Re: converting a large site to Django

It will be hard for us to answer that question unless we know more about how/where the old webpages are stored and how you would like to store them in your Django based website.

You have several options:

    Use an app like Flatpages < >, which comes with Django.  Webpages are stored in the database.  It might be pretty easy to populate your Django website with some python code you would write that would grab your old webpages, massage them, and store them into your new website database.

    If the old webpages are static, you could put them into the static area of your website.

Give us more detail and we can probably be of more help.
