Given that this was all at 2 am Sunday morning in NY, which was probably 8 am where the author is, that counts as exceptional service well worth the price.
You want to migrate? This extension is the way to go (!)
It worked very well, but i came across a few problems, where it appeared not to work properly. My fault, not the extension.
I decided to contact their support and within a few emails, they went into my site and sorted it all out for me.
Excellent customer support makes the upgrade from 1.5 to 2.5 a smooth task, making this extension well worth the cost.
I tried to migrate directly to 3.0, but ran into display / override problems w/ Joomla's native Contacts component, so I went back to 2.5, again using SP Ugrade. And again it took me less than 30 mins to migrate everything!
Especially, I like the idea that SP Upgrade manages the core stuff for you, and then it has the capability to copy over custom tables (in my case to use with Breezingforms). Worked like a charm!
5 stars obviously!
