    Hello all
    1 Old database with a mighty amount of material in it
    2 Requirement for a new front end
    Is it easy (and how easy) to build a new front end and then 'graft' it on - can you direct me to a fool's guide, it's only my fourth week at it (WP)?

    1. A WP database?

    2. Do you mean a new theme? It's extremely easy - especially if you use a pre-built theme. And there are hundreds to choose from.

    Thanks Esmi but no
    I want to keep an existing WP database intact but build a new front end entire - the code for the current site has been hacked and cannot be updated, it's jammed in April 2007

    so why not do a fresh install of wordpress
    install theme you want
    import database
