Transferring site/theme to another host?

    Hi there,

    Just wondering are there many complications when transferring the barelycorporate theme from one host to another.
    I’ve had to begin building the site using my own hosting space, while a new hosting account is set up with the same provider, new domain transferred etc.

    The website is really just text and images, no blog entries or anything like that, so is it just a matter of transferring files via FTP and ensuring SQL db login details are the same etc.?

    Also, is it possible to change the colour of the footer section, similar to the header?

    Many thanks for any feedback.

    Hello,

    Just wondering are there many complications when transferring the barelycorporate theme from one host to another.

    This isn’t really anything specific to the theme. I have a pretty complete article on this just in general, but it can be a bit difficult if you’ve never done this before.

    Note: Step #2 is crucial. Make sure you read the yellow note at the top and don’t mess that part up, or you’ll have to do your database transfer again. That’s the part that always trips people up.

    I apologize, but theme does not have a feature for this. This would be a CSS customization you’d want to make most likely from your Child theme.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
