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!
I had to export/import quite a bit of articles, including categories from one of my old sites to a new one and this component really worked perfectly.
It even imported the images to the new website server.
One of the best components I've come across.
BIG Thank you!
I just had 2 glitches which have nothing to do with J2XMA. First, I had one article that was just a bunch of pictures, several megs total, and it messed up the process until I excluded that article. (I copied this one article manually.) Second was that a number of Joomla 1.5 articles had the same Alias. It took me a while to figure out why those articles weren't imported. When I finally noticed what was happening, I just made all of the Aliases different and it worked. It was still an easier option than copying each article.
I highly recommend this product.
Thank you Helios!
The site has 450+ articles and this component just did what it said it would. Minutes instead of hours of work. Huge thanks to the developers. Install the j1.5 export on the old site AND enable the plugins, install the j2.5 import on the new site and export - import away. So easy.
