    Hello:

    I “want to change [my] WordPress.com Blog/Site Address” (thebloggingpath) but “that site already exists” (flynnspaws). Further, “I want to please permanently disable thebloggingpath.wordpress.com”, which as a paid-upgrade (registered domain).

    How can I take advantage of the “WordPress Value Bundle” ($99) under that existing site (flynnspaws) without purchaseing the “site redirect” or changing my “site title” for my current site (thebloggingpath)?

    Thanks.

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

    You can’t do exactly what you’re asking—you may not change the name of one blog into the name of another one that already exists.

    To clarify, what is your end goal? Is it to redirect traffic from thebloggingpath.wordpress.com to flynnspaws.wordpress.com and use a custom domain name on flynnspaws.wordpress.com as your final setup? If so, what domain?

    “You can’t do exactly what you’re asking—you may not change the name of one blog into the name of another one that already exists.”

    I was hoping this would be an idea to allow the implementation of this feature since both “blog addresses” are registered by the same administrator (me, of course).

    What is your end goal?

    1) To redirect traffic from the current site to the existing site and 2) to use a custom domain name on the existing site as my final setup and/or 3) all for “.me”, of course.

    We don’t have any plans to make a new feature like that.

    Here’s what you can do now to reach your end goal:

    1) Setup a new custom domain for flynnspaws.wordpress.com (you can use the value bundle if you’d like)

    2) Setup a site redirect from thebloggingpath.wordpress.com to the new domain from step 1

    Darn! Err, I meant, thanks for letting me know!

    @designsimply I’ll think about your suggestions. At this point, I will change this topic to “resolved” (at least temporarily until your plans might change).
