time saver
By , for WP 4.5.3

The joomla 2.5 installation had most of the content in K2 and in two languages (joomfish) Fortunately all the content was not any complex, not extra fields no extra connections.
Because of the K2 and Joomfish we have to buy the pro version with add-ons (102EUR).
The import took about all in all 20minutes

Incredible data save for us!
By , for WP 4.5.3

This was an absolutely incredible dream come true for our organization. Without this plug in, it would have taken us weeks, if not months, to hand copy our data over, and we still would not have been able to transfer our complete user data or our forum posts and their attachments in their exact, continuous form - the most important things we needed. Basically, this saved us from Joomla hell and a major data loss.

I am eternally grateful to Frederic, including the fact we were able to hire him to do our migration, so I know it's done right. The plugin is a pure miracle for us and the work was lightening fast. BAM! Here's your data - done! Huge relief for us. Frederic, you have no idea how much you've helped me, and helped my org, and all the women we help. SO grateful. Mille mille mercis!

Works without hassle!

Aunque tardé 3 semanas para poderlo lograr, mudar 8mil artículos de joomla a wordpress en nuestrociclismo.com. Con algunos errores, el plugin me ha ayudado y ha cumplido su función.
La atención por parte del desarrollador, fue muy efectiva y me ayudó mucho, en verdad quedo muy satisfecha, es un gran plugin Frederic, felicidades y gracias por tu ayuda cada vez que te escribí.

Saved me days – Awesome support!

Your plugin has saved me an enormous amount of time already (days not hours) and for that I appreciate your development and your very prompt, in-depth support. Fred spent quite some time getting to the bottom of an issue I had importing Simple Image Galleries from Joomla to WordPress galleries. He cracked it though and saved me more time.

Absolument génial
By , for WP 4.5.1

Le plugin fonctionne très bien et est très rapide. J'ai utilisé les modules K2 et sh404SEF, j'ai pu importer environ 12000 articles en moins d'une matinée.

Le développeur du module m'a conseillé sur quelques points étant donné la taille de la BDD et du site.

Je recommande vivement et sans hésité.

Merci Gilles,
Bonne continuation

Great plugin and fantastic support!

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
