Ternopil, UK -- (SBWire) -- 08/26/2013 --CMS2CMS, a young but already widely-known automated website migration tool, has developed robust features for migration from Joomla to WordPress and is happy to share the news with the world.

Content Migration

- Pages
Data from static pages (like About us page) will be moved into corresponding WordPress pages.

- Articles
All the articles from Joomla are converted into WordPress posts.

- Categories/Sections
The relations between them are preserved, after migration posts will belong to the same category they did before.

- Content Images
Images are moved to WordPress with the posts they belonged to on Joomla site.

- User Data
Users’ details are migrated including their username, email etc.

- Internal Links
The site navigation is preserved after migration, so links to migrated site content will be live.

- Comments
As out-of-the-box Joomla doesn’t support comments, they are migrated from JComments extension directly into WordPress.

SEO Migration

Since losing rankings and SEO juice after website migration is the major concern among website owners, CMS2CMS did their best to minimize any negative effects after Joomla to WordPress transfer.

- SEO URLs migration
All internal links will be formed accordance to the structure a user defines on the new WordPress site (this is optional).

Note. It is required that a client configures custom URL structure before the migration for this option to work as desired.

- SEO data migration
At the moment, it’s possible to migrate meta keywords and descriptions from sh404SEF Joomla extension into WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin (it has to be installed on WordPress site prior to initiating migration).

- Automated 301 Permanent Redirects
As an option, clients can choose to receive a set of redirect rules generated for their specific websites to insert into their configuration file. This is the best practice for preserving rankings and traffic after migration.

- JComments - directly into WordPress
