through WordPress. Now I find that unless I keep my wordpress site as my primary domain (instead of the new saffronandhoney.com), I can't search any of the past posts through the 'search wordpress.com' function.

    Is this normal/has anyone else experienced this and is there a way around this so that my new domain is searchable?

    Thanks for your help!

    The blog I need help with is saffronandhoney.wordpress.com.

  2. I do not know the answer to your question. Either any Volunteer or Staff will have to answer it.

    Here is some feedback:
    (1) I cannot even tell which theme you are using. We are NOT allowed to remove the web designer link or the blog a wordpress.com link from the footer of free hosted wordpress.com blogs and we Volunteers have been asked to report any blogs to Staff where this has been done. Please be sure those links do display on the footer of the blog so I do not have to report your blog.

    (2) I am using the most common screen resolution size which is 1024×768 and when clicking into your blog I am greeted with a horizontal scroll bar. Are you aware that people on widescreen (if you are talking about big, wide monitors) are actually quite rare.
    1024x768 -- 40.28%
    1280x1024 -- 16.97%
    1280x800 -- 16.89%
    1440x900 -- 7.71%
    1680x1050 -- 4.28%
    800x600 -- 4.01%

    That means over 78% of people are on resolutions of 1280px widthor less. So you may want to take that into consideration.

    Thanks for trying to help - I'll wait for someone to respond to this question.

    To your other points: I am using the Shelf premium theme and it says so on the footer on my blog. And yes, it scrolls horizontally.

  4. I'm using Firefox 3.6.16. and I honestly cannot see ANY links at all in the footer of the blog linked to your username at all. I have clicked in 4 times now to confirm that. Setting that aside. Here's the link you can use to contact Staff directly > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
