I have a website that I want to move to Drupal 7. It is in HTML. I want the content to be in nodes. I don't know much about Drupal and so I need help doing this. I don't want to create a new theme because I want the design to change. I just want the content in nodes. How can I do this in Drupal? Is there a module that can help?


You don't necessarily need a module to add a content to drupal. Just simply create a content of type page and add your content. To help you with formatting, you may want to install the WYSIWYG module to help you with formatting.

  • For some reason I can't find the option to create a new page. – Steve Holt Jun 1 '13 at 21:34
  • Can you see content on your menu? – 4life Jun 1 '13 at 21:48
  • I see content but when I click it there is nowhere to add a new page – Steve Holt Jun 1 '13 at 21:57
  • At the top left you would see add content. Click on it and then choose basic page – 4life Jun 1 '13 at 21:59
  • It takes me to Add Project page when I do that and the option for basic page is not shown – Steve Holt Jun 1 '13 at 22:07

The module I used (several years ago) was the Import HTML module. I imported a site into Drupal 5 and it worked well. There is a Drupal 7 dev version, but I have no experience with it.

If you use it, plan and prepare well, and you can expect a considerable amount of manual editing after the fact. You may have to try a few times before you get it right, but for a bulk import, it saved me a lot of work.
