Transfering HTML site to WordPress (3 posts)

    Hello Everyone,
    I would much like to transfer a website I made in Dreamweaver to WordPress. I have looked up many tutorials and blogs for days now and I still have some unresolved issues. Right now, I have WordPress installed and Im working with a local host server, Im using WAMP.
    For that reason, I can't provide a link to it.

    As suggested in this blog post http://www.cybercoded.net/convert-static-html-site-to-wordpress-easily/
    I have taken the index.html and changed it to home.php. That page is showing when I hit view site.
    I have imported the rest of my Html pages using and page import plugin.
    I am currently struggling with:
    -Applying the CSS to the imported pages, as a result
    -Some Images links are broken, (the CSS related ones)
    -and the pages are not linking together

    I assume the latter one is because of the permalinks settings. I am not to sure how to set it up properly because I'm creating a new website for an existing one.

    I am new with wordpress, if there is some missing information or if this is not making sense please let me know. I can't wait to have this set up.
    Thanks in advance for all of your time and suggestions.

    Ohh boy! ,you have a long way to go, try and read some more blogs on "how to build wordpress themes"
    you need a header.php,index.php, page.php,single and maybe function.php
    I'll advice you to start with a blank theme, something like http://undercore.me . The just slap your styles on there.
    Good luck

    Hi there thank for your reply!
    I ended up getting a blank theme and entering my content in posts via the Text view. With the help of .html on PAGES plugging to keep my links. I looks exactly like it did when I made it.
