Migrating a tutorials site to wordpress

  • 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.
