To move a huge amount of content from the client’s old WordPress-based blog onto the new OctoberCMS-based blog. As well as the blog content, the blog readers’ comments which are under each post had to also be transferred. The transfer had to be unnoticed by blog readers.
To sort out incompatibility issues caused by lots of different employees managing the blog over a number of years resulting in differentiating ways of adding blog posts, categories and pictures.
Demoweb, a web and mobile application design company based in Montreal, Canada.
We created a plugin from scratch which allowed our client to replace the long, problematic and complex process of transferring the blog content with a quick and smooth ‘import’ job.
The process is simple – just install the plugin, add the link to your file with the blog content exported from WordPress, click ‘Import’ and watch it transfer your blog for you!
