Hi Glen,

Seems like this website is using WP. Replacing a CMS is a very broad question and would call for your definition and scope of replacement.

Replacement will involve.

  1. Purchasing Kentico license.
  2. Migrating current data in Kentico acceptable structure through ETL process.
  3. Getting themes in Kentico.
  4. Building any contact us forms through Kentico.
  5. Adding in any custom code through JS.

This is very very high level.

Thanks, Chetan

Chetan, thanks a lot for this answer. I realized that it is very important to determine the CMS before the development of the site, depending on the tasks of the site and that moving the site to another CMS is more difficult than creating a new one.

Glen:

It appears you might be spamming the system with yet another attempt to get your "essay writing" services noticed? If not, please accept my apologies. If so, kindly don't do it again.

If this is not a spam request.

I have had been able to take a few WordPress sites to Kentico. It was not as hard as you think. Using a good export tool that will allow you to get the page content out to a Pipe Delimited file was step 1. Then import data into SQL server to do some bulk clean up. Use the very powerful Kentico Import Manager and SQL Query to import structure to mimic the folder structure of the old site. Then import the BLOG POST under that structure using a dynamic node value to place the items in the right place.

All WordPress Pages then were imported as SIMPLE template pages.

The last site I did was 1500 blog post. Took about 1 day of time, but the client is very happy. Before they had to make sure they did their Wordpress upgrades every week or they may get hacked. No more fighting overlapping plugins. YOAST Plugin has universally been the only complaint after going from WP to Kentico for business customers.
