JConverter 1.7 Release

One of the feedback we have received from JConverter users is that though JConverter is great at importing all the content from WordPress, they still need to manually setup the menu items for imported content. It was indeed a big issue since our primary objective of developing JConverter was to eliminate the manual effort needed to convert a WordPress site to Joomla.

But now, that’s a thing of the past. Latest JConverter release (1.7) allows users to import WordPress menu items and not just that, it also preserves the menu hierarchy and associates the link target correctly with imported content (post, page or category) or external/custom link. Isn’t that great? Apart from menu import feature, version 1.7 also includes some enhancements and fixes for minor bugs.

If you have been struggling to convert your WordPress site to Joomla then download JConverter now. All it takes is simple configuration and one click to convert any size of WordPress site to Joomla.

All existing JConverter customers should already have received a copy of latest version by email. If not, please contact us.

Ajax RSS Feeds PRO Module for Joomla

Google Ajax RSS Feeds is one of the most popular Joomla module we have developed so far after JConverter. The popularity of the module can be seen by the number of feedback and comments on the module page on our Joomla extensions demo site.

Though the free version has all the elements of a wonderful RSS feeds display module, it had a few limitations like number of feeds in the module was fixed and it wasn’t highly configurable. We have launched the PRO version of the module which overcome these issues. PRO version comes with the features mentioned below.

  • Supports unlimited RSS feeds. (Standard version supports only 3)
  • PRO version comes with CSS file bundled which makes it highly customizable in terms of styling. (Standard version loads the CSS directly from CDN hence it’s not easy to override the default styling)
  • Non-active blocks of feeds can be collapsed automatically.
  • Plus lots of configurable options to make it work like you want it, e.g. transition speed, display duration, fading effect duration, sort feeds by time (load latest feeds first) among others.

You can take a look at the demo of PRO version here – Ajax RSS Feeds PRO Module Demo.

JConverter 1.5 Released

Recently we conducted a survey and asked our clients which feature they would like to see the most in JConverter and almost all of them voted to add support for importing images from WordPress to Joomla. Today we have released JConverter 1.5 which supports this feature along with another feature and a few minor bug fixes.

Support for importing images

As shown below, JConverter 1.5 has an option to enable import of images from WordPress to your Joomla installation. For import to work, you also need to provide complete (absolute) path of your WordPress site so JConverter can find the images.

jconverter supports importing images from wordpress to joomla

When a user imports a WordPress site with images option enabled, JConverter copies all the files under wp-content/uploads and copies them with same directory structure inside Joomla installation. This way URL to the images need not be changed and images also comes become part of Joomla installation. One might ask why to copy the whole uploads folder and not just selective images which are actually part of posts/pages. The reason why we decided to import/copy the whole folder is that because we are working on some other features where we plan to support import of non-native WordPress content, e.g. content created by plugins like gallery.

For import of images to work, both Joomla and WordPress installation must be on same server.

Support for post/page title alias

With JConverter 1.5 version, we are now supporting same title/URL alias which pages and posts have in WordPress. Though you’ll have to make additional changes to keep the URL’s exactly same but with this feature title alias is exactly same which is useful from SEO perspective if you WordPress site has good search rankings.

Minor bug fixes

Apart from the features mentioned above, we have fixed a few minor bugs mentioned below in JConverter 1.5 release.

  1. Sometimes alias for imported posts/pages was not set correctly or not at all set.
  2. Import of user fails if the username has any special characters.

If you are a subscriber to JConverter then you can download it from your Gumroad account. If you are a new user, you can purchase JConverter here – https://gumroad.com/l/JConverter
