Migrating to Joomla from another CMS

Post by greene000 » Wed Nov 04, 2020 2:00 pm

There is a site, on a popular CMS, there are many pages, with content, pictures, functional blocks in the body of articles, prescribed meta tags and good positions in search engines. I counted more than 1000 pages to transfer. We want to slowly, in a planned mode, transfer it to Joomla. What are the tools for migration. Because we still want to change the structure, I understand that a lot will have to be done by hand, but nevertheless it is advisable to automate the transfer of the above-mentioned bulk of the content, at least just upload it to the article base without sorting or with minimal sorting, but so that html, tags, pictures, all this was carried over. Thanks.

depends..

I'd export it to excel, rearrange all to a j! format make it an XML and import again..

J2XML from eshiol can do that.

There are also paid services like cms 2 cms..

Dear members! I'm really confused. I came here to get help about shifting to Joomla. So I went through many threads
like
viewtopic.php?f=710&t=982850#p3617521
viewtopic.php?f=710&t=983532
viewtopic.php?f=710&t=983180#p3619001
viewtopic.php?f=710&t=983316
about migration but everyone came up with a different approach. Now I'm unable to decide which method I should use. Please give any authentic and time-saving method.
