Hi - I just changed my blog name/domain from to . When I click on a former blog post link in Facebook it does not redirect the link to that post.

How can I fix this?

Hello Amy,

Sorry for the problems with the re-direct! I took a look at your account and fixed the issue. The problem was related to the re-direct that you created. Since you wanted everything FOLLOWING the "" domain to redirect using the new domain name of "", you needed to create the re-direct as a wildcard redirect. I changed it and now all of the redirects should be working. I tested this after my change to make sure it was working.

I hope that helps to clarify the problem. Check out our article on creating re-directs if you require further information on the subject. Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
