Migrate from Wordpress

To migrate your website from Wordpress to Academic is a two phase process:

Phase One

First, install the WordPress to Jekyll Exporter plugin into your Wordpress installation by following these steps:

  1. Place the WordPress to Jekyll Exporter plugin in /wp-content/plugins/ folder
  2. Activate plugin in WordPress dashboard
  3. Select Export to Jekyll from the Tools menu

The WordPress plugin converts all posts, pages, taxonomies, metadata, and settings to Markdown and YAML with just a single click. A zip file will be generated, containing _config.yml, pages, and _posts folder containing .md Markdown files for each post.

Phase Two

Given the Jekyll formatted contents of your generated zip file in the step above, proceed to follow the guide on importing a Jekyll site into Academic.
