This feature is available for your website migration from:

  • Joomla 1.5.x-3.x
  • WordPress 3.x
  • Drupal 6.x – 7.x

And migration to the following CMSs:

  • Joomla 1.5.x-3.x
  • WordPress 3.x

After the migration, set up your new CMS menu. For various CMSs, this process differs:

  • WordPress

Go to WP admin panel -> Appearance -> Menu


After you press ”Edit menus” button proceed the following actions:

– Choose the menu from a list -> Press “Select” -> Go to Menu Setting -> Flag “Top primary menu” -> Press “Save menu” button.


  • Joomla

Joomla Administration -> Menus

Then, go to “Menu Manager” -> Press “Add a module for this menu type” -> Fill in the title name -> after you press “select position”, choose the location of your current template.

Drupal dashboard -> Structure -> Menus


If you want to try the migration using CMS2CMS WordPress test site (preview), the menu is set up automatedly and the procedure looks like the following:

  • If you migrate from Joomla to CMS2CMS WordPress test site, your Joomla Home menu is migrated to the test site.

  • When you migrate from the other CMS platforms to the test site, the last menu you have created, will be converted as the main menu on your WordPress site.
