Import »Import from Wix

Our Wix Importer is really easy to use. All you have to do is provide your site’s web address (called a URL). When the import is complete, you’ll have a site that’s pre-filled with your content & ready to be your new home on the web.

Import to a new site

If you’re just getting set up with WordPress.com or don’t want to affect an existing WordPress site, the quickest way to get started is to visit https://wordpress.com/start/import. Once you give us the URL of your Wix site, we’ll set up a new WordPress site & take you directly to the import feature.  Don’t worry about your web address. You can change it easily and add your existing domain name (or even a brand new one) when you’re ready to take your site live.

Import to an existing site

If you already have a WordPress.com site you want continue using, but have content on a Wix site you want to append, visit the Import portion of your Site Settings.

NOTE: Some site settings will be overwritten when you import from Wix to an existing site. For example, your menus, front page setting, site title, etc. will be changed to match your Wix site.

Supported Content

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the types of content we can import:
  • Blog posts
  • Static pages
  • Images
  • Various other blocks and features
We will attempt to import as much of your content as possible, but there is some functionality we don’t support quite yet. We’ll continue to add support, so if there’s an important bit that isn’t incorporated in your new site, please reach out to us and let us know about it!
