WordPress Accounts – Transfer blog (after Backup blog)

If you are a single-source blogger with one unique message then a solo account with your blog is sufficient.

kathleen_kettner_wordpress_transfer_blogIf you have more than one message, or messenger, then set up separate WordPress Accounts because each account links to one email address.  If you want separate streams of blog info then keep them apart from inception.  Maybe your company intranet wants an HR blog, an Ops blog, and a Suggestion Box blog for all users.

Three accounts allow the company to control or change access by group.  Multiple accounts might enhance your security if you work with a mix of private and public information.

TipEven using separate accounts, you can cross-link posts and pages between blogs as needed in terms of mixing content while still controlling who can access the dashboard within each blog.

You will have to switch between WordPress accounts for each blog-group but that helps keep the various identities separate.  You might have a family blog and a separate blog for your recording business.

To backup a blog

Quick Tip:  On Dashboard under Tools, Export, identify blog and download All Content to your local storage.  Do this periodically and ALWAYS before a transfer.

To transfer a blog

  • Make sure you have WordPress login credentials and email access for both the current account and the target account
  • Go to Dashboard of Account, select My Blogs to identify blog to be moved
  • Hover over the blog and select Transfer Blog
  • Identify target WordPress account by user name or email address
  • Read very scary message about this being permanent and irrevocable and involves your paid services and don’t dare do it if you don’t mean it.  Click and it is almost done!!
  • Receive confirmation email and click link to complete.

Tip:  Even using separate accounts, you can cross-link posts and pages between blogs as needed in terms of mixing content while still controlling who can access the dashboard within each blog.
