I'm thinking of changing my theme from Twenty Eleven to Yoko. I read up on all the steps to take before changing themes, but wasn’t able to find answers to these questions:
1. Does the flag counter lose count? I believe I have to move all my widgets to the inactive box (as I read from timethief’s reply on a previous post), and I’ll need to cut and paste the code back into a text box widget.
2. I also read that it’s ideal to let visitors know I’ve changed my theme. If so, what’s the best way to do this? If I create a new post, it will over time, move to previous entries.
3. Does wordpress.com have a maintenance mode of some sort while I make the change? I noticed some lines moved up in some of my posts when I did a live preview.
I know it’s a lot of work to go back and re-edit each post, so I may have to think this through if I decide to change themes again, later down the road - it will be a lot more editing as I will have added more posts.
Thanks in advance!!
The blog I need help with is cravingthis.wordpress.com.
