Just wondering if there is a better way to deal / manage questions about moving WordPress or users having problems with WordPress after they moved it from Localhost to new location.
It seems to me that a few of us might have stock answers for this problem. So it made me think: wouldn't it be better to make this a wiki / FAQ type questions(s) / (or something else)?
I would add that these questions are already duplicates so in using a stock answer, we are just recycling the same content.
At the same time as @UserAbuser points out: it doesn't stop the question being asked. My thought on this is, it would be more helpful to point the user to the WPSE wiki page, rather than:
- continue to use our own stock answers (if we had a wiki we could all contribute to that)
- we just close the question as duplicate (which doesn't fix the users problem)
- we point the user to the Codex - Moving WordPress (which may leave the user feeling like we've given them the flick)
