Home Forums Back End Convert existing site to WP Re: Convert existing site to WP


Thank you for replying!

I know that WordPress uses a database, I was describing his current site, which has the properties listed as plain HTML files.

Unfortunately your answer is what I was expecting meaning that I have a lot of copying and pasting. I will create a header, menu and footer. And then insert all of his content as pages.

A while ago Chris(or maybe Jeff) posted something in DWP about CMSing a WP installation, there was a particular addon that removed all references to posts and things. I have had a look and can’t find the name of that addon, anyone have any idea about that?
