Redesigned my blog with a new theme
I just finished redesigning my blog with a new revolution theme. The name of this theme is church wordpress theme from Revolution authored by Brian Gardner. You can find some good collection of themes there.
Before changing your theme you need to note down some important things which you will need to update with your new theme.
Theme Modification – You need to check if you have done any custom modifications to your theme, if so, you will have to do the same with new theme.
One major change I have done is I have transferred all my posts in the Technology Blog to this blog as I am no longer going to maintain that domain. I have used a 301 redirect to this domain. What I did was I exported all the posts from that blog using the wordpress export option from the tools menu in the admin panel and imported the same including the images to this blog. I was using the same post slug style so I do not have any problem with the URL. I changed the .htaccess file to the follow of my technology blog which I am no longer using and redirecting all the visitors including the search engines by indicating a 301 permanent redirect
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.kish.in/$1 [R=301,L]
I liked the content gallery plugin which you can see on the top of the home page of this blog which displays the assinged image from the assigned category post. If you would like to have this plugin for your blog, you can download it here
