migrate Joomla 1.5 site to Wordpress

migrate Joomla 1.5 site to Wordpress was created by TammyDosSantos
Hi, I have an older website based on Joomla 1.5 which I am considering migrating to a Wordpress platform. Can you recommend either the "Joomla 1.5 Importer" or the "FG Joomla to Wordpress" ? Which one is best - or is there a better way?
The Joomla website has a few hundred pages, with quite a few pdf's.

Hi Tami,

I'm not familiar with the Joomla 1.5 Importer plugin. Could I get a link to it to take a look?

FG Joomla to WordPress is the standard though. Either way, you can create a test site and try out the process using both approaches.

By the way, here's our tutorial for creating a test site in Joomla:

Looking forward to your reply and helping more.

Kind regards,
Nick

Hi Nick,
thanks for your reply, I think I'll go with the FG plugin then. And I will do a test site first, good idea. I have followed a similar procedure before, your tutorial looks very clear! so hopefully it will go well.
By the way, do you have a tutorial or an article on using the FG plugin?

Hi Tammy

I've had good luck with the FG plugin before, moving from 1.5 to WordPress.

After moving, I used this plugin to redirect the URLs. It caught quite a lot of old Joomla 1.5 URLs that I wasn't able to manually redirect:
