Joomla Migration

Now you can upgrade directly to Joomla 3.3!

  • Get this

Migrate Me PLUS allows you to upgrade Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 to the latest version of Joomla! in seconds.

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.

As part of the upgrade, Migrate Me PLUS will take a full backup of your database and filesystem. This means you can test out the new version of Joomla, and then if you decide you don't want it, you can simply rollback your system to your old configuration.

Get Joomla 3 in 90 seconds

A standard Joomla 2.5 system takes around 90 seconds to completely migrate to Joomla 3.

And in that time, Migrate Me PLUS will copy all your existing files, duplicate your database, install Joomla 3, update your Admin area, save all your articles and data and switch you to the new Joomla 3 Admin interface.

After spending days upgrading a site from J2.5 to J3. I decided to give this component a shot. It made the task much more manageable.

The fact that it creates a test install for you to work with saved hours backing up the site and installing it on a test server myself. The one button go live works well too, allowing you to launch a test in just a few minutes.

I experience a problem with a couple of components that were not J3 compatible. I had previously upgraded those components, but it left some J2.5 files behind that caused problems. It even prevented me from entering the admin back end. I emailed Barnaby and he quickly responded the next morning with what to do to fix it.

Very satisfied with the component and the support. This component may save you hours of aggravation. Simply the best way to upgrade!

This extension saved my butt! I needed some customer support to help with a few bugs with my site during the migration and they were amazing. (*Tip* Follow the instructions*) Got my site back up and running in no time. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) I have been using it now to update all my sites. I happily recommend this to anyone needing to migrate to J3.

I've been thinking of upgrading for some time but the prospect has always seemed very daunting.

This Joomla Extension works! You still have to upgrade all the old components, modules, plug-ins and templates, but it produces a working Joomla 3 environment in the Backend to enable you to do this.

I had problems mainly down to missing a module or plug-in, or not having the latest version, but any problems were very quickly sorted out by Barnaby.

Very highly recommended.

Simply fantastic extension.

One click and I've got a test site to work with updating any extensions or templates not compatible with Joomla 3.3

Another click and that test site is live.

Simply awesome how easy the upgrade and migration process is.

Great Support

Great software, easy to use and more importantly, great support! Even a buffoon like me managed it with Barnaby's help. (which was after 5pm on a bank holiday & answered within minutes)

Highly recommended

I used this extension to migrate my 2.5 site to Joomla 3. I also wanted to install and configure a new template, and had quite a lot of extensions to move/replace. Barnaby answered all my pre-sales questions promptly and thoroughly. I was pretty confident that everything would go smoothly after reading several reviews, but in my case there were several glitches due to incompatible extensions and a problem with the configuration file. The support response was excellent. My expertise goes up to editing a file in php, if I'm told what to do, so I was able to follow the excellent, clear instructions and fix the migration to the testing folder. Barnaby also offered to fix it himself if I didn't feel confident editing those files - he really goes out of his way to help. After perfecting my new site in a test folder, I then experienced another glitch going live. Barnaby again responded first thing in the morning, fixed the problem and was generally most helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I was quoted £200 elsewhere for this migration, so the £50 fee is well worth the money. The support is truly excellent and the migration process itself is uncomplicated. Highly recommended.

Uploaded the plugin and component and within 10 minutes the migration was complete. Does exactly what it says it will do, super reliable, and I'd definitely recommend this component to anyone wanting to upgrade to Joomla 3.3 quickly and easily. Thanks for a great product and service!

All our problems where sorted within the hour - Barnaby is by far the best person I have ever emailed with regards to issues with a component.

Great component...did exactly what it said it would do - well worth the money! Saved me so much time.

Excellent customer service and speedy resolution of problems!

I've been spending the past few weeks trying to migrate a J! 2.5.19/20 site to J! 3.2.3.

I've been using a local copy on my desktop using WAMP Server to test the migration.

I've followed all the directions as given in the J! 3.x migration forum, and kept hitting a wall with the migration. Nothing seemed to work.

I finally decided that I would have to find a migration extension. I checked all the various ones listed in the JED, but what blew me away was the demo video for Migrate Me Plus.

I bought it, tried it, and it works. PERIOD

What a fantastic Tool

Posted on 21 March 2014

Looking around and trying to find something to help me upgrade my site, I came across Migrate Me Plus and what a smart extension this is. And what makes it even better is the fantastic support and assistance from Barnaby. My site converted fine - this is really a fantastic tool for someone who does not have lots of Joomla experience

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.

You can import HTML sites from 1 page to 10,000 pages with just a few clicks. Just queue the HTML pages for import, sit back, and let it work. HTML 2 Articles will import the content from HTML pages to Joomla almost instantly. Each individual HTML page creates a new Joomla article. The new article is saved to your Joomla article manager and can be used exactly as a normal article.
