How To Easily Change WordPress Themes - Bluehost

How To Easily Change WordPress Themes - Bluehost | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
After choosing a theme, you may want to switch to a new one or preview potential options for a switch. Before you change your theme, be sure to follow these steps and backup or clone your existing site to ensure that your theme change goes smoothly.

Be careful when changing your theme. Most of your information will transfer, but not all of it. Your pages, posts, default WordPress settings, and media uploads will be unaffected. However, the change will affect the display of your information.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

Click through for the directions. It's a bit harder than what it reads.

Major Data Loss Bug in WPEngine and Yoast SEO Plugin - Enterprise Irregulars

Major Data Loss Bug in WPEngine and Yoast SEO Plugin - Enterprise Irregulars | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
What would you think if I told you that while using the most popular WordPress SEO plugin on one of the most popular WordPress hosting platforms you’d lose a blog post approximately every 30 days and be locked out of your account?  It’ll cost you the time it took to write the blog post plus the time to unsnarl things with the hoster each time.

Pretty ugly, right?

Well that’s exactly what can happen if you use WPEngine as your host and the Yoast SEO Plugin.  I’ve been around this track twice in the last 30 days.  Both times WordPress froze while I was editing a blog post.  Both times I lost the entire post with no backup.  I’m not sure why the normal incremental saves failed.  Both times I was completely locked out of my site–my IP address was blocked.  And both times I had to have my IP address white listed to get back in.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

You should test to see if you are experiencing the same.

Everything You Need to Know about Changing WordPress Themes - Smart Insights

Everything You Need to Know about Changing WordPress Themes - Smart Insights | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The gap that separates free and premium WordPress themes is surprisingly narrow, to be honest. The prevailing train of thought is that paid WordPress themes are far superior because they come at a price. This may be true to some extent, but it doesn't always apply.

Free themes that you can download straight from your dashboard undergo a rigid theme check from the WordPress team. Each theme is made sure to pass the coding and security standards before they are uploaded to the themes database for download. Even though they are free, these themes can still provide you the same quality that you can expect from a premium theme. Also, you can filter themes based on reviews and developer so you can be sure to view the best ones that will fit on your site.

For paid themes, I highly suggest that you look into frameworks like Genesis and Thesis. These offer the simplicity and elegance, not to mention the customization features that only free themes can dream of.
