Import Drupal into WordPress WordPress

We are closing down an old site that is using an old copy of Drupal (5.0) Can anyone point me to a good importer? Does anyone have a script that can import a lot of Drupal's data? Even a different importer script would be useful, to give me something to work with.

These guides should get you started: :-)

A straightforward guide
http://9seeds.com/news/drupal-to-wordpress-migration/

This is an old guide to import into wordpress 2.x. You could try that for the move and then upgrade the wordpress version to the latest.
http://www.mikesmullin.com/development/migrate-convert-import-drupal-5-to-wordpress-27/

For wordpress 3.x. the script attached should do the trick. With some tweaking from the first guide it should work very smooth.

If you're looking for an automated task you should try this method but is for drupal 6. It could also work for drupal 5. It is based on Java.

For a automated professional move i recommend:

For a website up to 10 pages it's free.
