This component is just excellent. It is easy to use and does what is promised. Also the support is very remarkable. I ran into an issue with translations and the support fixed it for me wihtout extra cost. This is really unseen. This component is worth every euro.

I would love to give this extra stars!! So simple and saved me hours of work to convert a Joomla 1.5 site to Joomla 3.0. LOVE LOVE LOVE this extension. Thank you so much for developing it! Only thing I wish is that the images all moved over.


Posted on 17 October 2014

I can’t say enough nice things about this component or the support I received from Barnaby Dixon. This made migrating from 1.5 to 3.xx fairly easy and is well worth the price. I struggled for hours with other free extensions, but this one had me up and running in an hour! Great job!

After trying different migration tools, Migrate Me has been the only one that has worked like a charm to move a J1.5 site to a new J3.3 one.

In addition, the support is excellent too.

Great Support

Posted on 20 September 2014

I had some initial issues after attempting to convert my site, but it was a complicated conversion. I contacted support and was amazed at the immediate response and assistance I was given and was able to complete the conversion. If you get this extension and do have any issues, do not hesitate to contact support and they will help you right away. Very impressive service!

I needed to upgrade an existing Joomla! 1.5 website, lots of data, many extensions, a potential pain, a big job.

Understandably I was nervous of migrating from Joomla! 1.5 to Joomla! 3, I had heard of many of the disaster stories.

I read the other reviews posted here and decided to give it ago. I went like a dream, I could not believe how easy it was, the process is very straight forward, not a hitch.

I cannot recommend this extension enough, it solves a major problem for many established Joomla! websites.

This is a 5 Star Rated product.

I used the commercial version (MigrateMePlus) to upgrade from Joomla 2.5 to 3, and can report that this does work pretty much as advertised.

I'd tried other migration tools (including a paid one) which weren't nearly as comprehensive or straightforward. The process is completely automated and pretty much "single click". I especially liked the fact you could test out the migrated site in a subdirectory first before confirming and going live. It also did a number of sanity checks including repairing and compacting the database before extracting and duplicating the data. The process is reversible (ie revert to backup).

What it doesn't (and couldn't easily) do is sort out extension compatibility - you have to manually inspect each one and upgrade before/after the migration.

I also had a minor glitch with my template which broke dramatically, but only required a couple of lines changed to fix.

Great piece of software and well worth the time saved/price charged. Note that MigrateMe for upgrading Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 or 3 is free, while other migrations such as 2.5 to 3.0 is a commercial extension.

You can now upgrade to Joomla 3 with just a single click. The upgrade will completely update your filesystem and database to the latest versions of Joomla. Your images, articles, data and files will all be perfectly maintained, and your google page rank will be completely unaffected.

Search & Replace for Joomla!

The original Search & Replace component for Joomla - now updated to work with K2! Got an external link that you need changed in every page? No problem! Just search for it and replace it with the new link. You can search and replace any content in your articles in seconds. Search & Replace for Joomla is used to search & replace content in your Joomla articles. You can search for any word, HTML, or content, and replace it with whatever you like. Changes are stored directly in the database itself, which vastly speeds up page load time compared to other available components and plugins. Using this component you can quickly search & replace to add links, change spellings, cross-reference your pages, bulk update your content and so forth. Search & Replace can change content in Titles, Introductions, Main Content, or a selection of those - all at the same time. You can also select which categories to include in the search, and if the search finds any results, it will give you a list of the pages where the search term exists, along with links to view the page in your browser. Please note: Search & Replace does not affect the HTML stored in your template files. If you need to search & replace HTML content in your template files, please edit your template files directly. This component is extremely powerful, so please back up your database before you use it. How to use: 1. Create a backup of your database 2. Enter the text to search for 3. Enter the text to replace your search string 4. Press Search to search for page results 5. Press Replace to update your database & make all changes 6. Check your site for changes. Tips 1. Keep it simple. Longer search strings sometimes match less cases - often due to variances in whitespace 2. Disable your Joomla cache while you make changes so that you can instantly see what has been changed. 3. Look in the HTML source of your target page to select and paste the exact content you want to search & replace. 4. Sometimes text is rendered in your browser differently to the way it is stored in the database. The key to successful searches is to keep search phrases short and simple. I hope you find the component useful. Any comments or suggestions are very welcome, and where possible, suggestions will be incorporated into new versions of the component.
