What Do We Migrate?

What Do We Migrate?

When we convert your website from Joomla to WordPress, what do we all migrate? During the Joomla to WordPress conversion process, our team of web developers, designers, and marketers work together to effectively migrate your pages, posts, images, menu items, etc., and will also incorporate 301 redirects. By hiring our experts, you will avoid many hours of headache of copying and pasting your content between your current Joomla site to your new WordPress dev site. Below, we provide a list of all the Joomla elements we migrate over to your WordPress site:

  • CMS pages – we transfer over all your existing pages on your current Joomla site to the new WordPress site.
  • Images – our team brings over all the images relating to their content. If needed, our graphic designers may step in to create new graphics to replace the old ones.
  • Menu items – we will recreate your menu items in your site navigation, which allow your visitors to access your main category pages, landing pages, and blog posts.
  • Meta Descriptions & Page Titles – our designers and marketers will bring over your meta descriptions and page titles to retain the SEO effort.
  • 301 redirects – we will set up 301 redirects, which means we redirect all your current URLs to the new ones.
  • Blogposts – our team will also transfer over all the blogposts from your current site to the new site.

Why WordPress?

Why WordPress?

So, why choose WordPress? In addition to its ease of use, flexibility, and overall popularity, WordPress has many added benefits that win over website owners.

Although Joomla is a good CMS platform, it isn’t quite as flexible, user-friendly, or powerful when compared with WordPress. In addition, the learning curve is steeper. Compared to Joomla and some of the other CMS platforms out there, WordPress fortunately has much less of a learning curve and is more user-friendly than other similar CMS systems.

A WordPress website provides:

  • Control over your website
  • User-friendly administration
  • Website customization without advanced technical skills
  • Easy front-end options
  • Website hosting with few resources

Take control of your website by switching over to WordPress! Our experts will be happy to discuss with you all your project requirements to get your website professionally converted over to WordPress. Just give our specialists a call at (800) 796-8263 to get your quote today!

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.

Is Joomla better than WordPress?

While Joomla and WordPress are both open-sourced software and are community-centric. Similarly, they both use themes, templates, plugins, extensions, and modules to extend the features. Joomla typically has more built-in features than WordPress. However, WordPress is more popular and is renowned for its easy-to-use interface. Plus, their global community is huge; they have lots of plugins and themes. WordPress has over 55,000 plugins, giving you more options to build the website of your dreams.

The fantastic thing about WordPress is that you don’t need to be an expert to use it. All it takes is some familiarity learning how to handle it, and once you know how to use it, it’s only a matter of pointing and clicking! This a software that will grow with your learning, and soon enough, you’ll find yourself using it, and you will learn you’re not a beginner anymore!

Prior to WordPress, a lot of developers could only build websites that knew code such as HTML and CSS. Today people of all abilities are building their own websites. WordPress uses CMS, which allows you to begin with a fully designed website.

Plus, if you don’t understand their themes or plugins, there’s lots of support available! There are so many people who use WordPress; there is always solutions out there to overcome your struggle.

WordPress being free is often a common confusion amongst many website builders. First of all, WordPress is available due to the GNU General Public License (GPL). Basically, this means that you can download it, edit, customize and sell code, as long as it’s under the GPL license. On the contrary, if you want to host, access premium support, premium themes, premium plugins, or anything else, then you might need to pay for them.

Unfortunately, at Webcitz, we don’t use migration tools to do this, just like a lot of other development companies. If you’re thinking about making the switch, the best advice we can provide you is to begin a new development with us on the WordPress platform. Then, once the website is developed, you can bring over your content.

If your previous website contains complex functionalities such as message board, directories, and e-commerce, then we would have to launch a similar functionality and migrate the content/data also. Most of the time, there’s not a simple magic button that exists to make this migration easy.
