I’m about to say that this is a migration but what I have achieved only is just moving the articles from Xaraya to WordPress. I have to bite the bullet because upgrading to Xaraya 2.0 (Jamaica) is going to take the same effort.
So I decided to focus on articles only together with the related media.
In xaraya, render the page as rss i.e. domain.com/index.php/frontpage/?startnum=1&theme=rss . Download the xml.
In WordPress, use Tools > Import > RSS and then upload the xml from Xaraya.
The following are the plugins that I have used to configure WordPress closer to my previous Xaraya install:
- Login Logout
- Register Plus Redux
- RSS Importer
- Simple User Profile
- WP Hide Dashboard
Lastly, I have applied the 2012 theme that comes in the default install which enabled responsive design.
It’s not a perfect process but this has given me the opportunity to review the site and consolidate things like categories, pages and user management.
