Trying to import from .org to .com

  1. I already have the zombiesandrobots.wordpress.com blog, and I exported my zombiesandrobots.net. But when I try to go to the tools import on the .com site it redirects me to my .net dashboard. What am I doing wrong?

    The blog I need help with is www.zombiesandrobots.net.

  2. To clarify, when you click the link below, can you get to the dashboard of your WordPress.com site?

    https://zombiesandrobots.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    or do you get automatically redirected at that point as well?

    Did you have your .net site connected to WordPress.com via JetPack?

    This seems like a strange problem, so I'm just trying to figure out what's in play.

  3. Actually, when I click that link, it tells me that I don't have privileges to access, and to contact the Admin.

  4. When I click my name up in the corner, and select, manage my blogs. It shows zombiesandrobots.net and lists the option to go to the dashboard and that's when I end up right to where I always go to post.

  5. And yes, it is connected via Jetpack

  6. That probably means you are logged into the wrong account. Do you have another WordPress account associated with a different email address?

  7. Not that I know. I did an Account recovery. I'll see if they can find something.

  8. That should help. If the new site doesn't show up on your "sites" page it's definitely connected to a different username. If you have comment notifications turned on, you could also go to the .com site and leave a comment. Whichever email address gets the comment is the one connected to that account.

  9. That's a good idea. I did that. I am not sure if I have any features turned on there as I never used it. (You can tell that from looking at it). I started using WordPress straight from getting my domain and kinda looks like I screwed things up along the way. I really only use one email address so I'll have to go digging to see if it went to some past email. :(

  11. Ok so I didn't get an email anywhere that I could access that said that I had a comment. I only got the "Hey do you want to subscribe to comments?" email back from my own self.

    I haven't heard back on my Account Recovery either.

  12. Account Recovery can take awhile--sorry about that.

    Are you planning to map your existing domain, zombiesandrobots.net, to your WordPress.com site once you get everything moved over?

    If that's the plan, the shortest path to getting things all set up would be to go to https://wordpress.com/sites and click the blue button on the left to create a new, empty site. Then you could import your content to the new site, get it all set up and use the domain mapping upgrade to point your exiting domain to the new site.

    You wouldn't be able to use the name https://zombiesandrobots.wordpress.com but since you would map your existing domain, the .wordpress.com domain doesn't matter so much.

    Let me know if that works for you, or if you have any trouble following the steps.

  13. Ultimately my goal is to cancel my domain, but I want to keep my blog going. I just don't have the time/energy/money to keep paying for something that I am not making any money off of.

    So I downloaded my posts from the zombiesandrobots.net dashboard, and I wanted to hopefully import them to the https://zombiesandrobots.wordpress.com (if I could ever figure out how to login. :( )

  14. Gotcha. Well, then. That idea obviously won't work. Sorry.

    Account recovery really is your best bet I'm afraid.

    Wish I had better news.
