Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator
Images are not migrated (6 posts)

    The posts are well migrated but not the images.
    The images are not copied to the uploads directory. Even if we copy them to the uploads directory manually, they are not inserted in the database.

    I think the problem is near line 762 in joomla2wp-mig.php:
    $images_count is always 0.

    I'm using Joomla 1.5.23.

    I have written a plugin that can migrate the images in addition to the posts and categories.

    Hi, Frederic —
    I wrote to you via another thread. I tried your plugin but it didn't migrate images - at least, not into the database. The plugin displayed several errors, but images were migrated over - along with 'ghost' image file formats (a file with no image) - but they do still do not show up in articles.

    Here is my post:

    Since I wrote that post, I tried again. The 159 categories were migrated quickly, then it seems to take a long time …after 1 hour it is still "working" the import.

    Please let me know if you have other suggestions. Your plugin looks quite promising - I really thank you for your help!!

    BTW, you might want to get listed on WordPress. ;-)

    Thanks for your encouragement.

    I have fixed the issue concerning Joomla posts that don't have the «Read More» split. It will be released soon.

    For your images problem, it may come from a lack of privileges while accessing the images ; I use the copy function through a http connection.
    Or it may come from the big size of your database. Mine contains only 134 posts.

    Have you tried to run the migration in localhost with you Joomla database in localhost and your WordPress installation in localhost as well ?
