Lifesaver

We used CMS2CMS for a particularly tricky wix to wordpress migration with a huge amount of content, links and images. The support was amazing. The devs were more than happy to help and the migration was a complete success. The test (demo) migration for you to see the results of the migration is free. Of course the full service is a paid service; but frankly, the cost is very reasonable and totally worth it as is saves so much time. Thanks CMS2CMS - your plugin and service is a livesaver!

Time Saver

I had a massive site to migrate for a client. My options were to leverage money or time. I decided on money. But paying for the CMS2CMS service, I saved a ton of money because I saved a ton of time. Will use this again on the next client migration process.

Useless

The first we used it, it didn't work so we have to open up a ticket, that the data is missing, it took them forever to resolve it so we have to message them for a refund and don't do anything anymore as we will just sort it out ourselves. We finished the site that day. The next day came the site is messed up so we read emails and we received that their team still continued with the migration process even if we told them earlier not to do so and just give us a refund. So we have to rework the site again with a furious client on the phone definitely, after we fixed it we sent them another message that "please don't touch anything and please don't do any and just issue us a refund, yet they kept on sending message that they are sorting it out and their tech will do it again, but we sent them for so many times that please don't do anything, I think this people can't understand english. Anyway after they messed up our site, we blocked their access and deleted their plugin and the folder they uploaded on our server that gives them access to our database. To the makers of this, just give us refund please, because your system is not working.

It ended in copy & paste 400 articles ourself manually

By the occuring bugs I found out, that they count the letters in each text paragraph by script .... but obviousely wrong. This counting method is used to set formats like bold/italic or the position of inline links. Becasue their method obviousely only supports plain ASCII chars or one-byte UTF-8 chars (one of both, not exactly sure) and counts wrong on ANY "special" char like the tripple dot, you only need to have a cite of a polish person with a name like "Lončar" to mess up your text. Citing in general is dangerous, as also quotation marks counted wrong. Be aware! There's not only an offset, means a misplaced format or link, we found cases where a paragraph was missing completely or the order of paragraphs was diced. Their support only tries to fix it cosmetically ... so if you tell them there's a problem with the letter Ä, they fix Ä ... but not the problem in general! We used the migration also for a different thing ... we paied extra for SEO resons the 301 redirections. As this Wix Software support for example German umlauts in the URL (non standard), but WordPress replaces them correctly (ü->u, ä->a, ö->o, ß->ss) also this part of the migration failed hard .... Asking for a discount, becasue their migration process is total crap resulted in "We are support staff and can't give a discount". So if you use ANY char in your URL or Text what doesn't fit in [a-zA-Z0-9] then be VERY carefull and compare EACH paragrapf and EACH permalink! If you have ANY language involved that is not english, it will fail with a probability of 100%! To add on ... it was NOTHING complex .... just a news site with mostly one picture per article, some cites, some links ... only the picture part was done without any issue.

Worth the Cost

This was great. I was very happy to pay the small fee to send over my content. All of the pages and images looked great, links worked, and I just needed to make a few tweaks before I went live.

Works just fine

I did migrate my Wix with over 100 posts and much more than that with images very easy with this tool. Ok, I paid almost U$40.00 to do that. But I would take so long doing manually. I had no problem at all. I really recommend.
