I was wondering if it is possible to import the data from a dataobject and change it to a page?

My client decided that they wanted a full page as opposed to a javascript pop up for each of their products.

Is there an easy way to do this, or do I need to re-enter everything?

Any advice is appreciated!

It would be pretty trivial to write a little migration task which did something like

// mysite/code/PageMigrationTask

<?php
class PageMigrationTask extends MigrationTask {

function run() {

// go through each object making a new page
$objects = DataObject::get('MyObject');
foreach($objects as $object) {

$page = new Page();
$page->Title = $object->Title;
$page->ParentID = $ID of page you want these to be under
$page->writeToStage('Stage');
$page->publish('Stage', 'Live');
}
}
}

Then you can run the migration task when you want by going site.com/dev/tasks/PageMigrationTask
