They need to get up to speed with contemporary web possibilities, including building readership and making their content better accessible, as well as integrated into social networking loops. Wordpress has come on in leaps and bounds in this direction since I first looked at it back in 2005. I just want to help them make the move so they can take advantage of some of that.

That will help them get into the search engines. Are they using other new media distribution paths, such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr? Is the site showing up at all in Google? Maybe creating a sitemap for the old site, and ensuring that old articles are linked to when appropriate from the new site, would be a more useful use of your time and effort. Mike

Hi Mike,

No one would be happier than me to take the easier route! haha But take my word for it, they need this port. So perhaps let's focus on discussion of how such a thing could be done, what strategies or tools can help in that, what pitfalls to look out for, etc. I don't say it's the only thing they need!
