Migrating the articles:
  1. Change database name my_joomla_db to your joomla database and my_wordpress_db to your Wordpress database
  2. Change http://demo.joellipman.com/wordpress/ to the full URL of your WordPress site.
  3. If post_type is to be post then append with ?p= otherwise use ?page_id=.
