Reviews

Lots of thanks

I’m glad I’ve found this plugin. At first I’ve just decided to run a free demo and when I have had some problems with the migration, support team really helped me. After that I proceeded with full migration and now I have a great website on WordPress. Plus, I didn’t lose any part of my content. So, I really appreciate your job, guys, and this service which works like a clock. Thanks a lot for your support!

Great Job Guys

I was looking for the opportunity to convert my MediaWiki site to WordPress and suddenly I have found this tool. Cms2cms migrated pages, posts, categories and images so easily that I couldn’t believe it was true. It didn’t transfer the theme but I don’t think this is a problem because to tell the truth WordPress has better themes to choose.
So, I think that it is a really great plugin and it just does what it says. Thanks a lot!
