Support » Fixing WordPress » Having trouble converting site to WordPress

  • So I am trying to take an existing web site ( and “import” it into WordPress. I am doing so for a friend, who wants the design of the website (which they paid for) to be preserved. I have tried quite a few options:

    Creating a theme (no matter what, always get an error about style.css not containing a valid theme header)

    Inserting HTML into a static page

    and now I’ve given the Headway theme a try.

    With Headway I can “recreate” the entire website, however it seems as if I’m going to have to tear about the existing code to match the website exactly. Most of the pages on the site are .php and I do not have much experience with such. However a few years back I was very well versed in HTML and CSS.

    The website also has a Nivo Slider slideshow that needs to be recreated from the jQuery version to the WP equiv.

    If anyways could help me with this project I would GREATLY appreciate it.
