Thinking about migrating Joomla to WordPress in free?
Follow these steps…
If you are returning a user to Geek Flare, you will notice the
change in design and URL structure.
Well, after two years of running my blog on Joomla! I decided
to migrate to WordPress for many reasons.
If you were like my running blog on Joomla + K2 and would like
to migrate them to WordPress then following steps would help
1. Migrate K2 items to Joomla Articles
If you are migrating from Joomla articles, then you can skip
this step. However, if you are using K2 items, I have explained
in details how to export
K2 items to Joomla articles .
2. Migrate Joomla Articles to WordPress
Now, it’s time to migrate Joomla articles to WordPress using
FG Joomla to WordPress
- Login into WordPress Admin
- Go to Plugins>>Add New
- Search for FG Joomla to WordPress
- Click on Install Now
- Click on Activate Plugin
- Go to Tools>>Import and you should see Joomla
(FG) in import tools list
- Click on Joomla (FG)
You will get a self-explanatory page where you have to enter
your Joomla information and once you are ready click on “Import
content from Joomla to WordPress.”
Overall process was much easier than I thought. Once you are on
WordPress, follow these to
optimize for performance .
