I have been asked to make a property site ‘easy to update’. The site has about 30 pages, with around 20 property listings that are also html files. Not in any database or anything just plain HTML for everything.
The customer wants an admin areathat he can log in to, within a few clicks change some text or upload a picture, the website resize the picture and make it fit nicely, and he can then save and log out. I immediately thought "WORDPRESS!" but then I realised that this is going to be a big job.
Creating a theme in wordpress to look exactly like his existing site isn’t a problem, but taking all of the content and adding it to wordpress and then making sure it is styled in the original way will take a lot of time.
Does anyone know of a quick easy way to convert a whole website to wordpress? Or is it going to be literally copy and pasting each page and editing it to look right?
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?
