[resolved] Import data from live online joomla site (5 posts)

    I just wanted to check - I want to migrate from Joomla to WP - if I specify the details of my live site (I want to try this on my test site first) will it remain intact or is there a possibility that importing the data into the WP site will cause problems?
    Thanks in advance.

    When you run the migration, it only modifies the WordPress site where you installed the plugin. It doesn't write on your Joomla site.

    Thanks - I actually tried it on a test site just in case - I had read about a plugin to convert Joomla to WP and someone said it wrecked their joomla tables...
    So thanks for answering, now I know!

    Export your data, convert it to a .csv file then use CSV 2 POST to import it again into your WordPress blog.

    The export would need to take all the data you want to make use of including meta data.

    You obviously feel a need to get onto WordPress. I would not give up if you feel that WordPress is the right solution for what your doing. You might hold back your website and productivity.
