[resolved] Changing theme on a recipe blog (5 posts)

    I have a recipe sharing blog and I want to change my theme, but before I do, I want to check if my recipes will transfer over?

    Can anyone help with this? If I install a new recipe theme, will I have to re-enter all of my recipes? Or will they automatically transfer into the new theme?

    Sorry if this is a silly question, I'm quite new to wordpress.

    Hi cleaneatingfam,
    that is not a silly question and I understand your doubts.
    To see whether the recipes are ported you should install the new theme, activate it, and see if the recipes are still there. If they aren't, you can reactivate the old theme and they will be there again.
    Generally speaking the content doesn't disappear when you change theme but if the current theme uses a custom post type for the recipes, and the new theme doesn't (or the other way around), you'll have to copy/paste all your recipes so that the new theme can use them.
    Can I ask you what theme are you using right now?

    Thanks so much for the quick reply. It is a custom recipe post, so that was what I was worried about.
    The theme I'm using right now is http://themeforest.net/item/cookingpress-recipe-food-wordpress-theme/1718890

    So yes, you most probably will have to copy/paste all of your recipess to the normal posts or to a new custom post type, depending on how the new theme works.
    You could also use the export/import functions included in WordPress to speed up the entire process but before doing that verify how the new theme works.
