I’m moving! (My blog, that is.) 4


I think I have this thing figured out. I can still use the features of Blogger while hosting the blog on my own server. Please update your newsfeeds for http://www.targuman.org/blog/!

I am going to try and keep this blog name in order to redirect folks…

UPDATE: That is why the above says “Targuman.org, I now have two “Targuman” blogs that I can see in the Dashboard, but you all will only see the “new” targuman.blogspot.com. Confusing, if you ask me.

UPDATE PART 2: Following on Justin’s questions (which I also had)
Blogger continues to do all the work, including keeping ltrack of my archives, it is all just stored on my server. The result is that in Dashboard you will still see your blog, with all its archives, etc. but, unless you immediately reregister your blogspot.com name, you will lose that url. So below you should see “Targuman.org” (my old blog with the new name; includes all my old and new stuff, just like before) and “Targuman” which is a NEW blog created solely to keep my blogspot name.

UPDATE PART 3: The redirect should now be working! So welcome to the new home of the Targuman Blog!

    Justin – it’s actually rather easy. It does all the work for you.

    CB – congrats! You might also want to add an auto-redirect instead of merely a link. I find that many people have not updated their bloglists with my new URL, so with a simple meta tag it doesn’t really matter.

    (OK, the picture will not appear in comments, I will post an update in the actual post.)

    Chris – thanks for the tip! I had this in mind and simply had not found the code for redirect. I will look for it now.

    The javascript will work, hopefully, but there was an easier way to do it.

    !meta http-equiv=”Refresh” content=”1;url=http://www.targuman.org/blog”!

    (Since putting in the actual tag would have refreshed this page to your blog, just change the !! to .)

    On mine, I have both the script and the meta tag, and it works like a charm.
