I didn’t realise how many features you lose from switching to WordPress.org! No comments in the reader and it only shows part of your post. Crappy! So I’m cancelling that hosting since it’s within 30 days, and I’ll just point my domain at the free site.


Interestingly, WordPress seems to do this cool auto URL thing… My domain ledainhand.ca redirects to ledainhand.wordpress.com and yet the old links still worked. e.g. http://ledainhand.ca/little actually works and automatically goes to https://ledainhand.wordpress.com/2017/10/29/little/ which was totally confusing at first. Then I did an experiment… what happens if you use https://ledainhand.wordpress.com/little/? Yep, that works too!

So that’s my amateur WordPress tip of the day! It makes it a little easier to link to your own posts, and apparently if you have domain re-directing, then yourkinkyblog.com/slug goes to yourkinkyblog.wordpress.com/slug which goes to yourkinkyblog.wordpress.com/2020/02/29/slug

Bonus, I won’t lose any sleep over broken links. I’m so thrilled and honoured to have been linked (Thank you!!) and I’m relieved I don’t have to trouble anyone to update links (in fact, I prefer the ledainhand.ca/slug links because they’re more permanent, in case I ever move hosts again).
