I have recently discovered our company website is run on Craft CMS. However, I do not like the system and am much more proficient on WordPress. Is there a way to move our site to WordPress without a huge bill or running/migration issues.
It’s likely possible but would be tricky, since Craft has much more flexible content modeling features than WP. It would be a “lossy” conversion process, similar to converting a WAV file to a low bitrate MP3.
The best way to get content out of Craft is probably to use the Element API plugin. I couldn’t tell you how to get that content into WP though – you may have better luck asking about that on https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/.
Before you go down this road, it’s probably worth spending just a bit of time learning Craft CMS. You never know, you might just end up liking it! Here are a few recent articles that compare the two:
