If you ’ve been trying to migrate your site from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 1.7 or Joomla 2.5, you know how difficult it can be. Tools like JUpgrade have made our life a lot easier but even JUpgrade only migrates the articles and menu items. The meta tags you ’ ve created with iJoomla SEO? They get left behind.
If you have a significant number of articles, that’s a real problem. Copying and pasting all these meta tags can take hours, and because Joomla 1.5′s database structure is so different from that of Joomla 2.5 it ’ s impossible to do make the move directly on the database.
So we ’ ve built you a new migration tool. iJoomla Migrate allows you to export the meta tags from an old site and import the meta tags to the new site. It’s very simple.
But… iJoomla Migrate ONLY works if you use the JUpgrade migration extension to create your new site. Other tools will change your article item IDs.
