Existing Site -- WP as CMS -- HELP! (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I've been doing a lot of reading on using WordPress as a CMS. I want to use it to manage all of the content on my existing site (www.adamstorr.com) which is completely dynamic and written in PHP.

    Do I have to recreate my pages or can I just connect WordPress to my existing MySQL database and have all of my current posts show up in the Admin panel?

    Thanks for all of the help!

    Short answer: Probably not.

    You'll need to recreate all of your pages within WordPress unless you are currently using one of the content publishing platforms that WordPress can import from.
