View Full Version : converting...

Right now I have a static html site that I have not done much work to.

It is generating reasonable traffic from search engines and I most definately want to keep it that way.

However I have decided that it is time to expand the site and now need to convert it to a cms, which I have decided to use joomla.

Just to check this is possible? And the question I have been dreading how hard is it?

As a side note, one lesson this has taught me is always be prepared, or always use a cms just incase you want to expand at some point in the future.

Ahh, wonderful hindsight.

Yes, it is very possible.

One thing you'll want to do is makesure old URLs point to the new URLs appropriately. Search these forums for "301 redirect" and you should find all you need on that topic.
