Migrate your site to WordPress

Migration

We are going to talk about moving your content from Different CMS to WordPress. So if you use Blogger, Drupal or Joomla you can move your content automatically, this is a good choice if you have lots of posts or pages to move and don’t wish to start fresh.

If you have an static HTML site, or a site in any CMS that has few pages or post I strongly recommend to copy and paste the content, so you have the chance to clean the code, in case there are images optimize them, if you are using shortcakes, maybe review if they work in WordPress

This automated process is good if you have an amount of content that you don’t want to deal manually. And I will place that number about 35/40 posts, fewer than that I can find the patience and/or courage to do it by hand. There is great article in Smashing Magazine about the steps to do it, and what needs to be revised.

The first site to learn about migration to WordPress you may want to check the Codex – https://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content
It has a very long list of CMS that can be migrated into WordPress and more information regarding how to proceed in every case.

From Drupal to WordPress :
You can find some plugins like CMS2CMS it has no good reviews, but also, the free version it has a limited number of pages.

From Blogger to WordPress :
You can do this going to the blogger dashboard and the go to settings -> Other, under the Blog Tools, you can click on the “Export Blog” link. You will se a pop up to download the information in a XML File.
Once you have that file in your computer, you may go to your WordPress dashboard, Tools, Import and click in “Blogger” that will prompt to install the WordPress importer, once you have that importer installed and active you need to choose the XML file that you downloaded and then click in “Upload File & Import” Then follow the questions you will see regarding the author.
Then setting up the permalink to the same structure you had in blogger, and that will be “month and name”

From Joomla to WordPress :
One of the best ways to do it is with the FG Joomla to WordPress plugin, it has great reviews, it has been tested on large databases from Joomla 1.5 through 3.4, and you can move a website using the free version, although the premium version has great features like migrating authors users with their passwords. You can see the differences here

So there you go, like I said, if it’s a small website, you may want to do it by hand, if it’s a large website with hundreds of posts or pages, you may want to try some demo that I have listed, let me know in the comments!

domainname

 

The first step to making a website is to choose an appropriate domain name. A domain name is like an address to your website. It gives your website an official name that other people can use to visit your website. For example, webhostingworld.net is the domain name for this website. It is a good idea to think of a good domain name for your website. Here’s a few helpful tips:

While selecting a domain name, keep the following in mind:

  • A domain name is unique and will need to be registered so that only you can use it.
  • Domain names can have many different extensions, but .com, .net, or .org, are usually the best.
  • Unfortunately, many domain names are already taken, so you may have to think of a different name that has not been registered yet.
  • Try to pick a domain name that is simple & easy to remember.

Start thinking of ideas for your domain name. Once you have chosen a name, you will need to register it.
