Hey everyone, I was wondering if there is any plugin or add-on to help me move everything on my site, currently running on WordPress (self-hosted) to Discourse - entirely. This means that the site is no longer powered by WP but Discourse. I really like this platform and was hoping I could use it for my main site.
Note: I’m not looking for a WP & Discourse integration. If it’s possible to transfer from WP to Discourse will my old urls will redirect to new url (301 redirect) so that it doesn’t hurt my SEO and visits. Thanks
Discourse is a discussion forum. Wordpress can be a blog or a more general content management system. The plugin I mentioned let’s you create a blog that runs on Discourse. As of last time I looked, it is not a point and click process and requires programming ability for any customization.
You’re not getting useful answers because wordpress can be used for many things (blogs, ecommerce, product sites, news portals, etc) and without seeing your site or knowing what it does, it’s hard to give good advice. Perhaps you could share a link?
Turn off feed polling and retire your wordpress site.
If your wordpress site is something like http://techcrunch.com/ or a product or company site where the ability to create pages with arbitrary urls with arbitrary content via a point and click interface is important discourse isn’t going to work very well.
