How do I move from multisite to singlesite? (6 posts)

    When I installed wordpress it did a multisite install by default.

    I hadn;t really understood the differences and set up a site anyway. Several pages but minimal blog posts.

    I need to make it a single site now but am not sure what to do!

    Thanks

    I'm guessing you used a 1 click installer? I've not seen one that does multisite by default -- it shouldn't. If you're not comfortable with editing configuration files and digging around in the database I'd suggest using export / import.

    I wasn't comfortable editing the php file. I did an export, reinstalled wordpress and then imported. Theme was totally screwed up (which is another reason for reinstall aside from multisite issue).

    I deleted theme files from wp-content directory and left just the 2014 theme, but still no formatting!

    Is there anything in the imported file that can have caused this? I don't want to lose the pages I created if avoidable.....
