themes – How to transform a custom made static HTML website to a WordPress website
I have an assignment from a customer to transform a custom made static HTML website to a WordPress website.
First I thought “That’s easy, just make a theme & import it all there & link it up”.
But it appears that you can’t use the normal WordPress tools on those theme pages (customer wants this), the theme pages doesn’t show up on the “Pages” in the backed menu, and I also don’t find them in the SQL-database as I do with “normal” WordPress pages, they are just php files in a folder structure on the server.
Am I doing something wrong/missing something? (probably?, What?) (I have added the php get_header() stuff & such, hopefully all of it?).
Or can I do this in some other way? so it becomes a “true” fully functional WordPress page?
Or do I HAVE to rebuild the whole damn webpage inside WordPress itself?
When I’m googling this almost all I find is “make a theme” answers, which I believe is not good enough?
Thanks for any help!
