Rick --

What is the current/best approach to use when changing a site from Thesis to Genesis, re SEO ?

I had never used it but I did understand that this plugin used to work - SEO Data Transporter --
but from what I am searching on line and finding about this issue, it seems that this plugin might have only worked with older versions of Thesis (ie 1).

 

What are you suggesting as the current best plan to handle this SEO transfer issue from Thesis to Genesis?

Thanks much.

Carolin, I don't think there is anyway to automate that process currently.  None of the plugins that suggest they can will actually work with Thesis 2+.

So your solution is to create a plugin to extract and rename the post meta, which I will have to do in order to move to Yoast SEO, or manually transfer them field by field.

Thanks Rick --

Oh my, I would not know how to create my own plugin to extract and repost the meta data  -----

I was worried that the answer might be that everything would have to be transferred manually field by field --
nothing I searched and found in terms of an existing plugin/tool seems to reference it will handle any Thesis beyond version 1.0x.

Well manual transfer is doable -- just takes some time.

 

Thanks much.
