This component is just excellent. It is easy to use and does what is promised. Also the support is very remarkable. I ran into an issue with translations and the support fixed it for me wihtout extra cost. This is really unseen. This component is worth every euro.

I would love to give this extra stars!! So simple and saved me hours of work to convert a Joomla 1.5 site to Joomla 3.0. LOVE LOVE LOVE this extension. Thank you so much for developing it! Only thing I wish is that the images all moved over.

I can’t say enough nice things about this component or the support I received from Barnaby Dixon. This made migrating from 1.5 to 3.xx fairly easy and is well worth the price. I struggled for hours with other free extensions, but this one had me up and running in an hour! Great job!

After trying different migration tools, Migrate Me has been the only one that has worked like a charm to move a J1.5 site to a new J3.3 one.
In addition, the support is excellent too.

I had some initial issues after attempting to convert my site, but it was a complicated conversion. I contacted support and was amazed at the immediate response and assistance I was given and was able to complete the conversion. If you get this extension and do have any issues, do not hesitate to contact support and they will help you right away. Very impressive service!

I needed to upgrade an existing Joomla! 1.5 website, lots of data, many extensions, a potential pain, a big job.

Understandably I was nervous of migrating from Joomla! 1.5 to Joomla! 3, I had heard of many of the disaster stories.

I read the other reviews posted here and decided to give it ago. I went like a dream, I could not believe how easy it was, the process is very straight forward, not a hitch.

I cannot recommend this extension enough, it solves a major problem for many established Joomla! websites.

This is a 5 Star Rated product.

I used the commercial version (MigrateMePlus) to upgrade from Joomla 2.5 to 3, and can report that this does work pretty much as advertised.

I'd tried other migration tools (including a paid one) which weren't nearly as comprehensive or straightforward. The process is completely automated and pretty much "single click". I especially liked the fact you could test out the migrated site in a subdirectory first before confirming and going live. It also did a number of sanity checks including repairing and compacting the database before extracting and duplicating the data. The process is reversible (ie revert to backup).

What it doesn't (and couldn't easily) do is sort out extension compatibility - you have to manually inspect each one and upgrade before/after the migration.

I also had a minor glitch with my template which broke dramatically, but only required a couple of lines changed to fix.

Great piece of software and well worth the time saved/price charged. Note that MigrateMe for upgrading Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 or 3 is free, while other migrations such as 2.5 to 3.0 is a commercial extension.

I rarely write testimonials but this one definitely deserves one.
This extension saved me a lot of time and support was excellent – we were supported in every step of the migration process without any delay.

I had to migrate from Version 1.0 to 3.3 and used Migrate Me, after trying various other migration tools. Migrate Me simply does the job where other tools leave you in uncertainty if they work at all. Very good also the other tools of php webdesign and an unusually quick and professional support.

I tried a huge number migration extensions. And never, I would like to emphasize, never did a different extension migrate my site properly, the site was never really correct.

Usually the admin broke, and the categories, I lost users, and then links didn't work... I got very tired of the endless search for a good migration component. But then I bought Migrate Me and I was amazed at how it works, it is a miracle! It migrates everything! Very quickly efficiently, correctly!

Exactly as I wanted. A couple of times I had difficulties and I asked for support, the response of the support came in a few hours, very fast! And when I didn't know what to do I sent the support a login, and they fixed everything perfectly!

Migrate Me is a salvation for all who have not yet had time to move to 2.5 (which is necessary...)

The component did everything i was expected and so easily! Exported the database 1.5 to a file using SQL PHPmyAdmin, installed the "Migrate me" component on a joomla 3.2, imported the database tables i needed from the file, used ftp to migrate the images and the K2 media files. i was done. migration did take less than 30 minutes! everything is working fine and i just have to make the template now. Congrats for that component. i'm soooo happy.

Barnaby offers the best support service I've ever experienced.
Helped us in every step of the migration and even released a new version for us to support non-ASCII characters in the aliases since we use Greek as a default language on our site. Also offered to run and monitor the migration proccess for us.

I put this move off for months, but after I got hacked I had to upgrade to Joomla 3.2. This software did the job in record time. No problems experienced at all. This is why I pay for good software. Thanks!!

I had two sites to migrate from 2.5.17 to 3.2.1. I spent many hours trying to use the Joomla! Update function to no avail. Not even the Joomla! experts could solve my problems.

But MigrateMe Plus was able to do it with ease. My second site was migrated in just minutes.

What's really cool is the level of support. We had a db with problems and so Barnaby was able to tell us some code to comment out so the migration went without a hitch.

I cannot say enough good things about this component. Well worth the price in saved hours and frustration!

I've been a bit timid to update my Joomla 1.5 sites until i tried this extension. There was a small issue with my host and Barnaby was so fast in helping me take care of it, that i had to write this review and compliment him, not only on the Migrate Me tool, but also on his professionalism and quick response to my questions.

WOW! This IS the only thing you need to migrate your sites. I am a complete novice at Joomla and have been worried about migrating a rather large 1.5 site after reading other extension reviews/guides etc. I took a shot on this after all the top reviews on here and guess what I signed up here specifically to add another one. You make me feel like a Joomla God! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Barnaby worked wery hard to help me and earned my highest respect. He was quick and very very helpful. His extension works well, clean and its easy to use interface makes it a breeze to migrate data fom your joomla 1.5 site. It cannot be even simpler and easier. The developer is trustworthy so he is the guy you want to do business with. Product and support are both higly recommended. Thank you Barnaby, again.

It didn't work right away, because of the configuration of my webserver, but thanks to the excellent and fast service I got to use it and it works perfect! I couldn't want more.
