Can you import an existing website into wordpress to make changes?

Recommended Posts

Im currently using a Linux cPanel on godaddys servers. Like I've previously said Im fairly new with DMS, and Wordpress for that matter. If Ive already had a website built by handcoding, is there a way to import that into DMS and style it from there? and my next question would be, how do you export these out of DMS and put it on another server? Becasue the cPAnel that Im currently using is basically just a work space on godaddys servers. Im going to need to export the websites that I am creating out of DMS and put them into another server. Im really sorry if i did not explain that completely correct but Im hoping that you get the jist of what Im trying to do. Thank you very much!

If you have created a site you could take the various elements of the site and use the html in the text boxes or create you own sections. You could probably recreate the site quite easily in DMS in a small amount of time. 

 

Information on creating sections is here http://docs.pagelines.com/developer/section-api

 

INformation on exporting your DMS sites can be found here http://docs.pagelines.com/configure/global-options

Thank you for the response. It seems that both of those links are corrupt or something. It gives me a 404 error and says that there isn't a GItHub page here.

i just tried it and it did work http://d.pr/i/KT9p

 

try typing into the  address bar docs. pagelines .com (without the spaces) 

 

Actually i said refresh - dont click refresh - press enter on the link address to reload the page 

 

edit: pressing enter definitely does work - i have mentioned this to the forum admin
