Thank you for, quite simply, the best blogging platform around. WordPress.com is a great way to befriend you.
My back’s killing me, my brain hurts, and my eyes are rolling on the floor somewhere…
Here’s the thing:
I want to move from WordPress.com to GoDaddy using WordPress.
- Setting up WordPress on GoDaddy – painless
- Exporting – no sweat
- Importing – still not sweating
- Hacking together our own theme – done
- Automattically redirecting to our new domain – no way Jose!
Not only that, I have spent 90 minutes reading countless forum comments to come to the realisation that the “Domains” offering only goes one way; the opposite direction of where I need to go
Yes, I can put up a “I have moved” post, but this is so Web 1.0, and code is poetry – don’t you know?
Other like minds are in need of it too – see?
So Automattic, when you have some spare time, please please please fix it. If not, then please have a big red ”no we do not provide this” on the “Domains” page :-)
PS: The X-hacker comment is very cute
