Converting Drupal-site to Joomla?

Post by Tryffelsvinet » Thu Apr 14, 2011 12:02 pm

I run this swedish drupal-site http://Mobler.se. Is it easy to convert from Drupal to Joomla?

The reason for this conversion is that my site-admins are more into Joomla and prefer working in this system. They think it can be done quite easily. Is there any good examples on how you do this? Ideas?

No go..you need to d a database conversion and you need a program to do that for you. Within Joomla such a tool does not exist and you need Joomlancers.com or Freelancers.com or similar for assistance

What was the experience like? Did you do the conversion? How much did it cost? Was it smooth?
To me, it AMAZES me that no one has written code for this conversion, given that Joomla and Drupal are competitors, and it would make sense if you want people to adopt Joomla to give them the means to convert from other platforms!

I only found this tool http://[spam]/1oBz4Y for switching from Drupal to Joomla that doesn't involve dealing with databases and is automatic in most part. You should also regularly check the extensions directory, as new ones are added.
