Exporting a blog – does the layout and theme cross over also?
I know how to export my blog, but before I do I wanted to know if the theme will be the same also. I will be moving the blog to another username I have to put everything under one login, fyi.
The blog I need help with is mysizehealthy.wordpress.com.
You can add the other user / account onto the blog you want to export / import – or you can transfer the blog ownership to the other account – both are easy to do
If you Export the contents from a blog and import the contents into another blog then NO – the theme and Widgets will not transfer over – you will need to set the second blog up from scratch
My answer above is for two WordPress.COM blogs – if one is a WordPress.ORG then some of the answers change
Okay, so if I just change the username it won’t tell me the new one is already in use? I saw that I could do that but figured I wouldn’t be allowed. I thought it was just if you wanted to change it to something entirely new.
I use a wp.COM blog.
So to move it to the “new” blog to change ownership is it as easy as just changing the username? Am I following you correctly here?
Don’t change any names – please
Let me see if I can get the example correct
Blog-1 with User-1
Blog-2 with User-2
Both single owner blogs
As User-1 you can add User-2 to Blog-1 – then User-2 can log into both blogs – one log in
As User-2 you can transfer ownership of Blog-2 to User-1 – – Then User-1 owns both blogs and again a single log-in for both blogs –
Does this help? I have transferred a couple of blogs to others and it is easy – I have also been added to other blogs to help others with other blogs
So where do I go to do all of this then? All I know of is exporting (which I now realize I don’t want to do) and changing usernames.
Also, if I finally change ownership can I eventually delete the old username or does that cancel things out? Sorry, I’m not skilled in this department :(
Adding your other name / account as a user of a blog
Transfer blog ownership to your other account:
Accounts are forever here – prevents someone else from using your ID for not good things – but you can remove all your personal info from an account and change the email to a junk one and walk away from the account
Sounds good, I’ll look into those. For some reason I thought you could delete the username (like deleting a blog) and get rid of it completely. Thanks for all your help though! :) I think I’m set!
You be welcome & good luck
