    Hi
    I’ve been running a site for 10 years and it uses a 3rd Party Theme and also page builder. I want to start from scratch because much has changed and I want to communicate a new narrative, although some areas like pages and posts will still apply.

    I run my own server so I’ve set up a sub-domain and I want to move the new site which is the sub-domain to replace the original domain, once I’ve completed the new site.

    So I’m wondering what should I be thinking about as I structure new categories. I’m going to use Divi Builder as I’ve got more familiar with it and have bought some useful plugins to help along way as I establish a design and structure.

    I never bothered about SEO in the old site as I really wasn’t ready to launch a revenue based model, which I am now. There are some good SEO plugins around as well but I’m unsure about what would be the easiest for me.

    I’m limited in skills and time for each area as I work with the Developers who have almost build our SaaS platform. I’m managing all the content and passing links to the SaaS (Kubernetes Model) for the relevant areas.

    Any guidance would be welcome right now.
    Thanks

    Any guidance would be welcome right now.

    The best guidance I can give is to get the best out of this forum ask specific questions. If you can focus on one issue at a time the it will attract answers from those that have that specific knowledge.

    So I’m wondering what should I be thinking about as I structure new categories. It will be a completely new Theme I’m using.

    Thanks

    Thanks Alan. That’s quite a read and having gone through, I don’t think I’m going to be able to technically do it, in the areas I’m looking to complete.

    There is actually a lot of pages and posts in the old site that I’d like to use, which do span a few years, but I will be selective and I think Exporting some and Importing others to the new site, might in the end be the best option for me. It’s just less technical. I’m launching a Not For Profit from an award winning idea I came up with many years ago. The award was in 2015 and now, I’m almost ready to launch Phase 1.

    I say that because people that have been discussing and watching me are in Gov and Public Sector as well as the Waste Industry. I’ve got my name around and now the launch is about attracting people who Repair Electrical items and Consumers.

    So I think it’s not fully a standing start here and I want to grow slowly anyway until I pull some revenue in. Time and resource is a big factor for me, as I have to pull in Volunteers to help as well.

    I will just have to look at the technical aspect of making the old domain become the new domain. Redirecting the URL is one option, but that’s probably not the best in terms of SEO (which I will probably put a Plugin on anyway, once I’ve got content written)

    If anyone has knowledge of how to do that otherwise, do let me know.
    Thanks for responding Alan anyway. It was good of you to do so.
