Moving from Joomla to WordPress

July 25th, 2007 · 13 Comments

I’ve just moved most of my website content from the Joomla! content management system to the Word Press blogging platform. Both are Open Source projects, which I think is the main reason the migration was so painless.

All said it took an afternoon, but I am really impressed by how easy the migration has been, thanks largely to these six steps at rangit.com.

Additionally, when I needed to clean up my MySQL database, instructions on how to execute a find and replace in PHPmyAdmin came to the rescue – thanks to Chingali.

So I got all the coaching I needed to make the move myself – thanks to a couple of bloggers I’ll probably never meet. That’s the power of an open web.

The move will mean one big change – comments are now welcome across blog posts. Enjoy!
