I looked through the forum but did not exactly find an answer so here goes. i am looking at a major redesign for an existing wp site. As of now, it is built within one site but has several "sections" of separate users input, thus creating tons of pages and posts. I am wondering if it will be better for management to go with a multi-site set up (though i have not set up a multi-site as yet : )).
Because of the massive content of existing site, can someone suggest the easiest and most efficient way to go about the redesign (both theme and content) and still have the existing site usable in the meantime?
I know my way around wp, have built a few sites but am a long way from super knowledgeable. I recently created a wp site in a test folder for another, non wp, site but when i went to move the new site to the root, I ended up having to go into the database and change the path to all of the photos, links, etc. which i would love to avoid this time around.
thanks in advance (hopefully)
