    The majority of your followers are from Publicize connections – Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Those are your followers from those services, so we cannot transfer them (as we have no control over those platforms). When you hook up your new blog to those services, all of those followers will again see your posts.


    Thank you again! 1 last question for you then I cannot connect the new blog to my social networks I just get An error message when I try could you possibly tell me how to get past this please? This is the message that appears

    The requested URL /wp-admin/options-general.php was not found on this server.
