Changing the Blog address in WordPress

I recently changed the address for this blog. It was at and it is now at – Doing this in WordPress is quite straightforward once you find the right helpfile!

I looked in Options/General in WordPress and found the Blog Address field – this has the explanatory text “If you want your blog homepage to be different than the directory you installed WordPress in, enter that address here.” – so I figured that was all I had to do. I updated the address and waited – checked the new address and nothing.

A quick search of the WordPress Support Forums and I found the complete instructions to do this.

Now I’m publishing successfully to the desired address.
