I purchased this plug-in last Wednesday and thought I’d add a proper review on it once I’d given it a spin and have to say I put this in the top five best WordPress plug-ins I’ve ever bought, it’s fantastic, what it does is allows you to convert a static HTML website into a WordPress site.
The resulting site on the front end looks identical to the HTML version, but it also allows you to include all the extra attributes of WordPress like widget areas and the functionality of any other plug-ins you may also have installed.
You can also create a WP Template HTML file adding WP title and content tags in the places in the HTML code as per the instructions and you then have a matching page template that you can then create further pages to add to your site using the “Add New” editor directly from the WordPress Dashboard, which means you can pretty much turn most any static HTML website template into a WordPress theme “skin” (custom site design)
Then place it in the root directory of a zip file and then log into your WordPress site and upload it from the control panel of the plug-in and within moments the conversion is all done and the WordPress re-direct pages are all complete and ready to be named and then published with the click of a button,
Or you can just create a single HTML “template” page with the WordPress title, content and any required widget area tags in it to create a theme skin and then create each of your content pages from inside WordPress using the “Add New” feature.
So this is great for converting resale rights HTML mini-sites to WordPress sites, (although you will need to check the rights you have to them if you want to create a template site for other purposes) and for turning your current static HTML sites into interactive, Web2.0 style sites.
I did previously buy another plug-in that coverts HTML pages to WordPress pages using the same methods, but that one only did single pages at a time and you first had to upload the site images individually and then alter the HTML code to include the WordPress linking format, but the WP Static HTML plug-in does all those task for your automatically and handles multiple pages all in one operation.
It’s running on a dime sale in the Special Offers section of the Warrior forum at the moment and the last time I checked it was still under ten bucks so currently almost half the price of the other one so if you’d like to get your hands on this, here’s the link :-
Hope this helps
