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
As I had been contemplating a move to Joomla! 3.x, I used this an an opportunity to take the plunge.
I found this utility to be crucial to the success of my transition, and when I hit a hitch on a Saturday, a quick email to the author and a fix was in my inbox in a few hours. All is well.
Great tool (very handy) and super support. Highly recommended
If you are having questions about buying this extension ... don't. SP Transfer is one of the extensions that you simply install & it works, saving countless hours of time and headaches in the process. This extension paid for itself inside the first 5 minutes of use.
Unless, for some reason, Joomla! adds this kind of site-to-site data transfer as a core function, I will have a subscription to this extension for a very long time... Great job SP CYEND!
The interface is very clean and intuitive.
It worked correctly the first time without a single glitch.
The documentation is simple and straightforward.
Despite the time zone difference, the developer helped solve a minor purchase issue very quickly.
Extensions that work exactly like the specs are a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to try more of their software if the need arises.
the support is awesome! i had some troubles to buy it... i wrote a message and SP CYEND provided a solution we could both agree on...
keep up the good work!!!
(btw: check out SP CYEND's free stuff, some interesting stuff there too)
I had to rebuild a whole site from scratch (just because the front end editor wasn't working and I just couldn't figured out why!) and it was just what I needed so I didn't have to redo all the modules, articles, users, etc, etc. Well worth it's price for the amount of time it has saved me.
Just remember to install it on your NEW destination site not the old one :)
