FG Joomla to WordPress

    I have downloaded the Joomla DB file from the old server. Can I upload that file using FTP and then select only specific categories to import into WP?

    It doesn't work like that.
    The plugin needs to connect to the Joomla database. It imports all the articles and all the categories from the Joomla database.
    If you just want some categories, you need to delete them from the database first. For example, you can import the Joomla database on localhost (after installing a Web server on your local computer), delete the categories and articles you don't want from the local database, and run the import by configuring the plugin with the localhost Joomla database.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'll try that way.
