Functionality

Did exactly what it said it would do.

Ease of use

This extension worked out-of-the-box. Simple and hassle free.

Support

No support but the extension is so easy to use, you don't really need any support.

Documentation

Documentation is a little hard to find. But it is there if you need it, which you wont.

I used this to: I used this to export a stack of articles from Joomla 2-5 site, and imported them into Joomla 3.3.6 site.
It worked very well.
Had one small error where the receiving site couldn't read the format of the .xml file it was trying to import. {j2xml file format unknown. impossible

Nothing else does this

With this simple but amazing extension you can export individual articles or categories of articles from one site and then import them into another site, retaining article ID's if desired.



It does more things, but that's what I used it for. In my case, I imported articles from two different Joomla sites into a new site.



Even though the component is free there is support. I was confused about something and within hours the developer clarified what I needed to do in my case.



Needless to say I clicked on his paypal donation button and was happy to give him a donation -- for such a time saver. Without this component I would have spent countless hours -- and it took care of it all in minutes.



...Rowby


Man this was an absolute lifesaver in at least 5 customer-joomlas for me, I thank you so much for this great piece of code!



5 minutes and I had all my articles exported from old 2.5 site and imported in a fresh new 3.x site, saving all my articles and categories.



For users: if you have articles in the joomla archiv, dont forget to export them too.



After installation from the component there is an additional export button in the articles overview, select all articles, click export, you got an xml file, and import that in the new joomla with the same installed component, ready.



5 stars for you, thank you!


Making Life Easy...

This one made is so simple to throw articles from one Joomla to other Joomla site.



I was able to move articles from multiple and selected categories to my new site in just few minutes.



Thank you again for such wonderful addition.


This is my first time reviewing anything in any depth, but as the director of a start-up, all volunteer non-profit, I discovered J2XML at a desperate time. Our J1.5 site was mercilessly hacked and needed to migrate to get back online. J2XML was the only product we could find (and afford), so we decided to test it out.



I was skeptical. I've used highly rated free apps, most fail to deliver. Those that do often don't do so uniformly. I was THRILLED when it turned out J2XML was a rare exceptional exception. Kudos Eshiol(?)... no, just looked it up - Kudos, Helios Ciancio!



In short, J2XML made migration of content from J1.5 to 3.3 quite easy and instructions were easy to follow. I have yet to encounter a donation-requested-not-mandated (free) app of this high quality and was highly impressed by the developers commitment to excellence. Frankly, I was also very moved by the (your) generous sharing of hard work, without expectation of anything in return, given the few if any freely shared Joomla migration apps made available.



With that said, J2XML doesn't do everything for you, nor does it claim to.

For our NGO, the migration process has stalled for lack of expertise in customizing Jv.3 templates to match our Jv1.5. So, depending on your needs, your level of expertise and/or free time, you may find yourself in the same boat. It may be that there's an app out there that can do it, for a fee, but I'm under the impression the paid apps do not substantially differ in function from J2XML.



While an app capable of seeing the remainder of the process would have been ideal, the limited scope of the app in no way diminishes the quality of this developers' work. We've made it 3/4 of the way there, which means less funds going to a professional to get our site live again... So, THANK YOU for your help and THANK YOU on behalf of our community - families and the children who've been abused in residential and rehabilitation centers. :)


It Just Works!!!

I just wish it could export menus and extensions....


This wonderful extension encouraged me to export my articles from a migrated and problematic J1.5/2.5 website into a fresh installation of J3x.



The export/import feature of J2XML via xml files works fine. It maintains article IDs so that article links still work, sometimes after some adjustment. Unfortunately this is not the case with weblink IDs so that article embedded weblinks don't work anymore. I had to do some changes in the database to adjust weblink IDs.



The 'send' feature could be a really nice one. It allows a direct transfer of articles from one website to another. But in my case it was only possible to send two articles in one step. So I couldn't use it for a larger number of articles.



Some room for improvement is also in the documentation. It is quiet thin and difficult to find. I needed some experiments to find out how J2XML works.



Nevertheles, the most important thing is that J2XML makes it possible to transfer Joomla articles from one website to another. Since it is a free extension, it may take some time to improve the other things.


Wonderful extension

Thank you for your work!

The prosedure of import/export took 15 mins.


I've created a site starter with Joomla, JCE, XMAP, my article and configuration settings and my preferred Bootstrap Joomla templates (Joostrap, Joomlart), a few google fonts etc. It's a real timesaver - I can have a robust site up and running, ready for articles, in less than 15 minutes. I used upload my master, use Akeeba Kickstart to install, and go to work.

Rather than adding all the functions I wanted to three sites I was redesigning,I set up new masters to save time. I used J2XML to bring over the articles and FTP'd the image files.



It worked flawlessly and saved me a great deal of time.

Good!

in a few minutes I exported and imported articles, categories and users from Joomla 2.5.x to the new version 3.x.

Too bad that not even the export menu :-(
