"Im Rafay, and I work for Digital scholarship services at City College. I had two questions regarding Academic Commons.
The first being, is it possible to migrate a preexisting wordpress site (http://digitalscholarship.ccny.cuny.edu) to the academic commons?
Secondly, the theme used for our site (BusinessBuilder) is not available. How can we go about installing that?"
He's like it cloned as is, if possible.

Imports from external WordPress sites are generally self-service on the Commons. Here's some information: https://help.commons.gc.cuny.edu/importing-and-exporting-site-content/
I've added Scott as a watcher here because I think that this page could use a little bit of updating. A little more focus on the WordPress import process would be nice - the author-mapping and attachment portions of the import can be less than 100% clear for some users - along with some tips on migrating content not included in the WP export, such as theme settings. (Short version: themes will often provide their own import/export tools, but other settings may need manual migration.) We could also add a note to the effect that the Commons team may be able to help with more complex migrations.
As for the BusinessBuilder theme, can I get confirmation that https://wordpress.org/themes/businessbuilder/ is the theme that the user intends? If so, I can process the request in our normal way https://dev.commons.gc.cuny.edu/hosting-partner-handbook/#plugin-and-theme-requests

Correct! Good grief, I'm the one who made the form - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc2NPi8vTEYsMT31T7r-PDv8MGK3EG5NPSG6uELu2HUPZTsDQ/viewform - and I forgot. Will do!

He has replied:
What's the name of the plugin/theme? *
In a few words, what does it do? *
Displays the site in a more aesthetically pleasing format.
Please provide a link to the plugin on the WordPress theme repository or (https://wordpress.org/themes/) plugin repository (https://wordpress.org/plugins/) *
Please research the release history and popularity of the plugin. How many times has it been downloaded? When was it last updated? *
Last Updated : February 20, 2018
Active Downloads: 2,000+
How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons? *
Aesthetically we find it to be more pleasing due to its choice in displaying the menu bar underneath the header Image. But more importantly we have already completed a website using the theme and would like to migrate it.
Please let us know who you are (include a link to your site) and who will use this tool? *
I'm Rafay and I work for Digital Scholarship Services at CCNY. We are currently embarking on an OER Initiative and we would like to host future course websites on academic commons. A course site we have made http://digitalscholarship.ccny.cuny.edu/index/.

Sounds good. Theme installed in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/81796bec43e1f386835c80938e42695f8c44ff20. I'll make it network-available after the release.
