Imagine the parameters you would want to set if you wanted to export content to use elsewhere. Those parameters are all here in the options.

Ease of use
I used this to: I exported the entire content from a J2.5.28 site and imported into a clean J3.3.6 install both using J2XML. It worked without any issues. It's taken me longer to write up this review than to migrate my data.

excellent, brilliant!

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!
