    We have created a migration tool that will allow you to migrate virtually any file-based content: https://github.com/hannonhill/Universal-Migration-Tool into Cascade.

    If Joomla has a filed-based export that could work. Otherwise, you may need use a tool like httrack to first export your site to a file-based format.

    I'll let others who have used the tools chime in with their effectiveness.

    The Universal-Migration-Tool,

    Will it create a template?, or will it just copy paste every file into cascade? how will it handle blocks? links?

    Im very curious as to what it does, and what it doesnt do.

    To summarize a bit, the Universal Migration Tool (UMT) will allow you to map your exported site content (what Bradley mentioned previously) with a Content Type within a Site you have set up in Cascade. More specifically, it allows you to map specific elements within your exported site content to Metadata or Data Definition fields using XPath expressions.

    For a quick demonstration of the UMT, here is a session I held at a previous User Conference that gives an overview of the tool and the migration process. I can also put you in touch with our Services team if you would like more in-depth help with the UMT. They have helped a number of clients migrate content into Cascade using the UMT.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
