Note. This plugin installs connection bridge on WordPress website, which is necessary for data exchange between Joomla and WordPress websites. After activation, you’ll be redirected to CMS2CMS website in order to complete the migration.

Website design (styles, themes) isn’t migrated.

Steps to Take before Migration

  1. Install WordPress and make sure that Joomla and WordPress websites are available online.
  2. Have Joomla website FTP access details at hand (host, username, password) - you use them to install connection bridge on Joomla website.
  3. Set up custom URL structure for WordPress (it should be set before the migration for internal links to work correctly, if you change them after migration, site navigation will be broken).
  4. Install WordPress plugins supported by CMS2CMS (if you want to migrate metadata or image galleries).
