(Sorry, I had wrongly placed this post in the HOW-TO area without noticing the multisite one)
Hi there, I have a WP.com blog at mywebsite.org. I purchased the domain mapping feature to get rid of wordpress.com from the initial mywebsite.wordpress.com URL.
I am currently transfering the domain name mywebsite.org to a new hosting space where I will install WP from scratch.
My plan is to open two other parallel blogs besides the old existing one, using one only installation of WP. I discovered the possibility of activating the multisite option, so if my main page is http://www.mywebsite.org, I'd like to have 3 blogs like this:
I would like to import in the first one the posts/files/comments from my old WP.com blog. Forgive my naivety, is this possible? I mean, I have always seen the main domain (www.example.com) flanked by subdirectories or subdomains in multisite examples and guides, whereas I want to reserve the main domain to a static page that works as a entrance to the rest of my site (3 blogs plus other static pages). Should I keep the main page URL mywebsite.org for one of the blogs?
Before the mapping feature I bought at WP.com expires, I was planning to fiddle with WP multisite and export & import the content of my old blog (still temporarily running as mywebsite.org) in one of the 3 freshly created blogs (namely at this URL: http://www.mywebsite.org/blog). Would this blow up something in the still existing blog a WP.com?
Thanks in advance for your help
