Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator
[resolved] [Plugin: Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator] Imported posts are incomplete (9 posts)

    I'm using version 1.3.9 of the plugin and when I migrate content from wordpress to joomla the majority of the posts are incomplete. It seems to be chopping off the article text partway through the body of the stories

    I have just tested this release again and it migrates the content well. can you please send me an mysql dump file of your joomla installation - then I can test it.

    can you please give a short reply what the reason was. as this topic is now "resolved" and I have not set this status, you may have found a solution.

    After further investigation it turns out that the problem was caused by smart quotes in our joomla content. The plugin worked fine once we were able to clean up our data.

    Christian..

    Thanks a lot for ur plugin.

    I faced a similar issue and finally ended up adding the following line
    mysql_set_charset('utf8',$CON);
    in the function j2wp_do_wp_connect() right after the mysql_select_db function. That solved my issue.

    You might want to add an option for selecting the char_set in the plugin's admin area .

    Once again ... thanks for the wonderful work you've done. :)

    I have added a new option in the settings panel.

    I'm having just the same problem with the newest version, whether I use the "utf8" option or not. The joomla content contains german special characters, and the posts are chopped off where the first of them appears.

    Any idea for this?

    Thanks!
