Large static site: want to move top pages to WP while keeping the rest (1 post)

    I am less than a newbie, but considering WordPress. I have a fundamental question before I even decide to make the move. Reading scores of introductory tutorials has not answered it.

    My organization's site has been around since 1996 and has thousands of static pages that I want to keep. What was once news is now our history.

    However, I see the value of WordPress. I would like to replace our most visited pages, including the home page, with WordPress managed pages, while keeping the thousands of static sites in place, preferably at the same URLs. I am willing to leave the older pages out of the navigation bars and rely on links within the new WordPress-managed pages or search.

    Could you tell me whether this is practical? Is it foolish to contemplate?

    Thanks so much for helping me get started.
