Site transfer to Joomla!CMS from other CMS
We have received several interesting questions regarding a possibility to transfer a site to Joomla! CMS (content management system) from any other CMS. This question appears most often when people get interested in distant learning system JoomlaLMS and think of purchasing it. As JoomlaLMS is compatible only with Joomla! CMS, i.e. is a component for it, this causes the question concerning site transfer to Joomla! CMS possibility.
Let’s try to answer this question step-by-step.
It is possible to single out certain steps that allow to estimate the real work amount needed for the site transfer to Joomla! CMS. The steps are as follows:
So the first step is to determine the functional components of the n-CMS system and we look for the same functionality for Joomla! CMS. This step is rather simple and can take a couple of days at most.
To sum up the above mentioned it is obvious that the site transfer from n-CMS to Joomla! CMS isn’t so very different from the creation of a new site based on Joomla! CMS, but also isn’t something overly difficult. The process is simplified by the fact that in this case all the site materials are ready and the design with all graphics and CSS styles is created as well as there is a vast Joomla! CMS extensions functionality.
There are also simpler solutions for site transfer. There is a plugin that allows to transfer sites from Word Press to Joomla! CMS automatically. You can get more information about this plugin here.
Unfortunately it has such a disadvantage as being compatible only with Joomla! 1.5.
