- Migration from Wordpress or Drupal 7
- Migration into com_content or K2
- Category import
- Content import
- Users import ( + authentification plugin to log them into your joomla site and update their passwords to the joomla format)
- Tags import for K2
- Tags import for com_content (ads them as meta keywords) (on joomla 3.0 it uses the default tags component)
- Keeps the relations between categories (nested categories) and content. The content is created by the same users as in wordpress/drupal
- Content parsing - cleans up wordpress/drupal code that is not used in joomla. Moves images to your images folder
- Ability to import data from no matter how big database
The original version of CMigrator was inspired by JConverter - thank you!

The biggest gripe I have is that you must have phpMyAdmin installed. I realize it's a fairly ubiquitous tool, but that should have been clearly stated prior to purchase. I prefer to work through command line. Not a huge deal to install phpMyAdmin but I'd rather not have done so.
The only other suggestion I have is to copy your log reports and save them as you complete the steps. I assumed it would keep copies and once I changed screens they were gone. Would be nice to have them to refer to.
Note: In the options of the migrationprofile, where you are asked to insert the db prefix, you had to insert the prefix of the wp or drupal tables not the prefix of your joomla tables.
thanks to daniel for his support!
Only minor things cannot be represented as in original articles, but mostly due to particular extensions used in Wordpress.
A must have if you have to import a complex and big wordpress blog into Joomla.
I suggest to watch the webinar on youtube that shows very well the value of this product.
CMigrator proved to be the solution. What impressed me so so much was not only the availability of such a product but also the PEOPLE behind the product. Having some technical issues (not being a technical whizz) I asked Compojoom if they could help and I said I was happy to pay for this. Daniel promptly suggested I call them in Germany via Skype which I did and about an hour later they had fixed the issue. I am not sure if it was of my doing or something within CMigrator that had caused the issue but either way they would not accept payment! How much does that tell you about the confidence you can have in this product and Compojoom - and Compojoom's OTHER products as well (by the way, I have CComment as well and this also imported over a thousand comments from WP without a hitch - remember, if you are going to import articles from WP or Drupal etc you will want to preserve your comments as well and this product does it for you).
I cannot recommend Compojoom highly enough and I have had experience with a very large number of Joomla extensions. Well done Compojoom and thank you.
This extension was able to migrate over more than 525+ articles and about 60 categories perfectly.
I had one issue I needed help with and the author, Daniel, was very quick and helpful in getting things just right. I highly recommend this extension for anyone wanting to migrate from Wordpress to Joomla 2.5
It automatically transfers all the data from WordPress to Joomla! and does it in impressive way. When the extension was initially released, it only supported the com_content option, but the developer has the willingness to improve it and it now supports migration to k2, including tags.
There might be few things to polish after the migration (i.e. images), but generally this will save you dozens of hours and even more, if you have bigger site.
Great one and keep the good way.
I have heard it said that a person or company has nothing to sell but service. Daniel provided 5 Star Service. I highly recommend CMigrator.
I installed a fresh copy of Joomla 2.5.1, installed the CMigrator component and entered my DB info and 5 seconds later, I was done. All the categories and articles were in the proper place with the proper layout.
It actually kept the URLs intact for the images, since WP uses complete URLs for them. This is actually a good thing if you don't have time to update all the image URLs, you can simply move the image folder over to your Joomla site and clean them up later.
The only thing I see for now is the captions from the images are still in [square brackets] inside each blog post. But overall, I'm happy with it. Great Job on this Daniel!
