Here is how you can copy posts or pages from from one wordpress installation to another wordpress installation

​Say you have a wordpress blog on a domain and create another blog on another domain. You have some nice posts you want to import to the second domain or nice elements you want to transfere to another blog.

Here is step by step how you can do it.

If you want to export all posts in a category you can do that - jump to step 4). If you only want to export single posts use these steps.

  • On the old blog make a new category fx. "import"
  • Install a plugin that duplicates posts and pages. fx this one "Duplicate Post" by Enrico Battocchi.
  • Dublicate the posts you want to export to the new blog and publish the cloned posts in the import category.
  • Go to admin panel and tools. Choose "export" and create the export file.
  • Now go to your new wordpress installation go to "tools" choose import. You get a page with different options. Choose the bottom option "wordpress", which is to install the official "wordpress importer" plugin. Install the plugin.
  • Import the file you created from the first blog. The category "import" is created automatically on your new blog. You can change the category to whatever you want.

That's it, you have copied your posts to your new wordpress installation.

NOTE: If you want your second wordpress blog to rank in google in SEO. You should know that you cannot have duplicate content i.e. same content on your first blog and your second blog. Google will not rank the content on the second blog. You need to rewrite it or delete the first content and make a 301 redirect to the second page. The correct way if you want to move posts to another domain is to make a 301 redirect, that's an instruction to google that the content has moved permanently to a new url and you will keep the ranking in google or at least 90%.  

​How to convert a wordpress Page to a Post or a Post to Page

Have you been wondering if it is possible to change a page to a post - or a post to a page. It is possible.

Here is how to do it: Install this Page to Post wordpress plugin "post-type-switcher"

With this plugin you can convert: Page to Post - Post to Page - Page to Attachment - Post to Custom

​How to copy single pages from one WordPress installation to another WordPress installation

You can use the export function as described above to export all pages to the new installation. If you only want to export single pages you can do that by first changing the page to a post, then put that post in the import category and use the guide above to copy the post to your new wordpress installation.

​How to Copy "Thrive Content Editor" content or "Content Templates" to another wordpress installation

Also if you use "Thrive content editor" (like I do), you can transfere "content templates" created in Thrive content editor, to another wordpress installation by using the steps above. If you copy pages or posts to another wordpress installation where you have thrive content editor plugin installed, you have every things including the content templates copied to your new blog. Templates are not actually copied to the thrive editor, you will need to define the templates in thrive editor of the new wordpress installation, but find a template you want to use on one of your imported posts or pages and save as a new template in thrive editor.

That's really nice to do it this way, because thrive content editor doesn't have an export feature for exporting the content templates.

The annoying Adobe Reader right side exportPDF panel

Have you opened adobe reader recently to read a PDF file only to find out that the adobe reader window shows an annoying right grey window or side panel called adobe exportPDF?

You are not alone, adobe exportPDF is there to edit PDF, create PDF or sending PDF files.

But we only want to read a PDF, right?  - so why do they bother us with this window?

In the Menu click "view" then find and click "Read mode", e voila, the sidebar is gone. You can also simply use Control + H and it's gone too.

To make it reappear, click "tools" in the menu and the sidebar pops up again.

Hope that helped.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - Adobes newest annoying download - updated nov 2015

I was recently prompted to update my adobe reader and without knowing it I now got their new Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which is adobe's newest PDF reader. Wow how annoying this is!! - and I am not alone. Read here on Adobes forum: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1810236

"How do I stop the side toolbar from appearing every time I open a pdf in Acrobat DC?"

"Right side tool bar is annoying in Acrobat DC. How can this be fixed?"

​and here: Adobe Reader Acrobat DC: what where they thinking??  https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1835765

​I un-installed adobe acrobat reader DC after few days and reinstalled Adobe reader 11 - and am happy again.

Un-install the new DC version and get the good old adobe reader back. Download the old Adobe reader version here: http://get.adobe.com/dk/reader/otherversions/

Alternatively get rid of adobe pdf reader - get a NON-adobe pdf reader

Obviously Adobe dont care a s... about their users and user experience. Here is what I just did: I un-installed Adobe acrobat reader DC, installed the old Adobe reader 11.0. THEN un-installed this also and got a decent PDF reader, the best NON-adobe pdf reader. Look here: PDF-XChange Viewer and what a relief to get rid of adobe reader.
