Working for Savorweb I got to work on a wide range of projects. This is just one of many I choose to share as it was a lot of work. I was approached with the concept of taking their existing site they had on Joomla 1.5 and port it to WordPress. I said I’d just build a custom theme and style it the same and bring everything over copy and paste style. Easier than trying to get Joomla to export to a database structure that would work. Especially when they were using Joomla extensions that WordPress didn’t exactly support the same in plugins.
The process took me just under a week to complete and the site you see now looks and acts almost identical to their original site. With some added functionality to allow them to have a vendors only section and couple other minor upgrades.
