Prepare for Migration

Welcome to WiscWeb!

We are excited to work with you.

Before you get started, we highly recommend that you take a moment to review the many resources that are available to you, on the WiscWeb Service Site including:

  1. Training and Open Labs
  2. Campus Resources
  3. UW Theme Features
  4. Plugins
  5. KB Documents

To get started, you will need to let us know you are ready to begin the process, by submitting the form below. When we receive your request, we will contact you within a few days to schedule your migration.

We will then work with you to put a timeline in place for migration of your site. The steps below outline what you will need to do, but we will support you every step of the way.

Complete Migration Request

  • Welcome to WiscWeb

    This is the first part of the process to migrate your existing WordPress site into WiscWeb. Once you have submitted this form, we will contact you within a few days to work with you to plan and schedule a time for your site migration. We are excited to have you join WiscWeb and look forward to working with you.
  • So that we can add you to the Box folder to upload your export files.



Export Files

One day prior to your site migration date, you will export your files using the process located in the KB document WiscWeb – Engineering Sites Migration Plugin. You will then upload the export file into the WiscWeb Migrations – Engineering Sites Export Files folder in Box

Once you have exported your files, you should no longer make updates to your existing site, as they will not migrate to your new site.

File Import and Site Review

On your scheduled migration date, the WiscWeb team will import your files into WiscWeb and will contact you when your new site is ready for your review.

Site Launch

When you have reviewed your site and made updates to your content and design, you are ready for the WiscWeb site to be your live site. At this point, please review the Prepare for Launch instructions. Then you will complete the Website Launch Request Form.

The WiscWeb team will schedule your site launch and will notify you when your new site is officially live.
