Import Site into WordPress (2 posts)

    I have a bunch of sites that I want to bring into the fold of WordPress and I am looking for an easier way to do it.

    These sites were built with another system and are all .php extension but are essentially static sites. Is there any plugin that will help me automate the work of grabbing the content and importing into WP as posts and pages. I am investigating
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/import-html-pages/ but figured there would be more. I just haven't found them.

    Also is it possible to have permalinks so that my page titles of .php don't have to change?

    What's the problem with the Import HTML Pages plugin? It looks like it will do what you want - why don't you think it will?

    You may be able to set up permalinks to match the old structure - but unless you say what that structure was, it's impossible to tell. The easiest way is with apache .htaccess redirects. The Import HTML Pages plugin page says it even does that for you!
