Hi Barnaby,
This is a pre-sales question. I think your extension is the solution I have been looking for to migrate from 2.5 to 3.x. I have one extension not compatible w/3.x but I have uploaded another to replace it. The bigger issue may be that the current template is not 3.x compatible. I prefer to keep the simple layout and work on design once stable on 3.x.

I believe the simple Protostar template is default in 3.x, but obviously the right version is not in 2.5. The template would suffice until I had time to work on design and layout w/a more robust template style.

How is this situation best handled?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Daniel

Thank you for your question.

The way to handle this is to first run the migration as normal. This will set up a new environment for you, which will include the full migrated system, but won't be 'live'. You can then experiment with the Protostar template (and if you've used it in Joomla 2.5, your old configurations and module positions will have been migrated to Joomla 3 along with the rest of the system, and the template will have been upgraded where required).

While you're experimenting, your live site will stay where it is, so it won't cause any strange problems for anyone browsing your site. Just set up the new system as you want it, and then when you're ready click 'Go Live' to make the new system live.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions at all.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hello. Left a message a few days go about being unsuccessful at migrating two Joomla 2.5 sites to 3.x with migrate me plus.

Still have yet to experience any success with either site (or any site) and am still waiting for a reply to my initial Email.

Good morning Chris,

Thank you for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear the migration hasn't worked well for you - we'll get that all sorted right away.

I haven't received an email from you (and have checked very carefully) so I regret your initial email might have not arrived somehow. Please do resend the original email, or reply directly to this message and we'll get you up and running.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

Thank you Barnaby for your fast, courteous and fantastic customer support. You took the worry away from the migration of my two Joomla! 2.5.x sites and was able to quickly resolve the problems I was encountering using Migrate Me Plus. Both sites are now running smoothly on Joomla! 3.5.1
Again, thank you ever so much for your help.

we bought a licence at 2016/April/04 and in the next day we ask for a change of the email linked to our purchase
Until now...
1. we didn't get any answer
2. now, with the original email we can't download the software - we get the answer "You do not have any available downloads. Please check your email address"
3. happens the same with the new email that we ask for the change
So now we don't have access at all to the software that we already pay.

Waiting for your help...

Hello Barnaby, I have 2 Joomla 1.5 sites that I need to migrate to Joomla 3. Can Migrate Me work to migrate the Zoo, PreachIt and JEvents extension data?

Hi Lisa,

Yes it should work well with those extensions.

The way to do it is: run the migration, and then install the latest version of each extension in the new Joomla 3 system.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi Barnaby,

This is a pre-sales question. I have gone through the testimonials and the tutorials and looks like a promising extension.

I work for an education organization here in Melbourne Australia. We have got 3 Joomla websites (2 Joomla 1.5 and 1 Joomla 2.5) which require upgrading to Joomla 3.4.8 at the earliest. All these Joomla sites are sub-domains of our main domain.

Joomla 2.5 site has many extensions and its about 6 gigs. Our Joomla 1.5 sites are smaller.

My question is do we need to buy both the Migrate Me and Migrate Me Plus extensions.

Hi there

Thank you for your question.

Migrate Me will only work with Joomla 1.5, and can migrate your data to Joomla 3.

Migrate Me Plus is for all other versions (1.6 onwards).

So if you have both Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 sites, you will need both Migrate Me and Migrate Me Plus.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon
