Migrating image-heavy blog to Webflow CMS from Wordpress


#1

Hi folks,

I’m finally getting around to considering migrating my wordpress blog over to Webflow’s CMS. But I’m a little nervous to get started. I’ve been watching and reading all sorts of content about migration, but I keep coming across things saying I have to manually upload all of my images in my individual blog posts.

Per this workshop video at 55:47:

Which seems more than a little daunting because:

  1. My blog is a photography blog, and therefore has very image-intensive blog posts
  2. The way my current blog is structured, all of those images have been added in what webflow would refer to as rich text.
  3. So does this mean I have to individually upload each and every single image from my old wordpress blog? If so, I can only imagine this might take me AGES to complete because I think I’ve got something like 9 years worth of posts to migrate. Oof!

Is this information still true? I know @PixelGeek mentioned in the workshop video that there would be a Phase 2 so that all images could be immediately pulled into Webflow. Has Phase 2 been implemented yet?

Thanks!

Hi There - I’m still learning about Webflow myself, and I ran across this on the Wishlist…looks like Assets features like what you are describing are in future plans but not immediately available https://wishlist.webflow.com/ideas/WEBFLOW-I-1001

@matt.bryant - thanks! I think this might be different from importing from a wordpress blog though?

Anyone have any intel based on my original question? Thanks! Still very curious about this.
