Can I transfer existing www.wix.com site to Joomla?

Post by paradoxiss » Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:06 am

Hi, I'm new to Joomla.

It has been suggested to me that I transfer our existing www.wix.com website to Joomla.

Is this possible?

If so, can any one please give me guidance on how to do this?

Thanks!

You could certainly look at importing the HTML content of the site however the design aspects will be more tricky.
Check these import extensions http://extensions.joomla.org/search?q=import&t[]=3808
You will need to create the site,
find the Joomla! template that closest matches your requirements and tweak it.
Add any extensions to provide any additional functionality required.
Import the content.
Import the users (if any).
Suggest doing this to start with on a local development server before transferring the finished site to the remote host.

Just a few days ago I converted my WiX pages to Joomla using this extensions http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... port/23642. The whole process of migration took me no more than 15 minutes. So, I was really pleasantly surprised. Currently I’m still trying to move another part of the content manually. Anyway, you should try free demo migration to see how extensions works.

That is actually a very good question, there is not much info on Wix to Joomla migration on the web. I know there are automated converters that do that - FG and cms 2 cms. I am not sure if FG supports Wix to Joomla migration, but cms 2 cms does. Here is a link, you can check it out https://www.cms 2 cms.com/cms/supported-c ... migration/
