I have completed the transfer of the registrant for isaacbrocksociety.com and immediately used our new host’s free service to forward that domain to isaacbrocksociety.ca. As soon as this has propagated across the internet, no one will be able to get to the old wordpress site using the dot.com address. The transfer has been successful in redirecting to the correct page at the dot.ca site. So there is no need for authors to go through their old posts and change links. The only thing is that comments do not have the same permalink as before and it may be useful to change links to comments.
I personally have access to the old site (isaacbrocksociety.wordpress.com), if necessary. But at this point, I have trouble seeing why it would be necessary for anyone to access the old site.
(I’ve just checked, and it is clear that subscribers to the old blog do not need change their subscriptions to the new blog because the redirect takes them directly to the correct page).
Bless your heart, Petros, and thank you for all of your work migrating the site. Bises from Versailles.
Help anyone getting email notification of new posts. I have subscribed, but I haven’t found the subscriptionmanager or any other way to let the system know that I’d like to receive notice of new posts.
Tomon, you are already subscribed. I am working with the settings for Navayan Subcribe plugin. It appears that I needed to check a certain box. Even I’m not getting notices except from wordpress.
*Great work Petros. isaacbrock.ca is far superior to issacbrock.com. Most of the credit, of course, goes to you, but it’s also a good indication that Canada is far superior to U.S. in so many ways.
@blaze 🙂 glad to see you back
*Thanks for all your work, Petros. The Brock posts and comments are always so helpful.
This is great news, and I see that the .ca domain is now showing up in google searches too. Welll done Petros. BTW, I have turned off subscriptions to .com, and am getting email notices on the new .ca, so from my perspective, everything is working as it should.
