Support » Plugin: FG Joomla to WordPress » Images import, kinda of but are broken

  • Resolved teclive


    Hello there, hope you are doing well.
    First off, I would like to say, I love this plugin and have used it a few times. I plan on purchasing the full version with a few addons at some point.

    It has taken me several attempts to get the articles imported, there are 31 categories and 400 articles. It is still running, and, hopefully almost done. I have had to resume quite a few times.

    My problem is, it says the images are imported. I look in the media manager and see that the images are kind of there, they don’t show as images, but grey icons. On the front end, all of the images show as broken.
    I have attached a screenshot that has an overlay of the front end along with the media manager.
    Media library, broken images

    Thank you kindly

    What did you put in the URL field in the plugin settings?
    It must contain the URL of the original Joomla site.

    And did you get any error messages in the log window?

    Hi there, thank you for the reply. I could not connect to the database, I tried everything, so I had to import the joomla tables via phpmyadmin. So I was not able to put the url of the site where the Joomla! was installed.

    I just purchased the full version along with the jcomment addon. I started everything over from scratch, new WP install and such.
    Again though, I cannot connect to the database of where the Joomla site is. The WordPress and Joomla! are on 2 different servers.

    I tried to add the domain and the ip in “Remote MySQL” but that did not help either.

    I followed the steps from here

    I know my info for the database is correct, so not sure how else to do it so I can get the images over

    The error I am getting is…
    [ERROR] Couldn’t connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database.

    Even if you copied the Joomla tables to the WordPress database, you must put the URL of the original Joomla site in the URL field.

    If Joomla and WordPress are located on two different servers, you must export the Joomla tables and import them on the WordPress database. Then, you must use the WordPress credentials in the database parameters.

    If you have got the Premium version, please open a ticket on
    This forum is for the free version only.
