You have to export the contents from Joomla!® 1.5 using J2XML and then import into Joomla!® 1.7+ web site using J2XML Importer.
* import articles (keep ids)
* import categories/sections
* import users (keep ids)
* import images
* import weblinks
Went without a hitch for me!
I just wish it would do the menus too! But I suppose it really can't do that seeing as menus come with modules, and that's all handled so differently in 1.6.
Thanks for your efforts.
Thank you for your review. J2XML Importer use only one import button to import all data exported by J2XML.
If you have any problem feel free to contact me any time (without registration)
- installing this component also installs a plugin. TURN IT ON. Now go to articles/sections/users and you will see a EXPORT button. DONE
its pretty straightforward
- if you have issues contact them.
i contacted them and they answered me very fast and effectively
IMHO missing menu migration is important. More descriptive dependencies list will be useful too, because i can't get it to work on my localhost, but on my site it works.
Beside mentioned problems, very thanks for it!
Thanks for review. Stable release 188.8.131.52 solves the users issue.
