WordPress Migration Tips and Tricks
WordPress Conversion is, in general, a tricky subject - conversion to WordPress makes a perfect sense for few sites while it doesn't for others. 1) Don't rush into your 'Expression Engine to WordPress' project without proper evaluation. It is important that your existing assets (such as SEO, Content, Functionality) are transferred effectively. 2) Choose WordPress Conversion Expert wisely - few 'Experts!' out there just copy paste the existing site into WordPress, without centralizing the control to the WordPress dashboard.
