So you want to move to Drupal from Wordpress?
The two weren't made to play nice together.
Learn from a real case study the how-to of migrating content from one CMS to another.

- to take advantage of Drupal's flexible content types and customizable views,
- the security Drupal offers,
- new custom search features,
- a consolidated site that would be easier to maintain.

Take a look at:

- Some tricky bits, and,
