We want to export Confluence content (e.g. pages, attachments, spaces, users, groups and son on) to WordPress.
Is there a solution to achieve it?
Hi! I'm a bit interested in this topic as well. We're trying to achieve the following:
We're building a portal for our clients where we need the following functionality:
- Complete control of layout, menus, images, etc.
- Upload material (that will come from Confluence)
- Publish news, etc
- Track user engagement, which documents are being downloaded, etc.
The way I see it is that we can approach this from two directions and the related problems that I would LOVE your input/help on how to tackle:
1) Build a beautiful website via Wordpress with complete control of the layout and create an automatic connection with Confluence from where we can publish the documents we want to share (needs to be automatic).
Problem: Is there such a feature that I can connect Confluence with the CMS and publish material to a designated space? I've seen one app in the marketplace with bad reviews that can handle wordpress.com but not wordpress.org that we're looking at.
2) Build a website via Confluence that can be hosted on its own.
Problem: I've seen the app Refined in the marketplace but it's price tag of 5,000 - 6,000 $ per year is a bit to much for us. Is there a native way in Confluence to build webpages and publish them and include content from Confluence? I would be able to control not only the specific page layou but also menus, SEO/meta descriptions, install Google analytics, etc.
I would very much appreciate your input and advice which way would be the most feasible without spending money on Refined or similar levels of investment.
Use Scroll Viewport.
It has all the benefits of exporting the Confluence content elsewhere - you can write all your own custom HTML and all the layouts.
It will be much faster than Wordpress as it’s static HTML.
Wordpress is a simple content management system, intended to host and publish content by your authors without making them have to think too hard. Confluence is a wiki, not a simple CMS. Wikis are more powerful than basic CMS's although they fulfil the same basic "host and publish without having to think" functions. Because wikis are more powerful, they tend to have different data structures and functionality, and the export/import/conversion functions for non-wiki systems don't tend to be written.
What are you trying to achieve with your "export to Wordpress"? If we know why you're looking at this transfer, we can probably give you a best path, rather than talk about loads of options.
There's usually two good reasons for it -
You've decided to downgrade from Confluence, losing all the power of a wiki, and just dump things into Wordpress. That's fine, if you're not using the power of a wiki, why bother paying for it, I wouldn't. But it does mean you're going to have to think about what data you are going to have to lose when you move.
You have an internal Confluence, but your public facing stuff is published in Wordpress. Again, nothing wrong with that - a lot of your readers don't need a wiki, they just want to read stuff. This however is something you probably want to automate, not do one-off exports. Again, you'll need to think about what you do and don't want to take across to start with.
