Transition from Collections Theme to Sela Theme

    Hello,

    I’ve created a draft of the blog page I would like to transition to. I’m looking to transfer the content I have in my blog using the Collections theme to my draft blog using the Sela theme. Is it possible to have a smooth transition from one to the other or does it require more individual transferring of all the articles, links, and photos I have in Collections?

    Please let me know what options I have as the organization is trying to look for a more clear, concise look.

    Thank you,

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello there,

    You’ll find information on exporting and importing your blog content to a new site in the WordPress.com documentation.

    I hope that helps!

    Thank you!

    I was wondering, I’d like my posts to be embedded in the pages I’ve created on my navigation bar in the Sela theme draft. Subscribers wouldn’t be notified about the pages being published though, correct? Therefore I’d need to find a way to organize the posts into the page to allow for subscribers to see them.

    Additionally, would it be easier to just change my already present theme into Sela instead of transferring all the content to Sela? Would I loose my followers and subscribers if I transferred one blog to another instead of just changing the theme?

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello!

    We didn’t create the Sela theme — it’s another theme author’s work, so unfortunately I cannot say how it’s set up and what kind of transfer process it would be. Exporting and importing content from one blog to another is always a tricky process though, and often involves some manual work to get the new formatting right.

    Even changing themes can be a process, though that’s typically what’s recommended (and what WordPress was designed for!).

    Moving content from one site to another does not move your subscribers also. So you might consider just switching themes.
