Hi @andrina 

 

Its properly not the right place to ask for assistance setting up a Wordpress site, you might want to go to a Wordpress community for assistance with that :-)

There a few ways to integrate wordpress. One is extension by Fishpig or custom integration which allows you to use magento code inside wordpress.

Hi andrina

 

I would not recommend converting a Magento ecommerce website to Wordpress as the later is based on CMS technology. If you want to integrate ecommerce functionality to the website then magento is the best answer.

 

However, I suggest you consult a professional ecommerce developer or company. You may also contact an agency who has expertise in both; Magento ecommerce as well as wordpress technologies. They may be able to provide you the best solution.

I don't think you can "convert" it. They're different platforms, so someone will have to build the new site. They could design the new site to look like the old one, but they'll have to redevelop it on the new platform.

 

Actually, it's usually a disaster when business owners try to "convert" an old website - better to start over and build the site you want. Plus if you haven't redeveloped for a few years, there are a lot of new things to consider for mobile and tablet. 

 

I use magento and wordpress side by side. My main site is Magento for eccommerce and users can click a link to see the wordpress site. They can click to go back and shop with magento - it's all pretty seamless. My developer made the templates look similar, so it all looks like 1 website.

Once you convert it more likely that you will lose ranks as the URL structure will change. As the matter of fact Magento is best for eCommerce retail shops. If you are not specialist then I would recomend you to not do this by yourself, Hire a development agency to transfer tthis for you.
