MIGRATE TO JOOMLA 3.6 IN SECONDS - Get the fastest, best, latest version of Joomla right away with zero downtime, zero stress, zero headaches and the ultimate foolproof, fully supported upgrade method for Joomla!

Fully updated to migrate you to the latest version of Joomla 3.6

Migrate Me PLUS allows you to upgrade Joomla 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.x to the latest version of Joomla! in seconds.

You can now upgrade your Joomla system with just a single click.

The upgrade will completely update your filesystem and database to the latest versions of Joomla.

Your images, articles, data and files will all be perfectly maintained, and your google page rank will be completely unaffected.

As part of the upgrade, Migrate Me PLUS will take a full backup of your database and filesystem. This means you can test out the new version of Joomla, and then if you decide you don't want it, you can simply rollback your system to your old configuration.

A standard Joomla 2.5 system takes around 90 seconds to completely migrate to Joomla 3.

And in that time, Migrate Me PLUS will copy all your existing files, duplicate your database, install Joomla 3, update your Admin area, save all your articles and data and switch you to the new Joomla 3 Admin interface.

Press of a button! Even re-publishes the updated site at a click when you've finished testing. What could be simpler!

Ease of use

Checks everything as you go, backs-up your site to revert back (safety net), upgrades done in sub-directory before you Go Live, w/ one click

Support

WARNING! Your server may not be able to handle Migrate Me Plus’s greatness.

Yes, I did run into problems, but it was my server that had issues NOT Migrate Me Plus. Use the configuration settings to slow this race horse down, because my server could only handle pony rides.

Since my ponies were shivering in the barn, I contacted Barnaby for a much needed rescue from server shock. He was quick, efficient and most kind in response. He had me back in the race within an hour of getting my information. Barnaby for President!

Documentation

Don’t be shy, load it up and the comprehensive documentation is presented in .pdf with detail and graphics for any level user.

Value for money

The Migrate Me Tool and fast, knowledgeable customer service is priceless. Highly recommended and worth every penny. Full recommendation.

I used this to: We used this tool to upgrade our Joomla website from 2.5 to 3.4.

Have you built a Joomla site? Do you now want to import content to it, but don't want to spend hours and hours copying over all your old pages? Use HTML 2 Articles to import all your HTML page content to Joomla - in just seconds per page. 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.

The original Search & Replace component for Joomla - now updated to work with K2! Got an external link that you need changed in every page? No problem! Just search for it and replace it with the new link. You can search and replace any content in your articles in seconds. Search & Replace for Joomla is used to search & replace content in your Joomla articles. You can search for any word, HTML, or content, and replace it with whatever you like. Changes are stored directly in the database itself, which vastly speeds up page load time compared to other available components and plugins. Using this component you can quickly search & replace to add links, change spellings, cross-reference your pages, bulk update your content and so forth. Search & Replace can change content in Titles, Introductions, Main Content, or a selection of those - all at the same time. You can also select which categories to include in the search, and if the search finds any results, it will give you a list of the pages where the search term exists, along with links to view the page in your browser. Please note: Search & Replace does not affect the HTML stored in your template files. If you need to search & replace HTML content in your template files, please edit your template files directly. This component is extremely powerful, so please back up your database before you use it. How to use: 1. Create a backup of your database 2. Enter the text to search for 3. Enter the text to replace your search string 4. Press Search to search for page results 5. Press Replace to update your database & make all changes 6. Check your site for changes. Tips 1. Keep it simple. Longer search strings sometimes match less cases - often due to variances in whitespace 2. Disable your Joomla cache while you make changes so that you can instantly see what has been changed. 3. Look in the HTML source of your target page to select and paste the exact content you want to search & replace. 4. Sometimes text is rendered in your browser differently to the way it is stored in the database. The key to successful searches is to keep search phrases short and simple. I hope you find the component useful. Any comments or suggestions are very welcome, and where possible, suggestions will be incorporated into new versions of the component.
