Migrating from Joomla to Croogo

During past year, I have started using CakePHP as my web development tool of choice.  Thus, it's time to convert my old site into a cakephp based CMS.  I have chosen Croogo for this purpose due to its simplicity and ease of use.

My previous CMS was Joomla, and was built eons ago.  Although the site was pretty much empty, I'd like to have those posts migrated.  Thus, as an exercise I wrote a cakephp/croogo plugin to assist the migration process.  This site is the first live test of the conversion.

Currently, the plugin can migrate sections and categories, posts, and users.  You will need to manually reset your user accounts after conversion process has been completed.
