    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:

    Database
    Genesis configuration
    Blog posts via export
    Plugins

    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.

    Thanks Brad.

    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 :/

    Okay I feel like a dummy. I fixed it by going to Screen Options and then disabled accessibility mode.
