FG Joomla to WordPress
[resolved] Categories not created (6 posts)

    I've just imported 300 posts from a Joomla 2.5 installation.

    However everything comes in as "uncategorised" rather than the original categories in the Joomla site.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Rashid.

    A further question:

    I want to bring in certain articles (about 20 which are the main site pages) as pages into WP - and keep the category structure.

    Then the actual blog which has 300 articles.

    There doesn't appear to be any way of specifying which articles/categories to bring in at a time?

    It's either all or nothing?

    Also if I turn a "post" into a "page" will the redirect still work?

    Thanks,

    Rashid.

    What are your settings ?

    > It's either all or nothing?
    Yes, it is all or nothing. All Joomla articles are converted as posts, or all Joomla articles are converted as pages.
    The solution is to go in your database after the migration, and change "post" by "page" on the posts you want as pages.

    > Also if I turn a "post" into a "page" will the redirect still work?
    The redirect from Joomla ? Or from the post ?

    Hi Kerfred,

    What do you mean by "settings"? There aren't any as far as I could see.

    I just import as a post without an excerpt. (Tried both with and without).

    The redirect is in wordpress after converting from post to page.

    Thanks,

    Rashid.

    Ok - I got it working correctly. Dumb of me - I was actually using the wrong DB!

    Sorry for the confusion. :(
