Reverse-installing blog functionality
So I made a wordpress site for a friend in 2011 and while it works fine perhaps it is not the best example of coding (i’m a designer primarily). There are lots of template files for pages and a few hard-coded bits in those templates. Thats all I was capable of doing at the time and it worked. He didn’t want a blog at the time so I (perhaps foolishly) deleted all the other files in the theme except the ones the site was using.
Now, in 2014, he wants to add a blog. The trouble is the way I built the original site with the wordpress vesion at the time and the way the latest version of wordpress works seems quite different. I have tried copying across all the missing theme files from the twentyfourteen theme and trying to compare my versions of index.php etc, copy and pasting code, but I think this is potentially asking for trouble! We will re-do the whole site in a year or so most likely using a premium base theme so at present we just need a working blog page.
Does anyone have any advice on the best way to go about this, or if its even doable?
My alternative plan is make a sub-domain on the site with another install of wordpress just to host a blog. Is that wise? Especially from an SEO point of view?
Any information will be gratefully received!
thanks in advance 🙂
