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.

    Hi Ken - there are ways to export data from Craft CMS and I am sure there are ways to import data in Wordpress. But think very very very carefully about this - if you do some research you will see CraftCMS is a very highly respected system, and there is a significant flow of folks FROM Wordpress TO Craft, and probably, for good reason, not many going back the other way. Perhaps it's time to embrace change and learn a more modern, vastly better engineered system? Jun 21, 2019 at 0:18
  • did you figure this out? Sorry to revive an old thread but I'm looking to do exactly this... Mar 2, 2020 at 12:04

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:
