This is a tricky request, because you can only import other Confluence Spaces that were previously exported as XML. There might be some ways to achieve what you are trying to do. Please check this Answer from a different  community thread:


In short: Either you do xml editing or you reach out to a 3rd party vendor to help you with that. 


Have a great day, 



Hi Tibor ,

Thank you for replying.

I have 1000 pages it's too much :( to do that page per page  . so  I have to convert the XML file into a format that confluence will accept do you think that is possible ? i mean is that complecated ? (  I have no knowledge of web )

Do you need all the it all up to date and you want those 1000 pages into your new Confluence space?

I'm guessing I would export the whole website to a static html and set it up somewhere so that it can be accessed if/when needed and start replacing content in my new Confluence space and just referring to the old site as needed.

we did the sorting, we have 800 artciles

Then Matt's solution (below) sounds like a possible option...if nothing else comes forward here :)

I recently did this for my organization, not an easy feat. I ended up writing a web scrapper in Python to read the WordPress content and then made use of Confluence's REST API to re-create the content as a blog posts within Confluence. If the WordPress instance is using extensions such as Visual Composer it make this much more difficult due to having to parse custom tags.
