I have tried many extensions to migrate from Joomla! 1.5 to 2.5. They worked. But J2XML is the best. It has saved me a lot of hours of work and works like a charm (but you must not forget to enable plugins... ;) )

You're component saved my bacon. I have a large database of users and many custom database fields in the users table. Unfortunately when I used other tools i couldn't migrate my data from 1.5 to JV3, others just don't work, but your Component is brilliant!
I just added support for some of my custom fields in your code and bingo, done.
thanks again! I will make a donation too!!

I was able to transfer all my articles from old 1.5 to fresh install of 3.0. I did run into problems with xml file being to large, so I had to copy images manually, not a problem really (it worked without having to edit a single article).
I would love to see option to import xml file directly from the server (to avoid timeouts).
Great work

in my site migration from joomla 1.5 to 2 the most important feature that i needed was keeping content ID (because comments on articles)

and this component gave it to me :)

Does the job in a modest and efficient way. A pleasure to use this component and the corresponding exporter. Seems like a logical and well thought-through tool.

Using J2XML I migrated the articles and categories from two small 1.5.x sites to 2.5.8 in barely five minutes. A great time saver. No issues at all.

Tried this from 2.5.9. Worked perfectly - first time! I did look at a short video of it first to try and save some learning time and that helped. A great extension.

After wasting lots of time (and money) on jUpgradePro I eventually tried this solution. All articles and users were transferred within minutes. Excellent work with excellent documentation!

The title says it all, and does not require a lot of additional verbiage here.

I needed a component to migrate a large number of weblinks, in several categories, from my J1.5 site to the J2.5 site I'm developing on a localhost. The directions on the developer's site were easy to follow and the process was largely self-explanatory. In less than 5 minutes, I had accomplished the task.

A big thank you to the makers of J2XML for a well-designed and very useful Joomla add-on.

It is not very often that a product does exactly what it says on the box. Add to this the next to zero effort needed from the user and you have a fantastic plugin!

Thank you, you saved me hours of work!

I've been putting off migrating some older sites because I was unwilling to face the hassle of migrating data and users. Literally only took a few minutes to get it all across, with no issue at all. Thank you so much.
