An opportunity has come up which allows us to stop posting for the week on a blog with heavy traffic. I'm looking to tear it down and build it back up in terms of theme, options, look, etc... while maintaining the content.
This blog has been getting creaky lately. Some plug ins will not install. (The install process thinks they are installed but they do not show up as a plug in.) And other little warts.
Is there a guide I can read for doing this?
