The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


This wonderful extension encouraged me to export my articles from a migrated and problematic J1.5/2.5 website into a fresh installation of J3x.

The export/import feature of J2XML via xml files works fine. It maintains article IDs so that article links still work, sometimes after some adjustment. Unfortunately this is not the case with weblink IDs so that article embedded weblinks don't work anymore. I had to do some changes in the database to adjust weblink IDs.

The 'send' feature could be a really nice one. It allows a direct transfer of articles from one website to another. But in my case it was only possible to send two articles in one step. So I couldn't use it for a larger number of articles.

Some room for improvement is also in the documentation. It is quiet thin and difficult to find. I needed some experiments to find out how J2XML works.

Nevertheles, the most important thing is that J2XML makes it possible to transfer Joomla articles from one website to another. Since it is a free extension, it may take some time to improve the other things.

Joes Word Cloud
For my trilingual website I was looking for a cloud module that supports Joomfish. From my experience, Joes word cloud is the best solution for that. Very useful is the option to include or exclude words. The module would be perfect if there would be an option to include meta tags and an option to control the horizontal size of the module.

Hi Jlaner,

Forgot to say, I released v1.6.3 of this module on the 14th April 2011 which along with other changes allows you to specify the width of the module.

Glad it helps!

Kind Regards,
