This is a basic "how-to" for converting from Joomla's SOBI2 business plugin... requires novice to intermediate knowledge of SQL.
- Install Business Directory Plugin
- Set up all the form fields you need to port from Joomla, e.g. Address and lat/long
- Record the form field IDs from the wp_wpbdp_form_fields table
- Export a CSV of SOBI2... Either purchase the SOBI2 exporter or write a SQL query
- Back up your database
- Install and activate the "Ultimate CSV Importer" Plugin
- Go to that plugin's menu and upload the CSV
- "Map" the CSV fields to the WPBD fields (refer to this image for inspiration)
- Click Import!
Hope someone transitioning from Joomla finds this useful!
