Converting Blogger Pages into Joomla DB

Post by scottlw » Mon Apr 02, 2007 5:31 am

I am looking to convert my site myfilm.com from blogger to using Joomla. Any scripts that would strip out blogger code and then parse it into the Joomla DB for articles? Any ideas?
Thanks

You would most likely need to determine the Blogger Database schema and relate it back to the Joomla! schema, and then write your own custom mySQL conversion script. i don;t know of anything that has already been written.

Blogger has no database, it is all static HTML pages. Reading other threads on just HTML tells me I should just strip away the extra tags then cut and paste. I did find a script http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,982.0.html which another member posted. I will see if that works.

I have a Blogger hosted site, http://davedragon.rilysi.com, and I'm considering moving it to Wordpress or Joomla.
Going to Wordpress is easy, but I prefer an open source environment, if the conversion process is not too painful/time consuming and I don't lose too much of the hand coded functionality.

Is there a guide available here that could enlighten me on the steps to convert to Joomla and what is not supported on this platform?

Thanks in advance.

Update: As soon as I posted this message, I found the link: http://docs.joomla.org/Beginners and I'm digesting it now.
