I’m finally on RW6. So far, it really feels a lot more snappy and fresh. I like it.
But, I’ve been working on the same web site file since 2008. I’m thinking of starting fresh and new (new content, theme, etc…). But, I have to preserve paths, file names, etc…
Thus, 2 options:
- Create and entirely new RW file and re-create all the pages. I would manually enter in all the paths, file names, meta-data, etc… This would be very fresh, but also introduces the possibility of user error.
- Keep the existing RW file that has all the pages in it. Go into each page (~20) and just delete all the content (including any CSS, etc…) and then just change my theme and start over.
My question is… any opinions on which option is best. I’m leaning towards option 2, but is there any chance of old crufty code being left behind? Leaning towards 2 because this preserves all the blog posts.
