I am using Replete theme for a client and I must tell you it is an awesome theme. It worked fine while I was working on test domain, but now when I am finished with the website work – I had copied the entire folder including wordpress, plugins, database etc to new domain. I had also updated the database with new URL [you know export the database, open the sql file in editor, replace previous domain text with new one and then import the database into new one]. Set up the wp config file with new database details. Everything else is ok, but it theme is not exactly as it should be before transfer of files.
Test domain : http://astro-nerd.on2itonline.com/
New domain: http://www.astronerdapparel.com/
I tried activating other theme and then back to replete, I customize the settings again on new domain but all in vain. Nothing helping me.
Appreciate any tips on this issue.
The problem is that the settings are saved as serialized data and if the domain name changes the serialized strings will break: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11817950/what-is-data-serialization . You can use the WP MIGRATE DB plugin to migrate the database to another server.
