  • Resolved omniuniverse


    Hey Guys,
    I transfered my wordpress at from one hosting service to another and I’m having trouble getting all the custom themes and things to work properly. I created a new database on the new service and then installed a basic wordpress on it. I then ftp’d into the server then transfered EVERYTHING over to the new one and then backedup the database from within the wordpress dashboard with the export tool. I then activated my custom theme and all the plugins and then imported the old database into the new one. The problem is that it doesn’t look a bit like it used to. It has the correct banner but the background and layout is totaly wrong. It’s also missing some areas that had picture slideshows and other things. I’ve been working on this problem for weeks now and am wit’s end. Hope someone can help, please and thank you.

    You either didn’t transfer all, or there’s something else going on here. From what I see you have no posts/pages on your site.

    Does this theme have any options? Maybe something isn’t setup there. And also always test with default WordPress Theme first, just so that you can rule out obstacles.


    I hope someone can answer me, please!

    I transferred a site to a new server with different domain, but the links are not working anymore. So the pages are not linked to the home page.

    Is there anything I could do, or would you recommend me to start the process again?

    Thanks for helping!

    Have you tried to reset your permalinks.

    Resave your permalinks for one.

    Super, resetting the permalink did the trick! Thanks a lot! 🙂
