Reviews migration from Virtuemart 1 to Virtuemart 2 - solution
« on: November 05, 2012, 21:49:47 pm »
Hello there!

After publishing Products additional images migration from Virtuemart 1 to Virtuemart 2, I would like to upload another migration plugin.
I'm talking now about reviews.
Use this plugin after VM 1 => VM 2 migration process, when your old VM 1 tables still exists into target, new database.
THIS PLUGIN WORKS FINE ONLY WITH MIGRATED JOOMLA USERS FROM YOUR OLD VIRTUEMART 1 SITE!

Download:

Use this url: http://joomstuff.com/free/plg_vm1_reviews_migrator.php

Installation:

Installation is simple - use your Joomla installer, after that - publish the plugin.

Migration process:

1. Old Virtuemart 1 tables musts exists in your actual database! (especially #__vm_product_reviews table), with the same prefix, as your Virtuemart 2 database prefix.
2. Put this url into you browser address bar: www.your_vm2_site.com/administrator/index.php?convertVm1Reviews  (don't forget /administrator/ !)
3. You will get this form:



4. Put "Start process" to begin reviews migration.
5. You will get this message on complete:




If you will get any error message - probably migrated review had some special characters in comment. That review comment will be non complete (spited to some word, which has that special character). You should copy-past manually that review from VM1 to VM2.


Regards, sorry for my poor English & have fun!  ;)

Hello do you have an updated version of this and a way to migrate product reviews & ratings from VM1.5 to VM3?
I used a migrator plugin but for some reason it only migrated about half the reviews and also I had to manually adjust the product IDs to match
I also tried csvi but I don't see a field to export for reviews on the old joomla.
I have about 700 and been doing a few manually with phpmyadmin but it takes forever
Thank you
