Pre-existing pages missing from wordpress (5 posts)

    Hello

    I am having trouble getting WP to see my pre-existing pages. I can create pages and the new pages show up if I type in the url, but the only pages I see are the ones I create within WP. Do I need to copy/paste all the code from each page into a new WP page? Thanks for your help!

    By pre-existing pages, do you mean existing .html files?

    Yes. I created my own .html files using Dreamweaver. I can access the files through the site host (bizland.com), but not through WP. I installed WP via the site host.

    WordPress stores everything in a database and doesn't know anything about the .html files.

    So if you want to manage them with WordPress, you'll have to copy/paste the contents of each .html page into a new WP page.

    Leave out stuff like the <html></html> and <head></head> tags.

    Figured I'd have to do that. Oh well. I wanted to change stuff around anyways so I guess it's all good. Thanks for your help!
