Ron,

I don't mind you stopping by. I don't know if Pam will be reading this before she leaves tomorrow or not. But Marc had already mentioned he would be stopping by, and co-working is a common, known and open thing here. So I think she understands anyone might be there.

I will also be doing a krudh run through so you might or might not want to see that. Going to call Keith and let him know about it also.

I was referring to an issue I had where I had admin rights on the joomla sites but not rights on the host- so no ftp ability.
 Akeeba backup can be run by an admin(not even super-admin needed) to get the database and complete site files without host privelages.
personally that is a huge warning flag to me for who has access to the backend being able to "steal" the site.
But the designers that misconfigured the sites (default installs with admin a user still) the site and database password in the clear in the config.php files.
I kid you not.
but It allowed me to protect the clients site and data without ftp on host.
just some info between us folkes that need to sometimes protect clients from the web folks before us.

btw: i will keeping your sql svn code on file for some future need. thank you for that.

"advantage on joomla is akeeba backup is a way around the ftp problems for migrating the site."

mysqldump -u username -p -h hostname databasename > dbname.date.dump.sql
svn add dbname.date.dump.sql
svn commit -m "Adding dbname.date.dump.sql

Thats all for the db...for the wordpress itself...
svn commit wordpress -m "Committing latest changes to Wordpress...."

:D Of course I have that in a script. Still automatic built in backups I've never trusted. Check, then double check. And check again. That's the DBA's job.

Go daddy is the pits, one of our guys faught with it a month or so ago and finally got sftp up to get me a copy of the site (joomla) so I can build test sites on other hosts. I use godaddy exclusively for domain registrations not for hosting I dumped them for that back in 2003. I don't know why they make you go through so many unnecessary hoops.
Pam, pick a host any host and install wordpress there and rebuild the site...it will be easier for you in the long run.
 I am going through such conversions with a few sites trying to move them from joomla...advantage on joomla is akeeba backup is a way around the ftp problems for migrating the site.

Pam,
GoDaddy is a pain, but you should still be able to FTP to your WordPress directory to update your CSS file. (under wp-content>themes>yourtheme)

You mentioned child themes which makes me think you may be working with a theme framework such as Thesis or even Twenty-Ten. If that is the case, it won't be quite as simple as with a more vanilla theme. You may need to spend some time getting to know hooks and functions.php (the one in your theme file not in the main directory.) These types of themes rely on function calls far more than others. Thesis for example is very easy for end users but is more difficult for developers to customize.

If that is not the trouble you may find it helpful to peruse
http://www.heidicool.com/samplewordpress/the-wordpress-loop/
and
http://www.heidicool.com/samplewordpress/hierarchy/

which will help you understand more about the WordPress loop and the template hierarchy.

Good luck!

I used Godaddy. I know I know, but it was all I knew at the time when I started this site back in Sept. The client JUST got me the content, so I'm stuck with Godaddy. And, of course, They installed Wordpress for me. I'll never do that again.

I have co-working every day, just about seven days a week. I would need to know the time.

Also what host did you install WordPress on and how did you install it?

Kind Regards,
Aoirthoir The Fatman.

Aoirthoir,

I'm having a devil of a time with this wordpress site. I was under the impression that this was easier to customize than Joomla, but after going to Lynda.com for some tutorials���talking about child templates���this is NOT going well. I am a designer and was able to go into Joomla and customize the css with little problem. Do you have co-working tomorrow? If so, may I come there and work and ask you some questions about this site?

Thx, Pam Adams
