WordPress to Webflow migration: What are the steps?
Make a backup of your WordPress website.
Just in case something goes wrong during the migration, you'll have a safety net to fall back on.
Pick your migration method: manual migration, using WordPress plugins, or employing dedicated migration tools.
Each method has its pros and cons, so weigh your options carefully.
Creative Corner tip: If you're not a tech whiz, we recommend using a dedicated migration tool. It's the simplest and most reliable way to migrate your website without any hiccups.
Extract your WordPress content, including pages, posts, images, and other media files.
You can use a WordPress plugin to do this, or you can export your content manually.
Import the exported WordPress content into your Webflow project.
This is the part where your website's new home starts to take shape. Once you've imported your content, you'll be able to start customizing your Webflow website.
Adjust Webflow settings like permalinks, redirects, and SEO settings.
You'll want to make sure that your website functions smoothly and ranks well in search engines.
Test, test, test!
This is probably the most important step. Make sure to test every page, link, and feature on your website to make sure everything is working properly.

Now it's time to make your website look its best. Webflow is a powerful design tool, so you can really let your creativity run wild.
