CMigrator
I have been wanting to convert the JoomStew blog from Wordpress to Joomla for quite some time. My previous attempts with other converters were not good. This one works well!

I installed a fresh copy of Joomla 2.5.1, installed the CMigrator component and entered my DB info and 5 seconds later, I was done. All the categories and articles were in the proper place with the proper layout.

It actually kept the URLs intact for the images, since WP uses complete URLs for them. This is actually a good thing if you don't have time to update all the image URLs, you can simply move the image folder over to your Joomla site and clean them up later.

The only thing I see for now is the captions from the images are still in [square brackets] inside each blog post. But overall, I'm happy with it. Great Job on this Daniel!

JoomGallery
This Gallery is everything it says it is on the box and more! The default demo link above doesn't do it justice! You can make it look however you want, and it integrates with the standard J1.5 Mootools library, so no conflicts with Joomla.

The configuration is a bit overwhelming when you click on it for the first time, but it just gives you so many options and layout, you can't ask for anything better! The upload is a breeze, and has several options including images in a zip, single images, a javascript upload as well as FTP upload that let's you choose the files in a category from a specified FTP folder on your server. There's custom titles and descriptions as well as options for voting and comments! Or turn it all off and make a clean thumbnail gallery with slimbox for a stripped down version that's easy on the eye!

I recently tried another free gallery component on a client's site, and I think I'm going to go back and switch to this one for him too! This thing just ROCKS!

I will definitely be keeping this one in the 'heavily used' folder of must have components!

Thanks so much to the developers for your time and commitment to making such a wonderful GPL component!

I love Joomla! And I just met JoomGallery, but I think I love it too! lol. Thanks again!
