The Headless setup is changing the way we create websites, giving us great flexibility when choosing the technology and its use. In this free workshop from our friends at Storyblok, Alba Silvente and Christian Zoppi will teach you how to migrate a WordPress site to the Storyblok Headless CMS.

You will be able to improve the performance of your site, increase the dynamic content that your content creators will be able to use, and increase your development productivity. Alba and Christian will show you how to migrate content from your WordPress site, and leverage the potential of Storyblok to create reusable blocks and custom workflows.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Detect when it makes sense to migrate from WP to a Headless setup.
  • Create and understand a Storyblok space.
  • Create Content Types with the same schema as in WP, and create relationships between them.
  • Migrate your WP content to a new Headless CMS, configuring a script.
  • Create a Frontend project and connect it to our Storyblok space.
  • Implement the components and render the migrated content.

Who is this workshop for?

People working on WordPress sites who are considering migrating to a Headless CMS. For anyone who wants to improve the performance of their website, speed up the creation of content in their team or develop their application on different devices.

What hardware/software do you need?

Have a WP project with WP-JSON available and a Storyblok account already created. If you don’t have a Wordpress website, we’ll have one for you so you can still learn along with us!
