Migrating a tutorials site to wordpress (4 posts)

    I run a web site which is mainly a database of tutorials ordered in many ways (popularity, alphabetically, date, etc.) I also publish static pages with promotions and advertising. But it is mainly a database driven site.
    Can I migrate this site to be managed by WordPress?
    Thanks in advance.

    Probably, but without knowing more it'll be hard to say for sure.

    WordPress allows posts to live in multiple categories; and plugins exist to use tags instead of (or in conjunction with) categories. WordPress supports static pages.

    Thanks for your reply. WordPress fits fine my needs, except for one thing. I have a database of tutorials that have many fields (author, description, editors pick, date, keywords, image, clicks, link, is external, is internal, etc) but when I look at the admin screens of WordPress, I see only three or four fields. So, if that is fixed, then there is no way I can do that.
    Am I mistaken? Is there a way of changing the database fields?

    There are custom fields that can be defined by the individual user.
