    Hi all what I need to do is convert an xsitepro site to wp.
    It has about 70+ pages at the moment.
    When I tried to set it up on subdomain and just copy paste old site into wp.It didnt work the h2 titles where overlapping and images where not showing up and I also thought I would cock it up big style.
    Only tried a few pages and then thought about BHW so if anyone has any info on an easy way please let me know or should I go to hire a freelancer or someone.
    I also need the site to remain live during this
    Any advice will be appreciated apart from those that just want to increase their post count with stupid comments
    Boro

    Thanks for that found it here
    After reading it I may just leave it as is :eek: it is all about adding a blog into wp I was wanting to convert to wp.
    I suppose if I integrated it first and then started transferring pages over to the blog over time that way it stays live and I dont have as much chance of totally ruining it

    What do you mean? Is that we can modify the wp theme on xsitepro and then upload it back to web hosting. Thanks

    Now we are both confused :D
    What I was after was converting an existing xsp site to wordpress .
    This ebook tells you how to add wp into your existing xsp site and modify it so it integrates and blends into the original xsp site.

    Just did a quick search and found this nothing to do with that file but an explanation of how to go from xsp to wp was not there when I looked before but could be a solution for me
