    Still trying to figure out:

    1.

    “…images from Joomla to the Plugin Images Directory!!!”

    Is is from: /images/stories

    to:

    /public_html/MigrationSubDomain/wp-content/plugins/joomla-to-wordpress-migrator/images

    2.

    “This is needed so that wordpress can determine the correct mime type of the images. “

    What is MIME here? Is it http://communication.howstuffworks.com/question334.htm

    Thank you!

    Thank you!

    I followed the instructions as you did and none of the images used in posts were converted. The correct location for images in WordPress is in the wp-content/uploads/ directory. Usually the media is categorized by year and month sub-directories.

    I was able to successfully migrate the Joomla content articles to WordPress posts, the Joomla categories to WordPress categories, and Joomla users to WordPress users. No images were migrated.

    to xenaco – which version of the plugin you have used??? it is inlcuded with the latest releases.

    the images have to be in the /images directory of the plugin folder and there in the structure you are using in the posts. if you have a href to /images/xyz/image.jpeg you have to put image.jpeg in the /images/xyz/ folder of your plugin directory.

    Thanks for the explanation. Since this is a new site intended to replace the Joomla site, I erased the first WordPress site and uploaded the newest plugin. I copied the images to the plugin images folder and the plugin migration and now the images now appear in the posts however they are not editable since WordPress expects images to be in the media folder. Joomla had images left aligned in the articles with the text to the right starting at the top of the image. The migrated article images are left aligned in the post but the text is aligned to the bottom of the image.

    This does not pose a huge problem and the site did migrate to WordPress in a most presentable way. Minor editing and it is nearly ready to go live. Huge amount of work saved using your plugin.

    Thanks for taking the time and effort to write this great tool and to make freely available to all.

    You are a gentleman.

    please get the latest release of the plugin.
    copy the images to a subdirectory of your wordpress installation and give this directory as “WP Images Folder” like:

    /wp-content/themes/yourtheme/images
    or
    /wp-content/uploads/2010/12

    Hi,
    I installed this plugin on my website but it gives fatal error while activating.
    Please help
