Welcome to Netlify Community!

This Post is similar to another one with in-depth responses so give this a quick read through.


Netlify deploys static sites, this means dynamic sites like Wordpress sites cannot be deployed by Netlify. If you want to learn about the difference between these two then here is a good article.

The only way you could ‘convert’ a site to even be deployed by Netlify is by re-building it with a ssg and then add Netlify CMS to it by following this guide.

In my opinion, your best bet is to use a Netlify Template with Netlify CMS and just transfer the content from your current site over.

@sajobe What @kylesloper said, plus:

This is a very long-answer question. If you have to ask how to get from WordPress to a static site on Netlify, you are probably not going to be able to make the transition for any but the most simple website.
