It is important to be thorough when building your website’s sitemap and planning your content so that you have the clearest possible picture of what the final product will look like when it goes to production. During the planning phase, you are in a much better position to make changes, test scenarios, and work out potential issues before you transfer content to the live site. Making revisions will be simple during the planning phases, so we recommend making the most of it.
When the time comes to import content, organization is key, especially when dealing with a team of developers. You want to be sure that when you import content to the live website, it reflects your planning documentation as closely as possible.
Easily import website structures from Slickplan to a supported CMS platform. Slickplan sitemaps can be transferred by itself or include underlying page content from the content planner. Importing sitemaps is an especially useful CMS integration when dealing with websites with numerous sections, pages, and subpages. Save time and ensure accuracy by exporting your sitemap to a Slickplan XML file that can be used in one of our plugins.
Our WordPress plugin allows you to additionally create your menu structures directly within the CMS from your Slickplan sitemap. You will be given the option to include your menus during the XML import process.
Your content should be as complete and final as possible within the content plan before you transfer it to your actual website. This includes SEO keyword optimizations, header tag assignments, spelling and grammar, as well as stakeholder or client final approvals. Quickly share, gain feedback and make changes from the Slickplan content planner, rather than your actual website. You’ll also save time by knowing the content is complete when it arrives on the new site.
When importing your website, you will have the opportunity to transfer content from your Slickplan Content Planner. This includes all of your plain and rich text, images, videos and files. Depending on your chosen CMS platform, you may be able to transfer additional content types; see the chart below for more information.
