Is it possible to transfer a blog from one yola site to another ( easily ), short of copying and pasting each entry? I have a new site but want to keep old blog entries from my old site prior to deletion which commemorate happy times in the past. Thank you. Sal.

Hello BritSAL

I'm afraid that this isn't possible. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you.

Have you considered trying Tumblr as your blog programme? If you have your blog at Tumblr, you can move it to any Yola website and page at any time, using the Tumblr Widget. Whenever you make changes to your Tumblr blog, it will be synchronized with your embedded Tumblr blog on your Yola website, and you can even access your Tumblr account from Yola Sitebuilder.

Hello Sal,

This is a thought only.
You mentioned you have a new site so would it be possible to reconstruct your new site around your old blog site? You have silver so all the Styles are available for you to switch if you wanted to. You could delete pages in your old site if they weren't important or keep them if you want. Add new pages to duplicate your new site and leave you old blog untouched just with a major facelift?

If you have already built a considerable new site then it would be a lot of work I know. Just hoping somehow you can get you out of the bind of an immovable object vs a strong desire to integrate the history with the new face.

Yes it is Sal. You can publish it with a new domain and a new name. Something I have done today in fact.

The site I have has a yola sub domain...I have changed the name on the site fine, but the original name still stays as the link to click on to go there, and in the address bar? How can I change that too?

Hi Sal,

You would need to republish to the sub-domain/domain that you want. How to change your subdomain
If you have already done that then it may be a matter of setting your primary or canonical domain if you are using both a sub-domain and a custom domain. Assigning Domains and Creating a Primary Domain
