How to export Confluence content to WordPress?




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?

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.
