K2 Items to Joomla Articles
Posted on 2013-05-28
I'm building a client a new website. The old site used K2 for certain content. On the new instance, I'm making a clean break from K2, but I have about 300 k2_items records I'd like to migrate back to Joomla articles. I read an article that showed the following syntax to do what I'm after, but I keep getting syntax errors around the fulltext, both with and without single quotes. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this query?
insert into srp_final.jos_content (title, alias, introtext, fulltext, state, sectionid, catid, created_by, metakey, metadesc, ordering) select title, alias, introtext, fulltext, 'published', '17', catid, '841', metakey, metadesc, ordering from selene2_srporg.jos_k2_items
Please note these are two separate databases, but they're on the same machine and MySQL instance. Any suggestions? Or does anyone know a clean way to accomplish this?
