Testimonials about FG Joomla to WordPress


4.8 out of 5 stars

Saved me days – Awesome support!
By , for WP 4.5.2

Your plugin has saved me an enormous amount of time already (days not hours) and for that I appreciate your development and your very prompt, in-depth support. Fred spent quite some time getting to the bottom of an issue I had importing Simple Image Galleries from Joomla to WordPress galleries. He cracked it though and saved me more time.

Best support I ever received!!
By , for WP 4.3

I bought the premium version and a additional plugin from this guy, and, unfortunately, it doesn't work in a first step.

So I wrote the plugin author, and the terrific journey starts.
He gave me remarkable attention, replied quick to my mails, tired some things in my WP installation and at the end he customized his plugin to work on my site!

This is the very best service I ever received!!! Thank you very much!!

Brilliant plugin - works brilliantly
By , for WP 4.1

I had to migrate content from a Joomla 1.5 site to WordPress, and this plugin saved me hours of work. I also had to migrate contacts from the Joomla Contacts Manager component - Frédéric even developed a new plugin for me to do this, and this was over the weekend. Fantastic support - great developer. Many thanks indeed

Great Plugin, Fast Customer Service Response
By , for WP 3.9.1

I installed fg-joomla-to-wordpress-premium-zoo-module, fg-joomla-to-wordpress-premium-jcomments-module and fg-joomla-to-wordpress-premium. I wanted to get posts and comments from Joomla with zoo extension, and it wasnt working, I freaked out....then I sent the email to developer, he replied right away and updated the plugin and email to me..

I would recommend it to anybody, it worthy your money.

Quick and easy
By , for WP 3.9

Ran a test with this and was surprised how quickly, well, and completely it pulled over the data. Top marks.

By , for WP 3.8.1

Usei a versão free e rodou perfeitamente. Como eu queria ter os autores copiados também, comprei a premium. Importei do Joomla 1.5, um site com mais de 5 mil artigos e 180 autores. Rodei ele localmente porque sabia que ia dar tempo limite esgotado, mas ele funcionou de primeira e baixou as imagens da internet perfeitamente. Valeu a pena o investimento.

Works well and great support!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Basic importer worked well but I bought the Premium and Flexicontent upgrades and they both worked well too. I required additions to be made to make the function work better and the developer was helpful and quick to implement them. Can't rate this high enough

This excellent plugin saves a huge amount of time converting older Joomla installations to WordPress. Very good indeed and worth every penny. The support is quick and effective.
