Easy to use and it works. I think the documentation could be more complete but the developer gave me an incredible and fast support. So if u use J2XML u should also donate the developer not a glass of wine but a full bottle.

I had 65,000 users and thousands of articles to migrate. This software did the trick, sending everything from the live site to the dev site. The one problem I had was the s/w would stop on errors instead of just logging and continuing. Still, it saved me a lot of time and $$

If it worked for K2 it would be perfect but I give it 5 stars because it's FREE.

This is really an amazing extension (once you get it working).

It does wonders and I was able to shuffle content from J2.5 to J3.x in no time.

The steps to install are also really simple once you figure it out. It would be helpful if the installation procedure was explained in the download section in 3-4 lines.

Still an amazing result!

Never was there any other Joomla tool that saved me so much time! I've used it before to migrate 1.5 sites, and I was very happy to see that there's one now for 2.5 +. Thanks a bunch and keep up the good work. I will make a donation!

I've used this tool quite a few times for migrating from Joomla 1.5 to 1.7. Again from Joomla 2.5 to 3.1. Then used it for saving my content from a hacked site. This tool has saved me a lot of work. This extension cuts out a lot of the disk in manually importing and exporting article data with their proper owners/categories.

I had to migrate a website from 1.5 to Joomla 3.x . Thanks to this component, migrating all my articles was so easy.
Don't forget to preserve the ID's (it's in the settings): it makes other things, like migrating comments, much easier.

Very easy to set-up and use. I transfered 100s of articles from different categories in a 2.5 site to new categories in a 3.1 site without any problem. The trick is to transfer content one category at a time if you need content to go in specific places. Very happy with how much work I've saved. Thanks to the developer.

I don't really post reviews but this is an exception. J2XML made life so easy. I have procrastinating about migration for 2 years and then i came across this. A few trouble with setting up the path and for installation of the plugin etc but after that it was easy as a breeze.

I used this to help migrate an existing Joomla 1.5 site to Joomla 2.5 . Your instructions posted at your website made the process easy. Within 10 minutes, I had all of my users and all of my articles transfered to the new Joomla 2.5 site. This saved me a lot of time!
Many Thanks!

I had to migrate from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5; migrate from one host to another - not 1 site but 5! And all was done in a breeze with j2xml for exporting and j2xml1.6 importer for importing. Great extension! Thanks a lot!

I had an old Joomla 1.5 website, from which I had to recover the users, and migrate them in a brand new Joomla 2.5 website. I just installed this component in the old Joomla 1.5 (on my computer with Wamp) and I was able to export them with no problem.

Just a stuff: I had about 800 users to recover. I had to split the users backups (100 uses at a time), because when I imported them in one time (800), I had a time out and the process was stopped. But with several splits, absolutely no problem.

Do the job as described. 5 stars for this work, guys!
