Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator
Fails with empty WP table prefix (2 posts)

    I installed WordPress with no table prefix (admittedly, this required me to edit the config file by hand) and due to line 57 of joomla2wp-mig.php, where the string length of the 'j2wp_wp_tb_prefix' option is checked, the converter refuses to work.

    Disabling that check and running the converter (using the "multiple servers" option even though I have only a single server - it seems the option needs to be used if Joomla is in a different Database, too) it sort of worked.

    "Sort of" means it turned nearly all my links and embedded images into plaintext by removing the opening bracket. I don't see any system in this - sometimes the opening bracket is removed, sometimes the opening bracket and the a (from 'a href') and sometimes the links stay intact.

    Also, it didn't migrate any of the comments. That was the sole reason for me to use this tool.
