website to wordpress

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am getting ready to convert a HUGE HTML website to a wordpress theme (either studiopress or thesis). Normally, I would create a directly within the website to put the new website so a client could see the progress without the actual website being disturbed (www.mysite.com/2010website). Will this work the same way with Wordpress??

 

Thanks,

Kim

You can also add a pluging to WordPress called : Maintenance mode.

 

What this pluging does is add a Splash page on the web. In other words, anybody that looks up the URL of your client, witll get this white page to which you can add a message appropriate to the situation.

 

If you want your client to follow your updates to the WordPress website simply give him your login info for WordPress.

 

You can activate or deactivate from your dashboard.

Excellent tip Elenora - I thought it was impossible to work "behind the scenes" in Wordpress. I am grateful for your tip.

 

It's a life saver! Have been using it for my new WordPress website...which will open for the 1st of March ;) Will be happy when it's done!

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone had trouble with Maintenance-mode not showing the frontend when you're logged in as the Admin? I just installed it but I can't get access to the front end and found nothing useful on the Wordpress.org boards.

 

Thanks.

Amanda -

 

 

I would first check if your version of WordPress is compatible with the Maintenance plugin. Often what happens is that we go ahead and upgrade our WordPress, meanwhile the plugins themselves are not upgraded - thus not working!

 

I know this sounds like 101, but are all your pages published or still in draft form? You have to publish your pages to be able to see them in the Maintenance plugin.

 

You can also go to the Maintenance plugin website, and read the Q&A post. Very informative.

 

 

If all else fails...email me. It will be my pleasure to help you out!
