ASP to WP/PHP converter?

Msg#: 4391702 posted 5:21 pm on Nov 28, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have a handful of ASP sites that I need to convert to WP. I am taking a stab in the dark and wondering if there is an up to date tool that can accomplish this sort of task. I have found a few tools out there, but, they are all dated.

None that I'm aware of and I'm not sure I'd trust a tool like that to get it right. Personally, I'd rather build the sites manually and suffer the loss of time to be sure the site is built exactly as I want it.

I completely agree. The sites we actually care about, we rebuilt from scratch. The remaining few just need to be churned out while keeping the seo juice flowing.

/agree w/ lorax. If your ASP site is not pulling its content from a DB and there are hundreds/thousands of pages, it would be simple to write a PHP or ASP script to scrape the HTML generated by your ASP pages on your old site just to get the content of each page into a separate document so that you could load them into WP. Even this will likely require a lot of scrubbing if you have embedded images, formatting, etc.

But other than that, you're probably better off just starting doing it manually.
