@manton I just renewed my Micro.blog to check out the newest features. Although everything looked right at checkout, my blog domain was changed from eggfreckles.micro.blog to Thomas Brand.micro.blog after paying. Anyway to change it back? Thanks,

@eggfreckles Yikes, thanks for letting me know. Must be a new bug from when I improved subscriptions recently... I've fixed the subdomain for your account back to eggfreckles.micro.blog. Thanks!

Sorry @manton one more interuption. I reimported all of my old blog content from a WordPress archive, but I am not seeing it on eggfreckles.micro.blog. I have tried rebuilding the site with a new theme and changing pagination, but only new content shows up.

@eggfreckles Sorry, fixed now. That problem with not using the right "eggfreckles" subdomain caused the imported URLs to be wrong... Corrected them and it should be fine going forward.

@manton thank you. I figured as much. I assume adding an outside domain updates everything?

@eggfreckles Yep, if you add a custom domain name under the Design screen it should update everything to use that.

@manton hopefully last thing. Unable to delete Thomas Brand.micro.blog/feed.json

as a crosspost source.

Thank you @manton, you earned your $5 hosting fee today. Is there a Micro.blog tip jar?

@manton is there anyway to updatea permalink? I was unaware what I type as a first line and save as a draft becomes the permalink for a future post

@eggfreckles I ended up deleting and republishing my post using MarsEdit. eggfreckles.micro.blog/2022/05/3...

@eggfreckles No way to edit the permalink currently, other than (as you did) re-post it. There is also a trick that some people use by adding an HTML comment at the beginning of the post if you want to customize the "3 words" that Micro.blog uses.

@manton I appreciate your approach targeting simplicity. I guess I just got stuck by my drafts incorporating a slug that is no longer part of the published post, and no way to view the slug until I hit publish.
