Our Process for Joomla to WordPress Conversion

So, what does the migration from Joomla to WordPress all entail?

  • Review and analyze the Joomla website
  • Create backups of the Joomla website

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Joomla Better Than WordPress?

It is worth noting that both WordPress and Joomla are open-source, self-hosted content management systems that have been around for many years.

As a blogging platform launched in 2003, WordPress is today a multi-purpose content management system that powers over 40% of all websites on the Internet (including much more than just blogs). WordPress holds an even more dominant position in the content management system market, with a share of 40.0%.

Joomla was launched in 2005, making it almost as old as WordPress. Joomla is the second most popular content management system behind WordPress, powering approximately 3% of all websites on the Internet. Joomla represents 5.4% of the market for content management systems.

Although Joomla retains this second place position for the time being, its market share in the content management system market has been declining since at least 2010, and its market share in the website market shrank for the first time ever in 2017.

You can see this trend in action visually by comparing the Google Trends comparison between "WordPress" and "Joomla" over the period between 2004 and 2015. Joomla was actually leading or equal to WordPress until 2010. As a result, WordPress continues to grow, while Joomla is slowly moving in the opposite direction. Joomla does not, however, have nothing to offer.

WordPress Advantages

  • WordPress is commonly regarded as the easiest content management system to use, especially for non-developers.
  • WordPress distinguishes between "posts" and "static pages" right out of the box, whereas Joomla offers only a single "article" type that can be categorized.
  • By far, WordPress has the most comprehensive ecosystem of WordPress plugins and WordPress themes, making it easy to extend a website with a wide range of different features.
  • Due to the popularity of WordPress, there is a large third-party community of blogs, Facebook groups, and developers that can provide support.
  • Due to the massive community, it is also possible to get development work done at a lower cost.

Joomla Advantages

  • Joomla offers a more sophisticated system for managing users and controlling user access.
  • Joomla's components and modules provide a greater degree of flexibility for displaying content types that are not standard.
  • Joomla provides multilingual support by default, whereas WordPress requires the use of a third-party plugin.
  • Joomla allows you to use different templates for different pieces of content, but WordPress only allows you to use one theme.

Can A Beginner Use WordPress?

WordPress is an easy platform to learn. As WordPress is as easy to use as a word processor, it is simply a matter of learning how to navigate its point-and-click interface. These WordPress fundamentals will also not take you long to learn. And as you learn more about WordPress, you will discover that it grows and expands along with you, allowing you to learn as much as you wish.

If you are just getting started with WordPress, you may be confused or frustrated. This is why it is vital to grasp the basics of WordPress as early as possible. Are you familiar with what WordPress is and how it works? If not, reach out to our team for WordPress administration training.

Is WordPress Free?

The WordPress software is released under the GNU General Public License (or GPL), which allows anyone to download, edit, customize, use, and even sell it as long as it is licensed under the GPL.

The software itself is free, but you may need to pay for:

  • Web hosting
  • Premium support
  • Premium themes
  • Premium plugins

How Do I Convert Joomla To WordPress?

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. If your previous website contains complex functionalities such as message board, directories, and e-commerce, then we would have to setup similar functionality and migrate the content/data into WordPress. Sadly, there is no easy button that exists to make this migration happen instantly.
