Content Imports and Site Migrations
September 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Note that I’ve scheduled this for the 4th Sunday in September to avoid a conflict with WordCamp Sacramento.
Here’s the problem: the client’s old site is not in WordPress, but you need to import a ton of content. What do you do? It’s not always easy to bring content from another platform into WordPress, but it is always possible.
Importing from HTML with the HTML Import 2 plugin
Importing WP comments with WordPress Comments Import & Export
Changing post types with Post Type Switcher
Managing taxonomies with Term Management Tools
Importing authors to Co-Authors Plus
If you have experience with complex imports (looking at you, Anca), please volunteer to help present.
