I’m thinking about using a fresh installation of WordPress. I’ve had my blog for a while now and have made customizations long before using StudioPress.
My question is.. what is the best way to approach this? My blog is on http://rowell.dionicio.net.
My general plan is to backup everything:
Blog posts via export
Should I use wp-migrate-db to a local installation, reinstall WordPress, and migrate back?
Yes. Test first locally with WordPress 3.9 and backup your files as well.
I was able to upload my site to a local installation but found that there’s something up with my database because of the way widgets are displayed. That’s my primary reason for reinstalling. Must have been a modification I made a while back ago.
Basically, the widgets aren’t dynamic. I end up clicking edit and the widget opens in a new page. So there’s no drag and drop to move the widget order :/
