Import static-site or add Webflow to static site

Hello,

My client who has a static-website(html/css/js) wants to integrate webflow either entirely or as an add-on to their current website.

I have two questions regarding this integration.

  1. Is it possible to migrate the static-website into webflow?
  2. If 1. Is not possible, is it possible to add webflow as a blogging platform onto the current static-website(just like how you can add Wordpress onto a non-wordpress website)?

Thank you

  1. Is it possible to migrate the static-website into webflow?

My understanding is- no. But you can import blocks of HTML. Its pretty quick to mock up a website. I would consider trying it.

  1. If 1. Is not possible, is it possible to add webflow as a blogging platform onto the current static-website(just like how you can add Wordpress onto a non-wordpress website)?
    The short answer is yes.

You can do this by doing one of the following:

  • Putting the blog on a subdomain. (Some say that’s not ideal for SEO.)
  • You can export your site to HTML, and simply upload the HTML to the current site. Say, in the /blog folder.

Your blog pages should all be exported if I understand correctly, based on this:

If you used Webflow’s dynamic Collections, you’ll get one HTML file for each of your Collection Template pages.
