    New to managed wordpress

    Hello, I used to have an old tumblr account linked to my domain, I unlinked it on godaddy and tumblr and decided I wanted to start a wordpress blog. However, every time I click "manage" so I can get started, it takes me to my domain and has the tumblr 404 page. Does it take awhile to update or did I do something wrong?

    Great username @JuanOfTheDead


    It sounds like your domain is still pointing or forwarding to Tumblr instead of your GoDaddy account.


    I found this article that talks about how you point your domain TO Tumblr, which you can probably use to figure out how to 'disconnect' it as well: https://www.godaddy.com/help/configure-your-domain-with-tumblr-5413


    Hope that helps.

    Hi @michelle831,

    are we talking about Wordpress or managed Wordpress offered by Godaddy? If the former then there is a wealth of info here : https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons


    If managed Wordpress here:https://uk.godaddy.com/help/managed-wordpress-1000021
