Getting Started

I have a domain name for a website that is long in keywords and is quite cheesy. It is 9 months old and has around 50 published pages/posts.

I know that I have probably

If you have both websites hosted at WA then you can use the "Move" button on the old website to move all the content to the new website. Keep the old website for a couple of months because the move will set up redirects.

so its all done automatically over time then? Do you know if it will do permanent damage too rankings?

Thanks

Better to do it now than in another year or so.

have you done this move with one of your websites before? I will just move it to the new domain and continue using the same website theme to prevent any new theme issues with transfer.

The new site should be exactly the same as the old site after the move. Don't add anything to the old site after the move, just use the new site from then on.

It's all sorted out thanks. so yeah pretty shocked of the simplicity of this change. I was expecting a lot of complicating tasks ahead. Proof that WA is simply amazing!

In many WP themes, all you need to do is make an edit (however small) on the post in question and the date gets updated to whatever date you make the edit on (note: not all themes allow this though). Which solves the problem of an 'old' post ...

Go to wordpress.org and look for a plugin to do the job.

The Wealthy Affiliate Platform

I don't really need an answer because I was already expecting to receive spam in this line of business.
But I decided to set up the Site Email tool and dedicate the email ad

Yeah, any 'hosting' email platform will not offer the same level of spam protection that the likes of a gmail will provide. You want to utilize email forward and this way you can centralize communication from all of your websites in one place as well as leverage the top email platform in the world, gmail.

This is how I set up to send and receive email in gmail form my domain specific email addresses:

WA has expert spam protection in place. This may be leaking through on a site Email platform. Be sure of your e-mail service provider.

Benjamin I am a bit confused did you set up a domain specific email that is receiving spam?

Um. I think the reason might because at the bottom of my website has my email address displayed. Maybe scam bots have scanned my website for my email.

I don't want to risk changing my website theme to another at this stage of my business. Then figure the new theme is no good for me and go back to my original.

Great post--Thanks,Tim

The Theme Foundry gives guidance here: https://thethemefoundry.com/blog/changing-wordpress-themes/

Changing a theme can cause pictures, videos, headings and other formatting issues to become out of place and in some cases corrupted. This can even happen to a slight degree when upgrading an existing theme, as happened to me when I upgraded my theme the last time.

But for what you are asking and for what happened to me, is why I now always use and always recommend that others do too, is to have a test website that has almost an exact copy of your current website, minus most of the content, so you can make changes to it. By using a test website you can do updates and theme changes to it to see how it will effect that which you have on your main website, without risking anything from being broken. But regardless of whether you use a test website like I and others do, you should always back up your current website before making any theme changes.

Hi Ben, there is likely to be a change to the look and feel of your content if you change your theme. the content will still be there but it may not look the same on the different theme.
The only time I have found you really have trouble is if you change to a drag n drop builder type theme.
If you are unsure then do a back up of your site so you can re-install if you need to, should do this anyway.
All the best.

Yes it's possible to lose all of your data with the wrong theme...make sure everything is backed up like Jude here says!

Yes. When I changed themes it actually changed my posts. The width, length, lines etc

You should make a full backup of your site before you go ahead. You can use a backup plugin.

Read this: I've changed themes without any major hassle.

Cathy points out some of the settings you may need to adjust for your new theme.

You can test new themes without actually activating them to see how it looks and what work you will need to do. Usually it's just re-adding the widgets and menus. Even if you make the switch, you can always switch back.

You can set up a test site on a Siterubix. com (or if you have a domain that you are not using now) and play around with your new theme before you change it on your live site.

Thx, will read and you pose some good points

Hi - you can always click on the preview button before applying the theme, to get an idea of how it would look?

Cheers, Mark

Yes I feel exactly the same, so I would also be interested in the answers to your question

Do it as soon as possible. I was thinking the same way and I am now at 280 posts and pages and I hate my theme.

Yes many things can go wrong, picture galleries in mess, tables in mess, widgets in mess, menu unrecognizable. That is why I was waiting instead of changing immediately.
