How to convert the Webflow project

At the very first screen, once the software starts, a Login page will ask you to type username and password: they will be your signature in Udesly universe.

 

After that, you have to upload the .zip file exported by Webflow earlier.

 

Click on the “Upload Template” green button and it is on!

 

Your Webflow template is safe and sound and it’s just waiting to be converted. First of all you have to configure all the pages that are going to make your website. Let’s see the page standards provided by Udesly:

 

Front Page: you have to assign here the Front Page of your website.
Blog Archive: it’s the Blog Archive page.
Template: Its a template that can be selected when creating a new page from WordPress.
Single Post: it concerns the template of the single posts of your Blog.
Generic Page: this is the classic page you created on Webflow and want to be converted in WordPress
Utility Page: the ooops page not found page that makes your day sadder. (404 page)
Remove: a page you don’t want to convert (if you use webflow CMS there are some pages automatically created).
Default Template: it is the standard template that will be used for WordPress created pages.
Temporary: it’s the coming soon/mantainance page. In the Udesly plugin you can enable the temporary mode and this page will be displayed.
Search: it’s the search results page.
Category: the page of a given category. The page name must be equal to the category slug.
Tag: the page of a given tag. The page name must be equal to the tag slug.
Post Template Page: it allows to create some specific templates for the posts only.

 

Let’s move on. The next screen concerns Optional Settings that, in the details, are:

 

Remove Webflow SEO: select this option to remove the metatags set in Webflow and enable the WordPress SEO management (very powerful).
Remove Webflow jQuery: if you are experiencing some jQuery conflict, it may be useful to check this option to remove the jQuery inserted by Webflow.

 

You’re finally ready to convert your project into a WordPress template.

 

Click on the “Convert” button and it will bring out a .zip file containing your WordPress template.

 

The work is done, now you can download your converted template!

 

You can also manage your templates from the “My templates” section.
