Importing a Non-WordPress Site Into WordPress

If you have a website you want to import into WordPress but the content is not in a content management system, or not in one that there’s an import plugin for, Andrew Norcross has created the plugin for you. This plugin is very useful for importing a static website into WordPress.

The URL Cloner plugin copies content from a website and places it into WordPress. You can input the source URL, specify the type of post, whether or not to set them as published, a default category, author, and the original post date of the content. If you don’t specify a date, it will use today’s date as a default.

The plugin cleverly uses an InstaPaper-like API that reads the content from pages around the web.
