ExpressionEngine Conversions

 
T

here are a number of popular content management systems out there, but when people switch among them and ExpressionEngine is involved, more often than not the direction is towards EE. It’s a daunting task, converting a large site or system with hundreds or thousands of content items into another system, but it’s quite doable.

The processes involved are working out the new architecture, installing and configuring ExpressionEngine, coding new ExpressionEngine templates and testing the whole thing.

Taking us a good chunk of the way are some built-in importing utilities and an Importer add-on.
