Re-Publishing to blogspot.com, then back to a Custom Domain
It's hard to believe that it's been 5 years since I wrote a post on this subject. That means it's been about 5 years since I created Robertosblogs-dot-net, and about the same time the Nitecruzr (Chuck) created his fantastic blog, the Real Blogger Status. I remember it fairly well, because Chuck helped me a lot during those times, with Technical advice. You see, the way things were done was a lot different those days, and I was a relative Blogging-Newbie of four, or so, years experience .
I had a small problem today, with Publishing to my Custom Domain and the ubquitous, 'www.'. I forgot to include it the first time, so had to re-publish to Blogspot.com, and then correct it. I'll also have to write it up, so that it updates the previous post on the subject...see: above.
Re-publishing from a Custom Domain to Blogspot.com, is easy - nowadays. The Settings-Basic screen has changed a lot, in this regard. Re-publishing is just a couple of mouse-clicks away.
I must stress, that there is an order in which you do this. You can't just change the Custom Domain URL and hope things will be OK. You have to cancel the wrong one, and this automatically re-publishes to Blogspot.com. Make sure the basic Blogger blog URL is correct. Also, I always close the blog, and re-open it after I do any change - then, make a copy of the template.
Happy Blogging !
