I want to move my blog from my current wordpress address to another wordpress address so I can repurpose the original address. I found two methods: "Moving a Blog" transfers an XML file. "Changing a Blog Address" renames the blog's url.
I tried Moving via XML first. It moved quickly and completely except for the header and widgets. These can be fixed but a couple widgets that were site visit counters will start over and I'd rather them not. If i instead use the Changing method, will these and other widgets transfer? Is there any advantage to moving by one way or the other? Thanks!
The blog I need help with is brianbutko.wordpress.com.
