We've had a series of blog posts on how to migrate your site from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5.
This week we're going to focus on something simpler: moving only your content or users.
One of our students didn't need to migrate their whole site, only their articles. We recommended J2XMlL
What is J2XML?
J2XML is really only the first of 2 extensions. J2XML is the extension for exporting content from our of your Joomla 1.5 site. You can find it here at the JED.
J2XML Importer is the opposite: it is the extension for importing content into your Joomla 2.5 site. You can find it here at the JED.
Exporting your content from 1.5
First, let's export our Joomla 1.5 content.
Importing the content to Joomla 2.5
You'll now get a report on the import, together with any errors.
The message above mentions "User not imported" because this process will also work with users. Repeat exactly the same process as we've just seen, simply login to your Joomla 1.5 and click Export in your User Manager.
