With all it's plugins - I'm afraid no. Even if some type of conversion is done properly, would you want to have Joomla with kind of unclear prebuilt structure?

I've worked with both, and for my money, I'd select WordPress every day of the week over Joomla. There's a reason why Joomla only has 7% of the CMS market share and WordPress over 60%.

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Simple is not a word Joomla recognizes. You might want to take a look at https://www.joomlashack.com/blog/joo...ite-to-joomla/

One way to get around this is to install the WordPress "MD5 Password Hashes" plugin before you do the import. This plugin converts the WordPress passwords into MD5 which Joomla can understand

regards,

Is there a simple way to convert WordPress site to Joomla? Clear answer: most likely not. Don't convert, set up a new application. Usually, hosting provider have one-click-installer for installing either Joomla and Wordpress with few clicks only.

Yes it is possible to convert your wordpress website into joomla.
You need follow the below instructions:

- First you need install the Jconverter extension & Joomla
- Get all your wordpress data details from WordPress files
- Then go into Joomla site and go to Extensions > JConvertor > Configuration and add all database which you collected from WordPress
- And click to start the conversion & check your all data which you added into Joomla
- Hope this will help you positively, & itís very easy to follow.

Can I ask why? What makes Joomla better then Wordpress? I ask only becaouse I usally see it the other way around. Where users are changing from Joomla to Wordpress.

As per my knowledge
  • Wordpress are easy to handle
  • WordPress easy rank in search engine,
  • Wordpress admin panel is very user friendly,
  • WordPress has some great secure plugins that help to protect your website
I mention here some points, but still there are lots of points that shows
wordPress is better than other framwork
