I wondered I bought the wrong package, but I alerted the author who said he'd never seen anything quite like it. He surmised that software was moving too fast for my MySQL dB. He said he'd have a solution in 24 hrs. In 36 hrs it was all solved. He put a throttle on the import.
I'd give 6 stars if it can convert the imported links to joomla!
Of course you will need to prepare your data. I use Seblod CCK, so I will have to go thru additional steps for supplemental user data, but I'm OK with that once I have a user id to associate with.
I have not tried the other migration methods the author offers, but with such a clean interface. Money well spent!
A good start to the plugin and doing me fine in a pinch.
I wish it had one more feature, such as: After a successful login, then go to the page your were originally on, i.e. the one that forced you to login at the start. Setting that dynamically would be great. thx Jacob
I tried 3 others and kept getting disappointed when things I'd try did not work (I have implemented about 35 Joomla sites over the last 5 years, so yes, I know how to clear cache) or did NOT really do what what the author programmed, or did not "really" work with J1.7.
This is a great module: Plethora of Options! And great CSS control!
I used jSeblod CCK to create a blog content type + Jcomments (or other).
My only complaint so far is the CSS built by the component, but I don't think it's the author's fault.
e.g. I want to edit the date displayed in the H3 tag within td.contentheading -- as I don't want the date above each article in the component area.
Additionally, it seems redundant as the module has a parameter for 'Show Created Date'.
