This plugin exports articles from a Joomla 1.5 database and imports them as posts into WordPress.
After you install and activate it, go to Dashboard > Tools > Import > Joomla 1.5. Enter your Joomla database connection information on the first screen, then enter your export/import info on the second screen and click "Import". It's really pretty simple and self-explanatory.
You'll need the basic database connection information, which is:
You can't - you can only export one category at a time. If you'd like to add that feature to this plugin, I'd love to integrate it.
Easy. Just upgrade to the latest version of WordPress, then use this plugin. (You should upgrade anyway for a huge number of other reasons, not just this plugin.)
Easy. Just migrate to Joomla 1.5 first, then use this plugin.
This plugin doesn't support Joomla 1.6 import at this time.
Because nobody coded it to do that. If you've got the time and know-how, I'd welcome any changes or updates to the plugin you can provide.
Easy. I wrote this plugin to migrate the website of The Girl Choir of South Florida, so the best way to say "thank you" is to make a donation to the choir. Follow the link and click on the "Give the Gift of Music" button. Or click on the Donate button on one of the plugin screens. You and the choir will both be glad you did.
If you're not sure what to contribute, ask yourself what you would have paid someone to convert or retype all of your articles for you, and donate that amount. Or $10 (US) ... whichever is greater.
All donations received from this plugin will go towards scholarships for needy families. You can see and hear the choir in action at their YouTube channel. They're amazing!
The Girl Choir of South Florida is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and your contribution may be tax-deductible. Details of the choir's charitable status are available on its web site at http://www.girlchoir.org.
