Joomla/Mambo To WordPress Migrator

A plugin to migrate content from Joomla/Mambo to WordPress.

This plugin migrates posts, static pages and users from Joomla or Mambo to WordPress.

Tested with Joomla 1.5 Mambo 4.5.2 and WordPress 3.1

The WordPress Installation should be empty !!! No posts, pages or categories !!! Joomla and WP must be on the same MySQL Server !!!

If you want migrate the images too, copy them into the images folder of your wordpress installation and provide this directory in the plugin settings!!!

Go to the Plugin Admin Page and fill in the MySQL Connection Parameters !!!

You can choose under the WP Admin section on the Plugin Option Page if you want migrate all categories at once or select specific categories.

Start the Migration with the button on the Plugin Panel.

After sucessfull migration you can press the "Change Urls" button to change the links in the content of the posts.
