Wordpress to Joomla

Post by Roundhouse » Mon Apr 16, 2012 4:17 pm

I am sorry if this has been posted/asked before, but I am looking to switch from the Wordpress platform over to Joomla. Is there a way I can retain all my exisiting posts and their post date from wordpress while moving to Joomla. Also, if I would be able to keep my uploads (images)?

Thanks

You could move your WordPress site to a subfolder and link to it from your Joomla site as a subfolder or sub domain. You could use this extension to load your Wordpress site within your Joomla site keeping the Joomla template's layout and look.

You could use this extension to Import your WP site into Joomla, you would need to install the JomComment extension to keep your comments.

You have some other choices for extensions to use here;

hi,
actually there are dozens of converters, but i personally give my preference to this extension http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ools/23642 because it migrates all the posts, pages, categories, images to joomla, plus it's available to set up 301 redirects from old wp urls to joomla that is a huge advantage. to be sure you may try free demo preview. also if you have the plugins as WP seo by Yoast and nextgen gallery, this extension converts their data to sh404sef and phoca image callery respectfully, but you should install them previously.
