Hello everyone, it’s wonderful to have found out about ClassicPress last night while a relative was pulling their hair out after being forced to move to WordPress’s block editor, which is both slow on their mobile data, and complicated as they have no need for any of the new features.
I have been exporting things from Wordpress (dot) com all night and importing them into ClassicPress, and I think I’ve got it to a reasonable point of completion (hosted on Cloudabove)
The main problem we’re having though, is the theme. It’s from around 2012 and I found it on the ClassicPress theme page but it would seem to be an older version.
I have used some additional CSS to get the site description and pages matching with the old WordPress site, but on the homepage with all the posts, the images are displayed small until you click on the post to read it. Additionally all images on posts have a border but I’m thinking this can be solved with some more CSS.
I can’t export the theme from WordPress since the person I’m setting this up for is not on a premium plan.
Any ideas on what we should do next?
Thanks all for your consideration!
