We have various clients who already have websites but would like us to optimize them a little bit and set them up on craft.

Is there a more efficient way to do this than just hand coding all of the PHP and blocks for every page to align to be editable on craft?

  • What CMS are they currently using? Or is it just completely custom PHP?

  • Currently no CMS. Just HTML and CSS. Kind of old school.

If you're not already on a CMS, I'd recommend migrating to Craft sooner rather than later. Sounds like you're definitely planning on migrating to Craft, so I see no valuable reason to delay.

Pros of migrating now:

  • Awesome Craft features, like Matrix
  • Plugins
  • Twig

Cons of migrating later:

  • More legacy code to port
  • More legacy data to restructure

You'll notice that both of those lists reinforce the idea of migrating now. ;)
