I want to migrate my site from the "Emusica" joomla theme to the same theme "Emusica" Wordpress version.
I wanted to know if you can advise me how best to do it.
Thank you very much you in advance.

A quick search on Google for "Joomla to WP Migration" gave me this result: https://www.wpmultiverse.com/blog/joomla-to-wordpress-migration/

That should help with the page content.  As far as migrating module content into widgets, unfortunately the only way to do it is one at a time.  The method that I have used when recreating the demo content for WP is to have two browser windows open on separate monitors; one with the Joomla modules admin, and one on the WP widget page.  I use middle-click to open each module in a new tab, copy and paste what I can into a new widget, redoing anything that can't be copied.  It takes time, but once you've done a few, it starts going faster.

Thanks for your reply.
I think there might be something wrong with the theme. It may not be compatible with the latest version of wordpress. I really do not know.
I have experience with Wordpress.
In principle the demo does not work, therefore the structure is empty. Should this be so?
I followed the instructions for the installation, exactly.
I Use both versions.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If content is missing, it's most likely that the file that installs the demo content got corrupted when you uploaded it.  The easiest way to fix it is to delete the "Sample Data Injector" plugin, then re-install it by extracting the "/wp-content/plugins/shaper_{theme_name}.php" file from the shaper, putting it into a .zip file, and using the WP plugin installer to re-install it from that new file.  Once the plugin is re-installed, activate it once to reset the site to a default shaper install; when you activate it, you'll need to make sure you wait for the page to completely finish loading before you navigate away so you don't interrupt the database dump, which would prevent the sample data from being added and cause the same problem again.

For future reference: When uploading the shaper for a new site, make sure you have your FTP client set to use "Binary Mode" for transfers; any other option can cause file corruption for PHP files, which is usually what prevents the sample data from being installed correctly.

Thank you very much Tristan for your reply,

I follow your instructions step by step.

Change.

With  Enable Demo Mode  YES or NO I see the same (Image 0.png) It does not change


I see that: (Image 1.png)

In the other item I too see this in Media Gallery. (Image 2.png) something is wrong

I expected to see this (Image 3.png) but not. To only have to change the content in the different widgets. I think this is the correct way the theme should work (in demo mode), as shown on the sales page.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The "Demo Mode" option doesn't have anything to do with the content; it is used to enable using URL arguments to show viewers what different settings would look like.
Example (Used to change the site highlight color):
    http://shape5.com/demo/wp/emusica/?highlightcolor=ff0032
    http://shape5.com/demo/wp/emusica/?highlightcolor=2abba2
    http://shape5.com/demo/wp/emusica/?highlightcolor=reset


The instructions given in my previous post will fix your problem with missing content if followed correctly.  The only difference is that the images used on the demo are licensed only for use on the demos and are not included in the shaper; all images in the shaper are replaced with the "sample" image placeholder.

Any broken images in the media library are most likely left over entries in the database from previous demo data; you can delete them without concern.
