    Hi all -- I just added wordpress to my domain, so that people can go to mywebsite/blog instead of myname.worpress.com. But I was wondering if there was a way to do a redirect from my wordpress blog to my domain/wordpress blog for a while, to make the transition easier?? Anyone know where and how I would do that?? Thanks!

    I don't think it's possible to do an automatic redirect as you'd have to use the .htaccess file (you don't have access to it) or mess with the DNS (you also don't have access to it).

    The best bet would be to put a post at the top of the "old" blog, redirecting people to the new one. Simple as that. It's what I did for my old Blogger ones.

    Unless someone else wants to correct me!
