Value for money


It's value far beyond the cost

I used this to:

in less then 1 minute, i see all 200 core joomla articles in my new website.

Disappointed

Functionality

easy to install

Ease of use

Surely a good tool if you are not using third-party component as JomSocial, easyblog or the like to be migrated.
My recommendation: Use the built-in joomla 2.5 for migration. There will be som errors, witch can be corrected using google search.

Value for money

Money out of the window for me


Functionality

A well written tool that does exactly what it says it does.

Ease of use

Has one drawback -- it uses FTP to move files which is inherently insecure. SFTP is available from most reputable ISPs works the same.

Support

Responded quickly to a query. Somebody is picking up the mail.

Documentation

RTFM and it works. The English version is a bit rough, but acceptable.

Value for money

Excellent value. It saved me hours. My time is valuable.

I used this to: Migrated a dangerously out of date (1.5) Joomla site in one evening. Highest recommendation!

Works Really Well

Very good.

I used this to: Upgrading two Joomla 1.5.26 sites to Joomla 3.3+.

Used it Twice, Recommended.


Posted on 21 January 2015
Functionality

I've converted two Joomla sites from V1.5 to 3.x and both have been trouble-free.

Ease of use

Relatively intuitive, the error messages are very good to identify config errors. I had to figure out some things, maybe they are assumed.

Documentation

The documentation could be a bit more specific for a straightforward upgrade, but I figured things out which is part of the fun I guess.

Value for money

I don't recall what I paid, but I consider I got good value. My second conversion took me 71 minutes, I was quoted 3 hours by a pro.

I used this to: Content conversion / upgrade.
It is a very flexible package, and I used probably only a small part of what it is capable of - it seems that you could import just parts of a site not the whole site if you knew the ID reference numbers it uses. I'm really happy with it.

Functionality

Once I cleared up a few of my own misconceptions, converted my old site in a few minutes

Ease of use

Extremely easy

Support

First class

Documentation

The documentation is OK - could be a little bit more detailed

Value for money

Top value

I used this to: Conveting from 1.5.26 to 3.3.6

I used this to: I recently migrated thousands of articles, categories menus from my J!1.5 site to J!3.3, and surprised to see that there were same URLs!. After following the instructions, I handled this work in a very smooth and easier manner. I can say that it was my excellent experience of mig

Functionality

Worked just as described - I was able to migrate thousands of articles/categories/menus from my J!1.5 site to J!3.3, and they all kept their same URLs!

Ease of use

I had a few issues (not related to this extension, mainly that I failed to properly back up all my files, plus user error) - but once I knew the proper steps, the extension worked perfectly.

Support

Excellent! When I ran into issues accidentally replacing my super admin, they gave me the exact steps/settings to follow - worked perfectly!

Documentation
Value for money

Well worth it.

I used this to: migrate from J1.5 (over 4000 articles) to J2.5 a few years ago, ran into some issues (NOT RELATED TO THIS EXTENSION) and never completed the task til recently.

During recent attempt, inadvertently replaced super admin. Contacted support and they gave me the proper steps.

Great tool

Works good and easy and when I ran into problems, the support gave an answer within minutes via email. Great work guys! And thanks.


SpTransfer


Posted on 04 October 2014

You would think that developers would be all over creating extensions that helped users and developers migrate content from one Joomla site/version to another. That's like you would think that Microsoft would have come up with a backup solution along the lines of Time Machine some time ago. On both counts you'd be wrong.



But SPTransfer, for 2.5 to 3.x transfers and SPUpdate for 1.5 transfers is far and away the best I've used. Transfer articles, users, modules, menus, categories, all of it with a few simple steps. Well, simple if your geek quotient is fairly high but pretty straightforward nonetheless.



There are always going to be a few glitches here and there; databases can be finicky that way. But overall these extensions save a great deal of time and effort.



I highly recommend them.

Use this tool to transfer files or database items between two different Joomla! sites, or duplicate items within your live site. This is a 'mass' copy/paste tool necessary for ALL Joomla! administrators. In the old Joomla! 1.5 when you wanted to transfer database items to a different Joomla, just an export/import of the required database tables would do the job. With the new Joomla! 1.6, 1.7, 2.5, 3.x and above, this is no longer possible. This tool is doing just exactly that. Also suitable for upgrading Joomla! 2.5 to 3.x

A very powerful and simple to use component to manage Joomla subscriptions with Paypal saved buttons. With this component you have all you need to integrate the security and ease of use of Paypal Payment Standard Buttons with the new Access Control System of Joomla! Description Taking advantage of the New Joomla! features of Access Control System (allows site administrators control over who can view and manage content), we designed a component that allow you to automatically create/update user's groups and status, with Paypal Standard Buttons transactions. We did not try to build a subscriptions manager from scratch. Instead we had the innovative idea to combine all the power of Joomla and Paypal together. Why is simple to use? Because is as simple as: Joomla Access Control System interface Paypal Saved Buttons interface If you already use Joomla! and Paypal, then you already have the knowledge! Why is powerful, flexible and user friendly? Because is as powerful, flexible and user friendly as: Joomla user and content management (define who have access to what) Paypal Subscriptions buttons (recursive, duration, trial periods, etc etc...)

So in summary with SP Staging you can: Manage extensions remotely from a single place, Use your own site as a coordinator.

With SP Download you can attach and edit files from the front end as well as from the administrative back end. This is the core Joomla Media Manager with the ability to easily upload and attach files to articles and all other types of content. Many times we want to attach files for download in our articles. We needed an easy way to do that, and unfortunately Joomla Media Manager allowed only images handling. So we modified the component and added this exact functionality. While editing any article from back end, or front end you are now able to upload from your PC and attach in your article ready to download. If you are already familiar with Joomla Media Manager, then you will have no problem using that component.
