TL:DR

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.
