Urls for linking to specific pages on blog

    Basically, linking to specific pages doesn’t work when the purchased domain name is used.
    So, when I click on a page or category, after using the username.wordpress.com link first, the url changes to (e.g) username.wordpress.com/photos

    But if I used the purchased name, then regardless of the page I visit, the url stays at username.com and doesn’t change, making it impossible to link people to specific pages.

    Any ideas how to fix this?
    Thanks!

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    There is no blog linked to your WordPress.COM username. It’s unhelpfully linked to a Twitter account!

    Know that we cannot help you at all until you post an active link starting with http:// to the exact blog you are asking about.

    Hey,
    The question isn’t about my blog, it about a friend’s; he just doesn’t know how to navigate the forum, so I’m posting on his behalf.

    I’ll get him to log in later and repost this from his page, if that’d help?

    Sorry but if he needs help then he needs to post here and provide the URL to the exact free hosted WordPress.COM in question.
