HTML Import?

    Morning all,

    I was just wondering if it’s possible to import the data from an old school HTML website (it’s actually one my Dad writes) in to WordPress?

    He has been considering moving from the static pages he runs at the moment, at to some kind of hosting site, such as this one ;-)

    If anyone has any suggestions we’d be most grateful.





    Can’t import directly – but there are only about 20 pages – copy and paste the code into new Posts (use the paste text option, or you can try pasting the html into the text editor – see below on how not to have formatting errors )

    The pictures will need to be added to the media library and inserted into the Posts

    Use Posts as they are more flexible and search better –

    My guess is less than two hours total time – maybe about an hour if you are not very OCD about fine tune formatting

    Make sure you have “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” at

    Dashboard >> Settings >> Writing
