Volete passare da Weebly a WordPress?

Sì, è possibile migrare tutti i contenuti di Weebly su WordPress senza dover assumere uno sviluppatore o conoscere il codice. Abbiamo creato uno strumento gratuito di importazione da Weebly a WordPress che fa tutto questo per voi.

In questo articolo vi mostreremo come passare correttamente da Weebly a WordPress (passo dopo passo).

Weebly to WordPress

Perché migrare da Weebly a WordPress?

La scelta di WordPress rispetto a Weebly si riduce alla flessibilità e al controllo.

WordPress è il tipo di piattaforma web “tutto-in-uno”. È open-source, il che significa che un’enorme Community di sviluppatori ne migliora costantemente le capacità.

Avete accesso a migliaia di temi e plugin, che vi permettono di scalare e personalizzare il vostro sito a vostro piacimento. Che stiate impostando un semplice blog o un complesso sito di e-commerce, WordPress è in grado di gestire tutto-in-uno.

Weebly è facile da usare ed è l’ideale per creare un sito web in modo rapido e semplice. Tuttavia, è limitato nelle caratteristiche di personalizzazione e non ha tutte le capacità SEO che offre WordPress.

In base alla nostra esperienza, la maggior parte delle persone non sceglie la migliore piattaforma di blog quando inizia. È più probabile che scelga una delle tante soluzioni ospitate, come Weebly, perché ha sentito dire che era facile e gratuita.

Sfortunatamente, a volte WordPress ha una cattiva reputazione e ci sono molti miti su di esso che semplicemente non sono veri.

Una volta che ci si addentra nel mondo del blogging e si impara a conoscere il SEO, la monetizzazione, la personalizzazione e così via, si ha quel momento “oops” in cui ci si rende conto di aver fatto la scelta sbagliata.

Si scopre che WordPress è davvero il miglior sistema di gestione dei contenuti in circolazione.

Ed è allora che si inizia a farsi prendere dal panico, perché non si vuole che il proprio duro lavoro vada sprecato.

Non preoccupatevi, non è così. Abbiamo aiutato centinaia di persone a passare da Weebly a WordPress. Non è necessario conoscere il codice. Se siete in grado di seguire le indicazioni e di fare clic, potete passare il vostro sito Weebly a WordPress.

Sì, ci vorrà circa un’ora per migrare correttamente da Weebly a WordPress, ma ne vale la pena.

Offerta gratuita: Poiché molti di voi ce lo hanno chiesto, ora offriamo il servizio di migrazione gratuita da Weebly a WordPress come parte del nostro servizio gratuito di configurazione di blog WordPress. Ciò significa che uno dei membri del nostro team di esperti eseguirà l’intera migrazione per voi (100% gratuita). Sì, potete letteralmente passare da Weebly a WordPress senza alcun rischio.

Tuttavia, se vi piace imparare e fare le cose da soli, potete seguire la nostra guida passo-passo qui sotto.

Pronti? Iniziamo.

Se non vi piacciono le esercitazioni video o volete procedere al vostro ritmo, continuate a leggere le istruzioni qui sotto.

Passo 1: Iniziare

Per avviare un blog WordPress, sono necessarie due cose:

  • Un nome di dominio (è il nome del vostro blog, ad esempio wpBeginner.com)
  • Un account di web hosting (è il luogo in cui il vostro sito web vive su internet)

Mentre WordPress è gratuito, il dominio e l’hosting web hanno un costo (14,99 dollari all’anno per il dominio e 7,99 dollari al mese per l’hosting web).

Fortunatamente, Bluehost, un fornitore ufficiale di hosting raccomandato da WordPress, ha accettato di offrire ai nostri utenti un nome di dominio gratuito e oltre il 73% di sconto sull’hosting web.

Se, per qualche motivo, desiderate altre opzioni, potete consultare il nostro elenco delle migliori società di hosting WordPress.

Dopo aver configurato il dominio e l’hosting, il passo successivo è l’installazione di WordPress. Abbiamo una guida passo passo su come installare WordPress.

Una volta terminata l’installazione di WordPress, si è pronti a passare alla fase successiva, che consiste nello spostare i contenuti di Weebly su WordPress.

Fase 2: Esportazione del contenuto del sito web Weebly

In passato, era troppo difficile per gli utenti passare da Weebly a WordPress perché non era facile esportare i dati da Weebly.

Abbiamo deciso di risolvere questo problema e abbiamo sviluppato un importatore gratuito da Weebly a WordPress.

È uno strumento online gratuito che importa i contenuti da Weebly e li converte in un formato di importazione compatibile con WordPress. Non apporta alcuna modifica al vostro sito Weebly esistente, quindi è perfettamente sicuro da usare.

Andate sul sito Weebly to WordPress Importer e inserite l’URL del vostro sito Weebly.

Weebly to WordPress Importer

Vi verrà chiesto di fornire il vostro nome e indirizzo email e di selezionare un formato di esportazione.

L’opzione predefinita è il formato WXR, da non modificare a meno che non si verifichi un problema in seguito.

Successivamente, è necessario scegliere se includere le pagine nel file di esportazione. L’opzione predefinita è “Sì” e non è necessario modificarla, a meno che non si voglia esportare le pagine di Weebly.

Successivamente, è necessario fare clic sul pulsante “Esporta il mio sito web Weebly”.

Weebly to WordPress Importer ora recupera i contenuti dal vostro sito Weebly e li converte in un file di esportazione compatibile con WordPress.

Download your Weebly export file

Verrà visualizzato un pulsante per scaricare il file di esportazione di Weebly. È necessario fare clic con il tasto destro del mouse su di esso e selezionare “Salva link con nome” dal menu.

Questo scaricherà il file export.xml sul computer.

Passo 3: Importare il contenuto di Weebly in WordPress

Ora che i contenuti di Weebly sono in un formato compatibile con WordPress, è il momento di importarli in WordPress.

Accedere all’area di amministrazione e andare alla pagina Strumenti ” Importazione.

Verrà visualizzato un elenco di importatori disponibili per diverse piattaforme. È necessario scorrere fino a WordPress e fare clic sul link “Installa ora”.

Install WordPress importer

A questo punto WordPress recupererà il plugin importatore e lo installerà sul vostro sito WordPress senza ricaricare la pagina.

Una volta installato, è necessario fare clic su “Run Importer” per avviarlo.

Run WordPress importer

In questo modo si accede alla pagina dell’importatore di WordPress. Fate clic sul pulsante “Scegli file” per selezionare il file export.xml scaricato in precedenza.

Quindi, fare clic sul pulsante “Carica file e importa” per continuare.

L’importatore di WordPress caricherà e analizzerà il file di esportazione. Nella schermata successiva, vi chiederà di assegnare gli autori.

Import authors and media attachments

È possibile importare un autore dal proprio sito Weebly, creare un nuovo autore o assegnare tutti i contenuti all’utente WordPress esistente.

Non dimenticate di selezionare la casella accanto all’opzione “Scarica e importa file allegati”. In questo modo, le immagini del vostro sito Weebly verranno recuperate nella libreria multimediale di WordPress, in modo da poterle utilizzare in seguito.

Ora è possibile fare clic sul pulsante di invio per eseguire l’importatore. WordPress importerà ora il contenuto del file di esportazione nel database di WordPress. Cercherà anche di recuperare le immagini linkate alle pagine e ai post del vostro blog Weebly.

Al termine, verrà visualizzato un messaggio di successo.

Successfully imported Weebly data into WordPress

Congratulazioni, avete importato con successo i contenuti dal vostro blog Weebly a WordPress. Ora potete andare ai post, alle pagine e alle categorie nell’area di amministrazione di WordPress per vedere se tutti i vostri contenuti sono presenti. Inoltre, controllate la libreria multimediale per vedere le immagini importate dal vostro sito Weebly.

Se il processo di importazione fallisce a metà, è sempre possibile eseguirlo di nuovo. L’importatore è abbastanza intelligente da rilevare i contenuti duplicati e saltarli. Importerà solo i contenuti che non sono stati importati con successo nel tentativo precedente.

Passo 4: Impostazione dei reindirizzamenti

Se si utilizzava un dominio personalizzato sul proprio sito Weebly (come yoursite.com), è necessario farlo puntare al proprio provider di hosting WordPress.

Per prima cosa, è necessario accedere al proprio account Weebly e andare alla pagina dei domini. Fate clic sul nome di dominio che desiderate modificare e poi, nella pagina delle impostazioni del dominio, fate clic sul pulsante “Cambia” accanto all’opzione Nameservers.

Nella schermata successiva, è necessario inserire i nameserver del nuovo host WordPress. Per Bluehost, questi sono ns1.bluehost.com e ns2.bluehost.com.

Changing name servers

Fare clic sul pulsante “Salva” per memorizzare le impostazioni.

Le modifiche al server dei nomi possono richiedere un po’ di tempo per propagarsi su Internet. Una volta che le modifiche avranno effetto, i visitatori inizieranno a vedere il vostro sito WordPress.

Se si utilizza un URL di sottodominio sul proprio sito Weebly (come http://example.weebly.com), ecco come impostare il reindirizzamento.

Accedere alla dashboard di Weebly e modificare il sito web. Successivamente, è necessario fare clic su Impostazioni e poi sulla scheda SEO.

Subdomain redirect

Ora, scorrere fino all’opzione Codice intestazione e aggiungere questa riga di codice:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://www.yourdomain.com/">

Sostituite yourdomain.com con il nome di dominio del vostro nuovo sito WordPress.

Non dimenticate di fare clic sui pulsanti “Salva” e “Pubblica” per salvare le modifiche.

Ora potete visitare il vostro sito Weebly, che verrà aggiornato e reindirizzato al vostro sito WordPress.

Passo 5: Impostazione dei permalink

Il vostro sito Weebly potrebbe avere una struttura URL diversa per i post e le pagine del blog. In genere, si tratta di qualcosa di simile:

Per i post del blog: http://example.com/blog/your-post-title/
Per le pagine: http://example.com/page-title.html

Se si utilizzava un dominio personalizzato sul proprio sito Weebly, gli utenti che visitano un post sul vecchio blog Weebly vedranno un errore 404.

Ecco come assicurarsi che gli utenti siano reindirizzati al post corretto.

È necessario visitare la pagina Impostazioni ” Permalinks. Scorrere verso il basso e selezionare l’opzione “Struttura personalizzata”, quindi aggiungere /blog/%postname% nel campo di testo accanto.

Permalinks

Non dimenticate di fare clic sul pulsante “Salva modifiche” per aggiornare i permalink.

Ora è necessario aggiungere .html alla fine degli URL delle pagine di WordPress.

È necessario installare e attivare il plugin Add Any Extension to Pages. Per maggiori dettagli, consultate la nostra guida passo-passo su come installare un plugin di WordPress.

Dopo l’attivazione, è necessario visitare Impostazioni ” Aggiungi qualsiasi estensione alle pagine. È sufficiente inserire .html nelle impostazioni del plugin e fare clic sul pulsante “Aggiorna impostazioni”.

Add .html to pages in WordPress

Ora è necessario visitare la pagina Impostazioni ” Permalinks e cliccare sul pulsante Salva modifiche per aggiornare la struttura dei permalink.

Fase 6: Risoluzione dei problemi

Ecco alcune cose di cui potreste aver bisogno dopo aver trasferito il vostro sito da Weebly a WordPress.

1. Importazione o sostituzione di immagini

WordPress cercherà di importare le immagini dal sito web di Weebly a WordPress durante l’importazione. Tuttavia, se le immagini non vengono scaricate nella libreria dei media, è necessario importarle. Per istruzioni dettagliate passo dopo passo, consultate la nostra guida su come importare immagini esterne in WordPress.

2. Correzione degli errori in WordPress

Se dopo il trasferimento si verificano alcuni errori sul sito WordPress, consultate la nostra guida definitiva sugli errori comuni di WordPress e su come risolverli.

3. Cose da fare dopo l’installazione di WordPress

Se tutto è andato bene, sarete pronti a personalizzare il vostro nuovo sito web e a sfruttare l’enorme flessibilità di WordPress. Consultate il nostro elenco di cose importanti da fare dopo l’installazione di WordPress.

    Any tips on exporting pages that are visible only to certain members or member groups in Weebly? There are about 100 I need to move over to WordPress but they are not visible unless viewed by a logged in member who has access to those pages.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      The export file should include any hidden pages unless Weebly has changed their export rules.

  3. herve says

    Hi,
    I’ve recently needed to export several weebly’s websites but I think they’re too big. Every time I request an export, I get a 504 – Gateway Timeout.
    Is there another solution or alternative?
    Thanks,
    Rv

  4. Sarah Jayne says

    I just want to clarify something – does this move a full website or just the blog? I have my website and blog on Weebly and I want to move it to WordPress.

  5. shlomo says

    Hi, when I run the importer I get this message:
    Could not find any content in your weebly blog to export. Did you enter the correct URL?

    If I enter my domain name directly into my web browser it does take me to my website. I would appreciate any help in how can I resolve this?

    Thanks

    • WPBeginner Support says

      No specific theme needs to be used on WordPress to import your content, the theme used is based on personal preference.

      Admin

  6. Lindsey says

    Helpful. If I’m transfering my domain from Weebly to create a new WP site through BlueHost, do I need to wait for the domain transfer to complete fully (could take 3-10 days) before completing the steps provided? TIA.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You can create a site on a temporary domain on BlueHost and once your domain is transferred you can update the domain. That would allow you to start working on it before the transfer is complete.

    Hi I have a client with a Weebly site that has an eccomerce setup (products, a shopping cart, etc.). Would this solution work for a site like that?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Sadly, at the moment we do not have a recommended method for easily transferring e-commerce data from Weebly

      Admin

  8. Jordan Eagle says

    I’m pretty much the novice blogger verbatim who started on Weebly and wants to move over to WordPress. This blog was super helpful in transferring media, text, and most content from blog posts and pages on my Weebly blog. I, too, received the error from their exporter:
    “Could not find any content in your weebly blog to export. Did you enter the correct URL? Go Back”
    I was able to get one complete export.xml file in a handful of failed attempts on the exporter. However, I contact WPBeginner support and within 12 hours they had done the export themselves and set along the export file.

    Would definitely recommend using this for an easy transfer.

  9. ZP says

    I am helping a non profit migrate their site, but we are not sure if the blog posts will transfer along with all the other site content. Does anyone know? Thanks.

  10. Zhivko G. says

    Hi,
    I am also trying to migrate my Weebly site to WP, and I keep getting the message “Could not find any content in your weebly blog to export. Did you enter the correct URL?”. I disabled the SSL, but it is of no use: I tried several times, waited for minutes, but still no effect. Can something be done? Thanks.

  11. Mark Bolmida says

    I’d like to move a well established (12 years) Weebly site to WordPress. It ranks well for my industry and I don’t want the move to affect my SEO in a negative way. Will it? I’m hoping with the more tools available in WordPress I can make my site better and make ranking even better.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      There should not be a major change in your SEO if you move the site and set up your redirect properly.

      Admin

  12. Bjorn Yourey says

    Hi, Before I do this just curious to know will my contact forms, background images get transferred as well or its just strictly content which gets transferred from weebly to wordpress?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      It would depend on how the images are added but it would be best to expect only the content will be transferred.

      Admin

      • Bjorn Yourey says

        thank you so much for your reply, should i follow the same methods to get it migrated from weebly to the weebly in siteground? I just signed up on their site and just about to migrate from weebly to wordpress for 1 site, but also wanted to know if i should follow the same instructions for weebly to weebly platform in siteground, thanks again for your help.

        • WPBeginner Support says

          At the moment we do not have a guide for moving a Weebly site, if you reach out to SiteGround they should be able to help with that.

  13. JOE says

    When I try to export the weebly site I only get this error message,

    please help.

    Will this work for transferring a Weebly eComm site to a WordPress site integrated with WooCommerce?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      It should work for transferring your site content but you would need to recreate your product pages.

      Admin

  16. Clint Holden says

    Would I be better to wait to export from weebly until I have beaver builder installed or does it matter

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You can export from Weebly at any point and adding your content would give you something to style on your new site as well :)

      Admin

  17. Ian Dunn says

    I also got the “Could not find any content …” error, but it was because I had a custom domain setup.

    To get it to work, I had to add a “{site-name}.weebly.com” subdomain, and then enter that address into the tool.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Thank you for letting us know about that issue, we’ll be sure to look into possible reasons why it could have happened :)

  18. Danielle says

    Hello! I’ve been trying to use your plugin to convert my weebly site to WordPress, but it times out every time. What can I do to fix this? I have high speed internet, but I’m wondering if my site is too big…?

  19. Linda says

    Hello. I finally took the plunge and transferred my weebly site to wordpress. I put it off because I thought it would be a nightmare and complicated. Decided the time was now as my site looked very outdated and was losing ranking. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! I needed to turn off SSL (and then back on again) for it to work.

    Thank you all so much for offering this free service!

    Happy New Year and I wish you all the very best.

    Hi I am just beginning this process and understand I transfer the nameservers as the final step, but I can’t seem to find on my weebly

    ‘Click on the domain name that you want to edit and then on domain settings page click on the change button next to nameservers option’

    I go into the weebly site I want to move over, click on settings and within those no options for nameservers, am I looking in the right place?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Did you purchase your domain name from another location? That could be why the option is not in Weebly

      Admin

  21. Noelle says

    Hi, I am wanting to transfer my weebly posts to WordPress. I am interested in following this information to transfer my weebly site to WordPress but I am lacking tech and coding skills. If I go through with the import do I then crest more content through weebly or WordPress? Does it completely get rid of weebly. I purchased my domain through weebly I believe

    • WPBeginner Support says

      If you wanted to transfer the site then you would create your new content on the new WordPress site after following the tutorial. This guide will redirect users to your new site using WordPress but you will still have access to the Weebly content from your admin end.

      Admin

  22. Susan says

    Hi, this may be a basic question but I like the look of my website on Weebly. Does the transfer keep the framework and look of the website? Or does it mean I have to find a new wordpress template to display the content.

    Thanks

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would need to find a new theme for your site as it does not transfer the look of your site. There are page builder plugins you can use to recreate your current design if you wanted.

      Admin

  23. Chris says

    Hi, great article. Do you have a tool like this but for migrations other than Weebly? I built a landing page on a third-party service, but would now like to duplicate it in my wordpress site. It’s just one page. Ideas?

  24. Sakthi says

    I need to import my website which has nearly 400 blog post. Your tools is loading and throwing an error at the end as technical difficulties.

  25. admin says

    We used your tool to export blog data from Weebly and then import into WordPress. It seemed to work fine but with one major exception: the blog titles did not import.

    Do you have advice on a fix? Should we try to import again (over existing blog data) or manually enter all the titles to each blog post (about 120 blog posts)?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You may want to try recreating the export file to ensure it didn’t have a hiccup and then reimporting.

      Admin

  26. Bill says

    So, what if the Weebly site is one of the ones that are offered through HostGator and the WordPress I want to use is also on HostGator. Will the tool work in that instance?

  27. Chris says

    I read through the article, and noticed you hadn’t addressed comments. Do the comments also get imported, through the Weebly default comment box. Or is that one of the things the importer doesn’t do?

    It’s important for me to know, as I recently signed up with Weebly and didn’t realise how lame their comments section for blogs were. I’m deciding whether I should use Disqus instead of the default – as it seems to have more options, as far as commenting goes. But I wouldn’t switch, if I knew the WP importer, could only import my default comments. If at all???

  28. Sam Morgan says

    Hi there. I first want to say that I used this guide successfully to move from weebly to wordpress (after disabling ssl to export weebly data), so thanks!
    I have a domain related question.

    I told bluehost that I own my domian ieltstutors.org, though Im building my wordpress site on a temp domain given by bluehost.

    Am I right in saying that after I have finish building my WP site, all I need to do is change my weebly nameservers to bluehost? Do I then just go to bluehost and press “transfer to bluehost”?

    Is there a way to do this so that the site doesn’t go down?

    Thanks for all your help!

  29. Carlos says

    I’m having issues downloading the WXR version of my Weebly site. I’m getting the “Could not find any content in your Weebly blog to export. Did you enter the correct URL?” Message.

    Am I missing something? It’s a full website I want to migrate, no blog attached to it. Could that be the reason I’m getting an error? I’m looking to move a few sites any insight would great.

  30. Denise says

    If I already have a Weebly site with a domain through Bluehost, is switching it to WordPress easier? At one point my website was giving a large error and the site was unaccesible because both Weebly and WordPress were trying to work on the website at the same time. We changed to Weebly for simplicity, but now I would really like to move us to WordPress so that we have the ability to customize far more than what we have right now.

    Thanks!

    Hi there! Thanks for the informative post!

    I’m trying to use the weeblytowp for my client’s site but the result keeps saying “there is no content on this website”.

    I’m confused because there is over 4 years of blog posts I’m trying to transfer over.

    Can you help?

  32. Sophie says

    Hi there! What if I have bought my domain through Weebly and I want to keep this same domain with my new wordpress site? I’m not whether or not to tell bluehost I “have a domain” already or not, because I no longer want to be affiliated with Weebly at all, but I want my same domain name and it’s through them. Completely lost at how I should go about this. Thanks for the help!

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would let BlueHost know you already have a domain and then you would transfer your domain to BlueHost once you are ready :)

      Admin

    • WPBeginner Support says

      It would be for if you have pages, posts to not end in .html but any pages you had on Weebly would need the .html added to prevent errors with redirection.

      Admin

  33. Jacky says

    Thank you for this great tutorial. When I click on Domains, I don’t see the screen Edit Nameservers. Is it because my domain is with GoDaddy? In that case, would I have to edit that on GoDaddy? Thank you so much!

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Hi Jacky,

      Correct, if you purchased your domain through another registrar such as GoDaddy then you would need to edit the nameservers through them rather than Weebly :)

      Admin

      • Jacky says

        Thank you! I have my blog with weebly using my .com domain. When you say transfer files, does that deactivate the weebly site or is it just just a copy of the files? I mean I want to copy the weebly files to wp, but i want to leave my weebly site live while i build the new wp. Once i finish building it, then i’ll move my domain to wp.

        • WPBeginner Support says

          It creates copies of your content, it does not remove your content :)

    • WPBeginner Support says

      We will certainly take a look for any errors that could be causing this with the exporter.

      Admin

    • WPBeginner Support says

      With any domain registrar, you would need to wait 60 days from when it is first purchased. After that, you would need to reach out to Weebly for their specifics

      Admin

  34. Jessica says

    This did nothing for me. After importing to wordpress, nothing has changed on it. Stock site still in effect.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Hi Jessica,

      When you are logged into WordPress admin dashboard, can you see your imported content under posts or pages? If you cannot then this mean that importer didn’t run or it didn’t find any content to import.

      Admin

  35. Carissa says

    After clicking the ‘Export my Weebly Website’ button, it changes to ‘Generating Export File’. On the bottom left side of my screen ways it says, ‘Waiting for weeblytowp.com’. After a few minutes, I get a message that says ‘504 Gateway Time-Out’. Is this because my Weebly site is too large? Or do you think this could be a technical difficulty?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Hi Carissa,

      This could be due to a large site. You can try again in a few mins. If it still doesn’t work then try to save some of your Weebly content as Drafts and then try to export.

      Admin

      • Carissa says

        That’s what I was afraid you were going to say. Unfortunately, the bulk of the content are pages which you can’t put into draft mode on Weebly (that I’m aware of). Do you have a link that I can pay someone to do this for me? I don’t care about making it pretty (I can do that), I just need to download the Weebly site. I hope this question makes sense? :-)

  36. Ashley says

    Thanks for the guide and tool. I’m trying to export a Weebly blog and am getting the ‘no content’ error message. I’ve disabled SSL in the Weebly editor which seems to have taken a while to take place, but I am now able to access the site via http only. However still no luck exporting the site. Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

    I spoke with Weebly today and asked them if it was possible to transfer a site to WP, just in case we wanted to switch down the road….. They said no :-P haha

    I have a domain that I purchased through Weebly, and I have designed a new site with wordpress.org.. and now I can’t figure out how to use my weebly domain for my wordpress site. The Weebly people said I need the DNS… I don’t know what that is

      Hi Rachel,

      Your new host where you are hosting WordPress.org will provide you DNS server details. They usually look like this:

      ns1.yourhost.com
      ns2.yourhost.com

      Once you know what DNS servers are used by your host, you can edit your domain settings in Weebly and point it to your new host.

    Hello,
    I have been trying to transfer my Weebly blog to WordPress. I keep getting the error message “Could not find any content in your weebly blog to export. Did you enter the correct URL?” I have retried the transfer at least 100 times in the past day and a half. Still no luck. Any suggestions?

    I am trying to follow the video, but my Bluehost dashboard doesn’t look anything like the one pictured. I can’t figure out how to install WordPress! Do you have any suggestions? I can’t seem to go any further because I can’t figure out how to do that step.

    WOW! I was dreading the prospect of recreating my Weebly website in WordPress … and now I don’t have to do it! Thank you so much for this nifty little tool. After a couple of false starts, it ripped right through its tasks, and I’m done! So very cool …

    Hey, so I built my site, free in Weebly, and have my bluehost account. I tried using your importer but the URL Weebly provided is HTTPS not HTTP…. is that because I didn’t purchase anything from Weebly? When I run the importer tool it says that it can’t find any content on the weebly URL.

    So appreciate your advice on this!

    Hi, I am extracting my weebly site from ipage, which seemed to work, then imported it to wordpress following the instructions, but I can’t see it to see what it looks like. The home button at the top of the dashboard says ss_site_title when I click on it, it goes to the weebly site, how do I see what the wordpress looks like before I make it live?

      Hi Karin,

      We are not sure what you mean. If you have successfully imported your Weebly content in WordPress, you will see it under ‘Posts’. It is possible that your domain name is still pointing to your Weebly website. In that case, you will need to change your domain name settings from your Weebly account and point it to your iPage hosting account by changing the DNS server settings.
