I searched the forums but it seems most everyone is going the other way...HTML to WP. I need WP to HTML! :)
I am in the process of moving my 'all WP' site to an HTML site with a WP blog. My concern is migrating the posts over in their entirety with the images and permalinks and tags intact. I do not have categories, and the tags do not show up before the permalinks. So, for example, my blog is at: http://www.domain.com/custom-blog-name-here/ and the posts look like this: http://www.domain.com/custom-post-title
I am somewhat new to this but have managed the WP site for sometime. I am working with a developer that has created a theme to match the new site. He is going to be sending that to me shortly for testing.
He has asked me to do a clean install of WP on the URL at which the blog will be located (www.domain.com/custom-blog-name-here/).
I want to test this first on a development URL (www.domain.com/just-testing/)to ensure that it transfers over properly. Can anyone run me through the needed process to transfer over JUST the posts, tags and permalinks without transferring the Pages (as those will now be obsolete)? I am simply trying to ensure that when we do move the blog, it moves just the needed blog pieces and I don't end up with a ton of 404 errors!
Feel free to ask me to clarify if I've left anything important out - I appreciate your help in advance!
