iBlog Pro to Platform Pro?

Recommended Posts

ibeehappy2

Hi there, I want to swap themes from iBlog Pro to Platform Pro on this site : http://brendajohima.com Can you please tell me if there is anything I need to do before switching themes and if there are any major glitches in doing so? And/or point me to the documentation of swapping themes to Platform Pro. Can't seem to find it. Thanks!

Did you already purchase PlatformPro? Some of the content and features will differ in PlatformPro, so you will have to implement those differently, but you can export your posts and pages so that they can be imported into the new theme.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Yes, I already own Platform Pro, and all of the Pagelines Themes. I have worked with Platform Pro before on a different website, but it was done from scratch, so easy. I have not, however, imported an existing site into Platform Pro. So can you please outline the steps I need to take? I am currently using iBlogPro 4 and want to switch to Platform Pro. I know that customization will be required after that, but is there something different I need to do before changing themes?

You'll need to export your content first: http://codex.wordpress.org/Tools_Export_Screen After exporting, you'll need to import the content by uploading the file to your PlatformPro install: http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#WordPress You don't have to delete iBlogPro theme you already have (you can just deactivate and activate it as needed). It's also important to back up your content so that you don't lose any of it during the process of moving.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
