How to easily migrate a entire html website to WordPress
  

I have a html site which is based on company profile. There are few more sites on different topics. I hd taken the project to migrate those sites to WordPress. The site owner wants to update thing on the site so that people can keep on filling up things on the same. And that is not possible in html because of static content. But if it is WordPress then people can come and post things which will be really helpful for many to understand and use. I want some way through which I can migrate these site to WordPress automatically.

I am not sure any conversion tool is going to work here. It will far more complicated for you to go with automatic migration. It is essential that you must do that manually. So that you get the actual thing you are looking for. If you try to do that through some automatic tool then the site will not work well. It will crash or be slow. I had seen ample of tools for that. But all those are useless. Just go with the manual stuff. It is not sure that you are going to get exactly the same kind of site. There can be changes in design.

It is not easy. When you try to use some third party plugin the theme is already messed up. Most of the plugin are only going to help you in getting the content. You wont get anything else. In HTML page you have a lot of static things. Like the buttons or the text, fonts, images, etc. And this all things are left behind. The best way is to use a new theme for the same. Create something new and try that. Slowly migrate the content. There can be bugs also if you try to convert it. Anyhow you are not going to get the exact same site.

If you need a bug free site then hire a developer. You can find ample of them online. A developer can help you to get what you are looking for. He might
design the site exactly as per your need. It will be clean and simple. The layout thing matters a lot here. Because if that is no so nicely done then the site look a bit dull. Once the layout is designed then you can add the content later on. If you are having too many pages then without a developers help it will be complicated for you to migrate the website.

It would be easier if you were using WordPress type of cms. Migration in that is lot more simpler compare to migrating from static codes. The best thing to is find a nice and similar theme based on your sites. WordPress has tons of free themes on web. You can find one which is near to your site look and install that. And then import things from the site. WordPress will do that quiet easily through a third party software. You can do that on a test server. Do not do that on the live site. Things can be messed up on it.

Migration of data is not so tough. The layout is complicated. This consist of theme, colors, content, pictures, videos, etc. And then comes links on the
page. If you have any gallery then that might not work. All these things are manual job. You cannot just migrate that through some third party software. All you will get at the end is a messed up work. You must do that slowly. Start making site from scratch in WordPress and use that only. So that your site does not cause any problem later on.
