I tried that with a programmer but it was impossible. Right now, it is impossible to migrate my Zoo articles to K2 (Joomla 3.2)

I test the module in localhost XAMPP

• Joomla version 3.2.3.
• XAMPP
• K2 version K2 v2.6.8
• the K2 Import / Export tool version latest: com_k2import_2.0_rc1

I use the Import for K2 module to transfer K2 items from one website to another. I have K2 Extrafield Groups and Extra fields in K2.

Problem 1
I tried to export more than 2.300 K2 items from one K2 category and always have the same error: /…/administrator/index.php?option=com_k2import&format=raw The export hangs and nothing happened.

Problem 2
In categories with fewer K2 items I managed to export the data (with Extra fields etc.). When I Import the data all of the K2 items and Category are correct but no Extrafields and ExtraField groups imported.

Are there any solutions on those problems?

Thank you
Alex

Hallo Alex,
exporting large sets can cause your server to run out of memory. Try to export category by category.
Before the export did you create the extra group in K2? and was the association correct during the import?

Thank you for your reply.

I must first to create the Extra Fields and associate them. That is clear I' ve done it and it worked.
The problem with the category remain. I have more than a 2.000 items in one category. The module has not the ability to split a category for export in parts.

Do you have any other proposal to export large categories.

Thank you

At the moment the only way to split exports is to export category by category. If you category is huge you have to increase the different limits im PHP or delete e.g. coments, they need a lot of ressources to be exported

Hi, I just have a question: I have a newspage made with K2 in joomla 2.5, which now contains over 300 items, but I have been forced to recreate the site with a joomla 3.2 and K2. Is it possible with your solution to transfer all the items from the J2.5 page to the new J3.2 site?

Yes that should be possible with some limitations:
1. some minor fields might not be transfered
2. images names are exported but you would need to transfer them to a place where you can access them from the new page and maybe modify the path in the export file
3. the structure of the categories is not exported. So the only way to import the complete structure is to create it first on the destnation system and have unique names for every single category. Then import with the option "recognize if the category already
exists regardless of the level"
