I bought the premium version for virtuemart and zoo, and everything worked perfectly!
I won at least 2 weeks of work!

Thank you

Brilliant!

Worked great!
I have imported with the premium plugin a website with ~10000 articles from Joomla 1.0 (yeah, I know) to WordPress 4.5.2

Thanks for this awesome plugin :)

If you need it, you really need it

We used this plugin in late 2015 to convert a large Joomla site to WP. If you have 10 or 20 Joomla articles, you probably don't care about a plugin; you'll just copy and paste. But if your site is any reasonable size, almost any plugin, no matter how half-baked, would help. Fortunately, FG Joomla to WP is anything but half-baked -- it worked amazingly well. We encountered a weird problem with one test iteration of WP, but on our main site almost every article converted cleanly. Even more impressive, all of the links (hundreds of them) worked.

So should you buy the premium version? Yes, if your time and sanity are at all valuable. For example, the premium version converted all of our numerous menus converted perfectly. That alone justified the very reasonable cost. FG has added even more features since we used it.

I cannot imagine converting a Joomla site of any reasonable size without using this plugin.

Awesome plugin

Imported nearly 60,000 articles from Joomla. Works great!

I own a a large website (heavy traffic). I imported nearly 60,000 articles from Joomla to WordPress. It works great. The plugin times out at every few thousand articles, which is normal, I would just "resume" and it worked like a charm. I didn't even need the 301 redirects to maintain my SEO... This plugin has the option to import the Joomla ID and Aliases, therefore all of the 60,000 Joomla articles maintained the same URLS. And of course, I cannot forget the great support from Frédéric, merci beaucoup!

Worked like a charm

I wasn't connecting to the database so I tried your suggestion to export .sql then import and run the migration using my wp login info. Worked great, thank you!

fantastic

After stacked with joomla for few years, I decided to move it to wordpress.
Light site with around 100-150 posts , multilingual site
tested first the free version,it worked so I bought the pro version plus the joomfish addon.
I had my site up and running the same day. (struggled a bit with menus but finally i got it to work-this must be mostly cause i am not quite familiar with wordpress)
Overall, great plugin and thank you frederic for providing this. It really saves a lot of time.

Great plugin, save me a lot of work

If you have old sites on joomla, this plugin is best solution I found.
Support is also good, they solve my problem with redirection, and release updates for plugin within few days.

Best support I've ever experinced

Migrating from Joomla 2.5 to WP 4.4.1. Using Premium version with the Groups plugin. Everything worked beautifully except and odd quirk with user groups. Worked with Frederic over several days. Unbelievable the attention he gave to my issue. End the end, we got it to work perfectly! Thank you Frederic.

One note about the possibility of the migration not completing in one pass: If you are in a shared host environment with a large migration including big media files (images, audio and video), the server will time out. Not a plugin problem. I needed to migrate from shared to VPS temporarily to migrate everything successfully.

The premium version and add-ons are worth every penny.
