Migrating Thesis Post Images and Thumbnails to non-Thesis theme
Hello. I am a current Thesis user and have paid for this premium theme. On one of my Thesis WordPress blogs, I want to switch from the Thesis theme to a different, non-Thesis theme (specifically, I want to migrate this particular blog to the Twenty Eleven theme).
I can migrate my SEO data from Thesis to All in One SEO Pack, using the All in One SEO Pack Importer.
However, I do not know how to migrate my Thesis Post Images and Thumbnails. Basically, the Thesis theme has the following custom fields:
In the blog that I want to migrate, I have been using these fields to display the post image (and alt text) at the beginning of a blog post, wherever it is displayed in full, such as on its single page or an index page. The thumbnail (and alt text) are displayed wherever an excerpt is displayed.
I would rather not use these images as “featured images”. I would like my blog header to remain stable, and most of these images are formatted differently than my header will be.
I would prefer to put some kind of conditional code into a .php file, to search for whether these fields exist for a post, and if so, display them where appropriate.
I am much less comfortable messing with MySQL and would prefer not to go that route.
I am soooooooo new to .php and css and coding in general, so I am asking for some help on how to have these fields appear where I’d like them to. Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.
Also, I should note that I have posted to the DIY Themes / Thesis support forums about this issue, but they said that I should ask my questions to those who support my new theme, not to them.
I respectfully disagreed, since I may not be the only Thesis theme user to be using these custom Thesis fields and who may want to migrate to another theme in the future. However, I have not heard more from them. A couple of other Thesis users have reached out to me, but so far, I am still looking for help.
Thanks in advance for any ideas, advice, or help with this situation!
