Converting An Existing Site to WordPress

March 23rd, 2013

One service that is often requested by my clients is if it’s possible to take their existing website and convert it into a WordPress site. A common concern seems to be whether the site can retain its current design / layout or if it would have to be changed in the process. The good news is it’s absolutely possible to do a conversion which retains all of the features you love about your current site.

Your Site Can Look the Same in WordPress

When WordPress developers, like myself, can develop custom themes from scratch, it gives us the ability to take your existing site and tack on the WordPress CMS without requiring many, if any, changes to your site. The complexity of this undertaking is based on what type of coding language your original site uses and the scope of the project (number of pages, functionality needed, etc.)

Reasons for wanting a WordPress conversion vary. Maybe you are sick of having to reach out to a developer every time you want to edit text or swap out an image of your site. Maybe your existing site uses a different content management system that you find clunky & hard-to-use. Whatever your reasons, I’m sure you’ll be amazed at how simple WordPress can make managing your site once it’s converted.
