Several years ago, Dave came to me for a minor redesign and migration to Expression Web. A while later, he said he wanted a blog. I told him WordPress was a good tool for blogging — it covered the commenting and security angles. I installed WordPress in a subdirectory of his website just for the blog, and he created blog posts using that interface while continuing with Expression Web for the interface to his main website.

A couple of years ago, Dave asked me to make his website "mobile-friendly". Since this would entail changing his website design significantly, and since he still wanted the blogging functionality, I recommended we create a custom WordPress theme and migrate his non-blog content to the WordPress platform.

I developed the custom theme and did the content migrations initially on my development server so Dave could review progress and provide feedback as needed. When he was satisfied, I removed his existing website and WordPress installation, installed a fresh version of WordPress (plus the appropriate plugins and custom theme) in his main website folder, and moved the migrated content into the WordPress database.
