Hello hello hello! And welcome to our part one of our four-part blog series on Food Blogger Pro’s migration to WordPress!

Well…let’s back up.

If you’ve been around Food Blogger Pro for at least a few months, you’ll know that we recently moved our entire site from a CMS (that’s customer management system) called ExpressionEngine to the CMS we all know and love, WordPress.

This was a huge project that we’ve been chipping away at for years. Since we relaunched Food Blogger Pro on WordPress in April, we’re ready to share our story with you, our lovely readers!

Over the next four blog posts, we’ll publish the story of how we went from saying, “Man, it would be great to run Food Blogger Pro on WordPress one day,” to having a stable, thriving WordPress-based membership site. We’ll focus on the processes and systems that we used to take this project from start to finish (and beyond!).
