Wix to Avoori – Migration and Content Transfer

To move your website contents from Wix to Avoori you will have to perform some actions. This guide goes through them, explaining everything in a simple way that should make the process pretty easy.

During the process you will be separately moving the blog posts, the pages and create a main navigational menu to help your visitors easily navigate through your website.

The first step is to create your new Avoori website. You can do it by following the quick starting guides to learn how.

Export RSS Feed from Wix

Export the RSS feed.

Let’s start by migrating your Wix blog posts to Avoori. You don’t need to copy posts by post. Instead, you can use the RSS feed to automate the process.

To do so, you need to download your RSS file from Wix. You can find this file by adding /feed.xml to your Wix website URL. If you have a custom domain, your RSS feed will be at www.yoursite.com/feed.xml, if you don’t you will find it at yourusername.wixsite.com/yourblogname/feed.xml.

Navigate there and you will find a page with code. Right-click on any place and select Save As to save it to your computer.

Import to Avoori

Import the RSS file to Avoori.

Now, the second part is to import it to Avoori. Go to Tools-> Import. Choose the Wix button.

Upload the file and click on the Upload file and import button.

When it’s finished you will get a success message. Go to your posts to check if they were all successfully imported.

Import Pages

To import pages from Wix there isn’t, unfortunately, an automated way to do it, so they have to be manually imported.

Go to your menu and click on Pages-> Add New. Type the title of the page and then, with the help of the Page Designer, paste the content of your old Wix page and style it to your taste. Don’t forget to Publish your page when you are done.

Use the different modules of the page designer to convert the content into the right format. For instance, if you had a contact form page on Wix, you can use the Contact Form module to help you switch it to Avoori.

Create a Navigational Menu

Now that your website contents are placed in your Avoori website, you need to ensure that your visitors can navigate through your website pages. Check the Appearance-> Menus screen to add new pages to your menu. Learn more about how to add and edit a menu with the quick start guide that you can find here.

That’s it! Now your new website is ready.
