HTML 2 Articles was designed to import HTML pages to Joomla as easily and as painlessly as possible.

You can import HTML sites from 1 page to 10,000 pages with just a few clicks. Just queue the HTML pages for import, sit back, and let it work.

HTML 2 Articles will import the content from HTML pages to Joomla almost instantly. Each individual HTML page creates a new Joomla article. The new article is saved to your Joomla article manager and can be used exactly as a normal article.

As far as is possible, all of your configurations, metatags, keywords, content structures, titles, images and links are preserved and imported, converted to UTF-8 format for optimal Joomla integration, and saved to your Joomla system.

Each article takes an average of just 20 seconds to import and process - which includes import of your images, W3C validation, and conversion of your HTML content to UTF-8 encoding.

Imported pages take on your Joomla template structure and stylesheets, and you can specify the category to which you wish to import the new articles.

You can even queue hundreds of HTML files at a time for import, and leave it running until import is complete. During import, each file's content is automatically processed and fully integrated with your Joomla install.

There is extensive documentation to help you if you need it during the import process - but the HTML 2 Articles import wizard is very intuitive and easy to use. Just click through the wizard, change settings where needed, and then queue your HTML files for upload.

Additionally, HTML 2 Articles is backed with a full guarantee and support, so if you do hit any problems at all during import of your HTML files, please send us an email and we'll be more than happy to help.

No need, it is quite simple to use
Value for money
Worthy for such advance support !
I used this to: Copy 1000 articles on my old personal website
Importing html pages directly into joomla articles.
Ease of use
Can't be easier, and is it ever fast!
Support is fabulous, quick responses - I had an issue with it not working correctly the dev logged into the site & had a solution.
On his web site, good enough.
Value for money
I think it's well worth the value, no easier way to convert existing html pages into Joomla.
I used this to: Importing over 1000 html pages that all had tables on them. This made short work of the import and conversion to joomla articles, so I could link the tables as related pages to the product pages.

It does exactly what it says it does, and the support is awesome fast, but you don't even need it since this tool has a well written documentation.
Thank you for designing this tool.
Keep up the good work!
I needed a way of very quickly importing tabular HTML data into Joomla articles, with control over the resulting publishing status and category, and HTML 2 Articles proved to be the perfect solution. I did have a few teething problems with my config, but the level of support from Barnaby was probably the best I have ever had from a Joomla developer. He is clearly very proud of his work and quite rightly so. Top marks!
I have to give 5 stars for the software and support. At first, I tested it with the most consistent HTML pages with no images or links and oddly, it only saved about 20% of them.

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!

Ordered Wrong Extension

Posted on 27 November 2013
I didn't fully read the description and the software was not what I needed, nothing wrong mind you, I just didn't order the right stuff. I spoke with Barnaby and he refunded my money no questions asked. This guy is truly honorable, please buy from him with confidence.
This is an excellent extension for converting sites created in HTML into Joomla. If you have small or large sites which you want to convert to Joomla then this does practically everything. It may be necessary to clean up a few minor points after conversion, or perhaps you may need to tweak the parameters to suit the pages. I found that trialling a few pages before doing any extensive conversion is a good way of getting these parameters to an optimum configuration. And it is FAST!

I found a bug in the software a few days ago, and Barnaby sent me an updated version within a couple of days which resolved the problem. So support is great, and Barnaby is very helpful.

All in all, I am very pleased with this extension and have hundreds of pages to convert. With this it will be really easy.

This is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review of a Joomla extension. I researched high and low for a tool to help convert static sites to Joomla articles and this is the only fit I found. The only worry I had was that a review hadn't been posted recently so I was unsure whether it worked with Joomla 3.1. It does! Further when I mentioned to the developer I needed specific tags removed he added it to the script for me. Saved me days of work. at least. Excellent product. Excellent support. Very worthwhile investment.
I have a very large Joomla site that holds help articles. We have to convert 1000's of articles from our old Robohelp files and because we have so many articles, this is a huge undertaking. I found this component and it has been great. It does convert many files at a time... and it is fast. Although we have some cleanup, it eliminates much of the work. I was concerned it would crash the database if there was too much work based on this component but that has not happened. Fast, efficient, and it is worth the money!
We purchased the professional version of Html2Articles because we wished to import a large number of html files that had been created by a software help authoring package (HelpnDoc). Html2Articles provides lots of useful functionality for this task including lots of switches and filters. Because our Joomla site is quite customized and has additional security features we ran into some initial problems. We contacted Barnaby directly by skype and found him to be very responsive and helpful. With some input from him we were able to get Html2Articles working correctly. We were also able to adapt his module ourselves to add additional functionality whereby imported articles can be automatically associated with existing menu items. This lets us edit our help documentation as needed and then reimport in batch mode very efficiently. Without Html2Articles we would have needed to do a huge amount of manual editing and configuration on the Joomla side. It would have been nearly impossible to maintain concurrent edits of our base documentation and our website. The only other alternative would have been to link to the raw html, which would have serious security flaws.

We agree with other reviewers that Html2Articles fills an important functional need in the Joomla software ecosystem. It somewhat surprises us that this functionality is not part of the core.
