  20. 20. So what to do?
  21. 21. Wordpress?
  22. 22. Pros • Security - better than what I had • PHP-based • Responsive themes • Plugins! • Better admin UX - including ACL & versioning • Less friction to update
  23. 23. Cons • Security - WordPress is a big target • Learning curve • Migration effort • Ego - would using WordPress make me look like a n00b?
  24. 24. Concerns • How to organise the site? How much of the cross-referencing to automate? “This has to be a solved problem, right?” • 20 years of inbound links and PageRank to preserve • Hard-coded HTML styles in the DB to clean up
  25. 25. The Plan • Set up site on new host • Create basic site structure • Read up on security • VaultPress & Wordfence • Auto-updates • Set up child theme and create nav menu • Start migrating content
  26. 26. Migration • Start with simplest pages and sections first • Write functions where needed • Required some plugins: • Advanced Custom Fields • Add Categories to Pages • WP Gallery Custom Links…
  27. 27. More Plugins • Breadcrumbs -> Breadcrumb NavXT plugin • Calendar -> My Calendar plugin • Trivia Quizzes -> Riddle Quiz And Survey Master • Polls -> WP-Polls plugin • Search -> Relevanssi plugin • Timeline -> ???
  28. 28. Final Steps • Migrate all old news/blog posts • Set up Adsense and Analytics • Update the theme • Set up .htaccess redirects • Change DNS to point to the new site!
  29. 29. Stats
  30. 30. Money Stuff
  31. 31. What’s Next • Set up SSL • Mop up broken links • Add new content • Update design once illustrations are finished • Keep an eye on stats & revenue
  32. 32. Building Sites that Last • Own your stuff - but syndicate where needed • Don’t change your URLs • Avoid proprietary enhancements - stick with standards • PROVIDE GOOD CONTENT
  33. 33. Thanks! @RoaldDahlFans roalddahlfans.com Kris Howard @web_goddess web-goddess.org
