  • Resolved Lickmycupcakes


    Hey guys, I’m planning on a blog overhaul for the new year and wanting to start fresh by removing all my posts and starting over with a blank canvas! However, I would like to have the posts somewhere rather than deleting them, just for my own reference. What is the easiest/best way to go about this? Can I archive or hide them? Or should I try to move them onto another webpage or something? Thanks guys, hope everyone had a lovely Christmas x

    You could just move them all back to draft so they aren’t publicly available on your blog? Not exactly a blank canvas I know, but it’s probably the option with minimum effort involved and you can still access old posts easily.

    There are other options, like creating a new sql database and editing your wp-config.php file to point to that instead. Just leave your old database intact somewhere should you ever really, really need it again.

    Haha thank you, it’s my blog name also.

    That’s probably a good option, I hadn’t considered changing them to drafts. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Onother method s that you can set the date while you publish and it publish only by that time. So you can have say25 post everyday. set the date for each posts. It works well
