WordPress to Joomla!

Post by thatgrrl » Thu Apr 11, 2019 4:13 am

I'm not the first person to ask about migrating sites from WordPress to Joomla! But, so far the answer seems to be JConverter which looks like an abandoned premium plugin/ extension. I'd rather not risk using it, or paying for it. The site no longer supports/ has documentation for the extension. The link from the Extensions Directory is 404.

Are there really no other options (not planning to use cms 2 cms) in all this time?

I have already started moving content over. But, it would be nice to make the job a little easier and keep comments with my posts. Not worried about moving images because the set up for the media files are too different from WordPress to Joomla!.

Is anyone secretly working on an extension to migrate from other CMS software? Or, is this a lost cause now with WordPress using their bloated block posts?

Playing devil's advocate here, what is it about Joomla that requires you to migrate? Why not stick with WP?
