    Just a quick Question. If I am using WPSP on my staging site and move to go live do all of them move over or do I need to do something special.
    I have some custom CSS etc. on the staging site that is WPSP list specific.

    cheers,

    Dave

    Hi there,

    Moving from staging to live should be pretty straightforward unless you’ve added something real specific like CSS that adds a custom background-image since its url() doesn’t automatically change when the site’s URL change when you move from staging to live. Unless of course you’ve added it dynamically. 🙂

    Everything else should be straightforward, assuming it’s directly copied. 🙂

    Thanks. One other question I had was if I am using WPSP on my live site, with lists already created, will they be overwritten when I push from the staging site to the live site?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    It depends on the migration tool you’re using.

    Some tools will alert you of any duplicate posts if they detect one. (Note: WPSP lists is a custom post type holding settings for the post list so it will be seen as one by migration tools.)

    Alerts will usually ask if you want to overwrite or create a duplicate copy.
