CMS2CMS Concrete5 to WP Migration

Greate service from CMS2CMS. The plugin is simple to install. You will be required to register on their website and also to install a small folder with three php files on the original site but once completed the transfer is relatively painless. Support is excellent and the team at CMS2CMS respond quickly to any queries. Would definitely recommend if you need to bulk transfer a lot of content between cms platforms. they do a variety, not just Concrete5.
