I’ve actually been using WordPress for years, but I didn’t do much tinkering with it. This site is a slightly-tweaked WordPress template I’ve loved for years. (GeneratePress, and the paid version is worth every penny.)
But it’s so popular and powerful, I wanted to dig deeper into it. So I converted The Whisker Shop over to WP and did a lot of tweaking and tinkering… I’m still not thrilled with the catalogue/gallery page, because I want to be able to include a link to each item’s page from the gallery images, and it looks like a hot mess with everything I’ve tried so far. It looks like I’m not the first person to have this question in the plug-in’s forum, so maybe there’s a workaround somewhere.
I’d originally installed WP in a blog/ directory just for blog purposes, but I decided to see if I could migrate a WP version from a directory (blog/) to the main directory (thewhiskershop.com) and I did! Without breaking anything! And the credit goes to Ask WP Girl.
Some days you have to celebrate the small victories. 🙂
