wp.me shortlink not resolving?

    Who do you call if the wp.me url lands on a “Sorry, we could not resolve that url.” page?

    Please don’t say “GhostBusters”, lol!


    Oh, and the particular shortlink that isn’t “working”?




    What post is it supposed to go to?


    My apologies for not watching this topic closer…

    The post/url that the wp.me shortlink is supposed to go to is:



    Hello there,
    I’m guessing you did not read the sticky post at the head of this forum which explains the differences between free blogs from and being hosted by wordpress.COM and software installs from wordpress.ORG. See > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-read-me-first-before-posting?replies=1

    The blog you provided the link to is NOT a wordpress.COM blog and we provide support only to those with wordpress.COM blogs here. You are posting to the wrong forum. The correct forum for your software is found here > http://wordpress.ORG/support/


    Thank you for your kind reply “timethief”.

    Correct me if I am mistaken, but isn’t the wp.me shortening service a wordpress.com administered service? For your information, I posted the same question at the ORG forum as well…

    Also, I was not asking for support with the blog I downloaded the software for from the dot ORG, but for the service ran by the dot COM wordpress… I’m not having a problem with the blog, per se, but with the wp.me shortlink created by wordpress.com on that blog…

    P.S. I did read the sticky post, and do know the difference between a wordpress.com hosted blog, and a blog created with the software downloaded from wordpress.org.


    By the way, the post at the dot ORG wordpress support forum is at: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/423660
