I have migrated a WordPress site into Joomla using CMigrator component. But after the migration and while working in development server, there are some more articles added to the Production site.

I am stuck at this point now how to migrate those "new" articles and categories now in my Joomla website as I have finished all the work in it. But now I have the updated database of Wordpress site.

I only want to add the newly added articles from the time I have migrated the website.

Please guide me on this on how to proceed

    I have never used CMigrator from Compojoom before, but from the quick glance on their Documentation I can see that process involves importing dumped WP SQL into Joomla. I cannot say for sure, but I am afraid that such a process doesn't allow partial import, or differential import that you need. You should direct your Q to either developer or to their Forum. – Mikan Feb 14 '16 at 10:52

    Agree with @Mirko Mikan, I don't beleive you can import differential content from SQL. – user7746 Feb 14 '16 at 13:00

    Ok thank you for your responses. Surely I will ask to their official forum or developer. – Liz. Feb 14 '16 at 16:50

As per the recommendations, I posted the question in the official forum of CMigrator and thankfully I got the solution to it.

Following are the steps which were followed by me:

  1. Took the backup of the website
  2. Exported the new updated wordpress tables in joomla database
  3. Open CMigrator component > configuration wizard > select no for clean migration option. By doing so, the old articles are not deleted.
  4. All the new categories and articles which already existed in my website were now named as title cmigrator copy1.
  5. This helped me in differentiating the new articles from the existed ones
  6. Manually deleted all the cmigrator copy articles and categories.
  7. Manually moved the new articles to the old categories.
  8. My website now has all the updated articles from the Wordpress site.

Though this process was a little time taking but was worth it.

    Thank you @Ruchika for this great mini-guide. It's good to know that, in case we need to use that process in the future... – Mikan Feb 19 '16 at 9:39
  • yes @MirkoMikan I am glad to help. Because such a situation can arrive to any of us any time. Because clients can do anything ;) and we have to be prepared for it – Liz. Feb 19 '16 at 10:00
  • Yes @Ruchika, you are right. We might have such a job of converting WP to Joomla any day. Upwork is full of them... – Mikan Feb 19 '16 at 10:03
