WordPress to Joomla Extension: How It Works

  1. 1.     How to Migrate WordPress to Joomla! 3.x With CMS2CMS    
  2. 2.     The competition between WordPress and Joomla! has benefited the users greatly. Due to the                            fact that they have been presenting a serious competition to each other over the last decades –                                  the platforms have evolved greatly to provide us now with what we call a perfect CMS.                                            When looking at WordPress vs. Joomla! 3.x ­ one is better than the other. Despite the fact that                                    they were both clumsy, badly written and had lots of security holes at the very beginning of their                                    path – nowadays they both present a great foundation for creating everything that looks good and                                works well. At least at this point there is no a clear cut winner between them, and a great deal of                                          buzz around them is going back and forth in the sphere of web market. Let’s try to outline all the                                        ins and outs of these two platforms for you to have the possibility to make the right choice.  Those who wish to build powerful websites or extended web projects without having to worry                              about all the coding, and technical aspects of it – WordPress is a way to go. Enjoying the fame                                      of being the most user­friendly and efficient platform out there – WordPress has achieved its                             
  3. 3. pinnacle of success over the last years. Presently it covers a lion’s share of the web market                                  being trusted by millions of people all over the globe. Despite all the benefits associated with                                WordPress, it indeed has some drawbacks that make some people gravitate towards another                          platforms. Let’s try to focus on them:      1. Security (being the victim of its own success – the platform has security holes).  2. Cost of Maintenance (the fact that WordPress installation and usage is completely free                            doesn’t necessarily mean that its maintenance is free of charge as well. Be ready for some                                financial investments for your hosting, tools and some plugins).  3. Customization Complexity (you are going to have a hard time if you plan to customize your                                  WordPress site without the drag & drop tools).                The latest releases of Joomla! 3.x came with serious improvements under their hood. Though                            Joomla! has a bit steeper learning curve than WordPress, its “complexity” allows it to be a much                                 
  4. 4. more versatile solution. Let’s now dive deeply in those Joomla!x3 features that made their best to                                take the CMS crown from WordPress:        ● Extensions Variability: The extensions library is packed with tons of amazing and free                          to use  plugins.  ● Strong Content Management Capabilities: Unlike WordPress, Joomla was originally                  developed as an enterprise­grade CMS that makes it far more preferable when handling                          a huge number of articles.  ● Extensive User Permissions: The feature allows up to nine different types of user                          permissions for those running running a website with a wide range of users access                            content.    With all that being said, you have great opportunities with both above­mentioned platforms – but                              it’s up to you to make the final choice. Once you’ve evaluated all your website needs and                                  requirements and Joomla! 3.x sounds like a good choice for you – give a try to CMS2CMS                                  automated migration service to cope with all your migration hassles and inconveniences.                        Following the next instructions one­by­one you’ll have your WordPress website content imported                        to Joomla! 3.x as seamless and stress­free as possible.          1.
