Hi.

 

I have just migrated my store over and the blog, and its a complete mess.

 

I've spent the last couple of days trying to put things in order but I've gotten no where.

 

Is there anyone that can me any advice on how to sort it out?

Thanks. Alan

Can be a bit manual, a developer would to help get some parts sorted faster. 

 

  • Missing images - download from WP and re-upload to Shopify one-by-one in the blog editor. 
  • Too many newlines - clear out some of these when editing each article in Shopify admin
  • Broken links, you can fix these in the Shopify blog editor too. Could use a Chrome extension like Broken Link Checker while viewing the live page to locate them. Fix in Shopify admin blog editor. 
  • Title sizing - some are pretty big and odd looking. If can't be edited with theme customizer, then you may want a designer/dev to create a better 'default' for the blog article H2, H3, H4, H5, P tag formatting. Should be able to target with CSS like ".article-content h2"
  • You may want to use a different style for "big intro paragraph" that is not an H2 
  • You may need a dev to build you a custom feature to enable you to have a mid-blog featured product block with Add To Cart button if you still want that. I've had this done where we just added a basic HTML comment tag like <div pid="9876543231" class="article-product-single"></div> which took the product ID, inserted the block within the div etc.
  • Some of your blog article tags have weird casing - you could use a bulk tag editor app to adjust these.
  • There may be some migration apps

 

If you only have a handful of articles - do it manually. If you have 100+ then you may want to look at migration apps and some more automations.
