Porting Metamod modules from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5

Porting Metamod modules from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5

Are there any instructions or tools available to help in porting Metamod modules and Metatemplate Pro rules from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5?

I have 50 modules and 20 rules.

Re: Porting Metamod modules from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5

Hi Robert,

Unfortunately, there's no automated way :-(

I think that the MetaMod rules will *probably* work if you have upgraded the site, then install the new version of MetaMod right over top of the old one.

The Chameleon rules however won't work - the database table has been renamed, and there may be other changes in the database schema, and even the names of some of the control parameters have been changed. I'm afraid you'll need to just go through those 20 rules and recreate them on the new installation.

I'm really sorry about that.

Best regards,
Stephen
