If you’re currently using Joomla, it’s high time to consider migrating to WordPress. WordPress is one of the most powerful and exciting CMS platforms available today. The good news is that you’re in the right place to make a smooth and swift transition from Joomla to WordPress.

There are several advantages to using WordPress, including ease of use, better blogging capabilities, a larger selection of plugins and themes, a vast support community, and lower development costs.

When we start to convert Joomla, we often use many plugins and platforms such as WordPress, Wpforms, Elementor, WPBakery, WooCommerce, TranslatePress, Rank Math, Gravity Forms, Contact Form 7, Slider Revolution, MailPoet, WPML, etc.

We do not recommend this method, but it is possible to migrate from Joomla to WordPress using various plugins. However, some manual adjustments may be necessary after the migration is complete.

  • Themes/Plugins: Your Joomla theme and its plugins may not work with WordPress, so that we may need a new WordPress theme and plugin alternatives.
  • Shortcodes: Shortcodes insert various types of content into Joomla pages and posts. However, WordPress shortcodes may differ and require updates.
  • Images: Your Joomla website images may need to be optimized for WordPress. This may involve resizing, changing file format, or adding image alt text.
  • SEO: Your WordPress website’s SEO settings should be updated after migrating from Joomla for optimal Search Engine optimization.

There are varying opinions on which is better between WordPress and Joomla. When it comes to SEO, customization options, and content management, WordPress emerges as the top choice. Additionally, it is easier for new users to learn and is widely used, giving its users better support. For further details, you can check this article.

  1. I have run an SEO checker on my website and have run into several issues.

    It says h1 tags are missing. I’ve read that Joomla uses h1 or h2 tags for menu items. But my site isn’t. The issue is I don’t use a text heading on my page; I use a graphical one. And I use h4 for subheadings because h2 is too large. But I read that Google uses h2 tags for keyword ranking. Also, it says the NoScript tag contains HTML elements. I don’t know where to go to fix that. The canonical tag is missing. Why would my site need this tag? My links use the preferred URLs, and I have URL rewriting turned on. Where would I put this missing tag? Is this something that you can help me out? If yes, please let me know to open a project here.

    • You might want to consider them because you don’t have any headings on some pages. We have also used this plugin in the past. We don’t believe there is a way to have them without showing them on the page.

      “Canonical tag is missing.” Joomla generates multiple instances of some content. We’re not aware of any way to fix this within the core installation. Several extensions can manage this. Please read the content on this page WordPress SEO services and then create a new ticket and share your link and credentials for a detailed analysis.

  2. Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information specifically the closing phase 🙂 I care for such information much. I was seeking this particular information for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.
