    My wife was fed up with the quirks of her own website which is using a standard theme. When I suggested to use GP and directed her to the demo section of the site library, she fancied the clean look of the Wordsmith site.

    Now my question is: How can I import that over an existing website?

    What options do I have to start afresh with this look and tweak from there.

    The existing website is not very complicated and mainly blogs posts.

    Any pointers to make it happen?

    Adventurous greetings,
    Coen

    Hi there,

    We typically only recommend importing templates to a fresh install.

    In this case, my recommendation would be to start a staging site so you can duplicate the current set up, then import Wordsmith in the staging site and start tweaking from there.

    Once the staging site is all ready to go, duplicate it to the live site.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂

    Thanks as always Leo, any recommendations on what to use for setting up a staging site? And how to duplicate things…

    This is not my daily work… So a few pointers would be handy.

    Hi there,

    speak with your Host – most hosting providers nowadays have a Staging service, which will ( should ) be automatic.
