Want to attach my domain name to new WordPress site . . .

  2. Hi there.

    Can you clarify what you want to do?

    Right now, any traffic going to "" is being redirected to "". Please let me know what site you want to use instead of your site.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  3. So here's the challenge: I've switched to, which is another WordPress blog. The people at ChicagoNow tell me I can't make (or the WordPress version of that) refer to; also that I can't transfer my archives from to Is this really true? I've posted a notice at, "go to this new address" and the "archives" button on the new site connects back to we manage to make ChicagoNow connect to, will I lose everything I've written for the past 5 years? If so, it's certainly not worth it--I'll just let people get used to the new name--but I'd prefer to have my name connected to ChicagoNow's network of readers. Am I asking for the moon? Thanks for any help you can give.

    Yes, you can transfer your archives from one blog to another; I don't know why they'd say you can't, unless the actual owner of doesn't want your archives on their site. What you do is simply Export your content from the site and Import it into the other one.

    If they don't want that, then they can simply put a link on that goes to your site and call it "archives" or whatever.
