A WordPress “No No”

I only have time for a quick post because I had to spend a bunch of time re-doing my entire blog. As a WordPress expert, I feel like I should have know better, but as I was doing some research this weekend, I cam across the domain statement from WordPress. It pretty succinctly stated that you cannot use WordPress in your domain name but you are more than welcome to use it in a sub-domain. So with a quick trip to godaddy.com and hitting up my control panel, wordpress.wp-expert-nyc.com is now up and running. A quick 301 redirect and we’re back in biz.

PS: the Thesis WordPress theme made it really easy to move the design. It has a great export feature and in conjunction with the WordPress export and import ability, the transfer was really easy.

    Now that I’ve seen the WordPress notice, it kind of irks me that I see all kinds of people not playing by the rules. At the same time, I’ve been working with WordPress for years and didn’t know….but once I started a site with WordPress in the domain, I did take a moment to do some research. That’s what makes me a wordpress expert for hire
