Hello, I just discovered "Plone" and I'm impressed but also confused.
I use InteractiveTools' "Article Manager" for my web portal (www.deguate.com), which has a little more than 100,000 pages in about 500 categories / sub-categories. I really liked the featured sites made with Plone (especially Discover Magazine) and would like to migrate to Plone.
However, I'm having a difficult time finding documentation about migrating the site. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
My company also offers hosting and website development services to small and medium companies in Guatemala. Seeing that many Brazilian government as well as other renowned international organizations use Plone for their sites, I want to experiment with Plone on my own site in order to be able to broaden my company's service to local big firms and Government institutions.
Funnelweb is a tool built on top of transmogrifier that crawls an existing site and uploads it to plone. It tries to keep the same urls but if it doesn’t it sets redirections up from your old urls to the new ones. It does its best to retain your existing menu structure. You do have to tell it via xpath where your content is in the pages and menus etc.
Of course it only transfers content and images and files and not your site theme, and your site theme may affect SEO too.
There are some enhancements in github that haven’t been released yet though.
