Over the last month or so, both of us have scratched our heads figuring out how to move our blog from Typepad to WordPress, and in the process redesign the site. After a lot of research, tinkering, and a huge helping hand from a company called Foliovision who helped us with the transfer, we’re now safe in our new, WordPress-hosted home. Biggest thanks to Alec, Martin, and everyone over at Foliovision.
Alec is one of the most creative people I have ever met.
He is an expert in on-line marketing. Alec’s unparalleled knowledge of the web has had a direct impact on my firm’s profitability.
Alec is also very trustworthy and reliable and he and his firm deliver topline results.
Foliovision is really a client oriented company. For everyday stuff, the communication works very well. If I’m really stuck on something you really help me right away. Your instructions are always easy to follow. Anytime I ask for a change or find a small problem, I just mention it and it is immediately fixed.
I am pleased to provide a testimonial relative to a recent experience with Foliovision for a database related project we had been working on. The challenges were very specific and unique, requiring a custom backend implementation of a number of modules in order to solve different issues for which there had not previously been an acceptable solution available for implementation or modification.
Alec and Peter were able to take our specifications and blend them with a responsive communication system, meeting the needs of our timeline. After participating in this friendly, positive experience, we plan on continuing cooperative efforts with Foliovision, which in turn, helps us to balance and enhance our own outstanding service offering.
Foliovision is definitely one of the top level companies in the internet technology environment today and is a pleasure to work with.

I was looking for help with transferring my site from Typepad to WordPress. During my search I found a Foliovision blog post about how to move from Typepad to WordPress and contacted them about some help moving my site.
The whole design process came along after that and it was absolutely wonderful. I worried a bit about moving my blog, CreativeEveryDay.com, as I write in it almost every day, but I love the new design and the transition was smooth. The new site is gorgeous! It was a really great change. Everyone I was in touch with, Alec, Martin, Jozef were great. It was a pleasure working with such a professional and creative company.
We wanted to move to a better platform. The motif behind hiring Foliovision was to make it easier and to take some load of my own schedule. First, we read your online tutorial but a DIY move was just way too time intensive so we went with you. With your help, we are safely on WordPress now and have managed to leave Typepad behind. People love the new look.
You did everything that we needed to be done and provided extra support whenwe needed it. That was great. I would especially like to mention Martin, he was amazing. Always fast and always responded to me within 24 hours or less.
Before signing up, I checked your website and there were lots of comments about the net and lots of positive things. There was no way I had time to move from Typepad to WordPress by myself.
Everybody liked the changes. Your work is very high quality and really fast. I didn’t have to wait a long time to get the project done. I was able to keep blogging during the move and never had any worries.
Even as a freelancer, your Typepad to WordPress service is definitely worth the investment. For people who have a business, it is a clear choice. I spent a lot of time debating whether I will pay for help with the move. Typepad doesn’t-make it easy to move everything over, and your service was flawless so it was a worthy choice!
I recommend you to colleagues regularly. I had a great experience. overall I am pleased with everything. This is very good when you are dealing with an online company and you guys should be really proud.
Network Solutions as acted with the cavalier disregard of the public utility it once was. Bad brand, bad!… We lost all the blog posts since December 18th,2009. This too is thanks to Network Solutions which managed to delete the entire database. Yes, that’s 1.5 million words, and many years of work madet o disappear in a puff of digital smoke. Bad brand, very bad brand.
Were it not for a backup at Foliovision, I would have lost the whole thing.Good brand! Excellent brand. (No, but really. Foliovision has earned my undying gratitude. Highly recommended for anyone thinking of making the transition from TypePad to WordPress.)
I owe a HUGE THANK YOU to the folks at Foliovision. Alec Kinnear and his team were unbelievably fabulous from the very start. They were always responsive, incredibly patient with all of my questions, and did a great job of soothing my fears as I pondered the switch to the new platform (Are my internal links all going to work? What’s going to happen to my Feedburner feed? Am I going to lose all of my RSS subscribers?). The process couldn’t have happened more smoothly and I couldn’t be more happy with their work. They even sent me a shirt as a thank you!
If you’re considering your own move from TypePad, I recommend Foliovision highly: they’re one of the few places that specializes in that service. If you just want a new web site or need search engine optimization (SEO) help, I’m sure they’re great for that too. I still can’t believe they did what they did for the price that they charged me.
Last summer I transitioned CafeHayek.com from Typepad to WordPress with the help of a great little company called Foliovision. Their service turns the otherwise difficult process of leaving SixApart’s Typepad into a relatively painless one. My clients, the folks at CafeHayek.com, thought the changeover was awesome and so did their readers.
The traffic on the web site CafeHayek.com went up, up, way up. The advantages of having a solid WordPress install are huge, which is why we chose service of Foliovision. What I like most about working with Folivision was the great state of the site once it was built. The blog was easier to used, had better SEO, and was significantly de-spammed by the end of the project. This created a much better blog and helped to bring in more and more traffic.
Right after Foliovision helped me move from Typepad to WordPress traffic at my weblog FreeTheAnimal.com began growing quite rapidly.
When I have tech issues with the blog or changes/enhancements I get immediate service. That was never the case with TP and the only thing ever resolved was when the blog was down hard or messed up in other ways. No suggested improvements ever got implemented. Now I can just have my own improvements done the way I want them when I want them.
I can say without hesitation that on balance, Alec & Martin V are among the best professionals I have ever worked with. I plan to keep them for as long as possible.
Does stuff happen? Of course. It would be unrealistic to expect it never would. Are they responsive when it does, at all hours, 24×7? In my experience, yes. Alec once left a New Year’s Eve party when links to my site from BoingBoing and Farq took it down and kept my site online through the storm of traffic.
Where Foliovision lacks a flashy website with cutesy balloons with price & package deals they make up for in actually delivering more than they promise.
We contacted Foliovision because you had very specific knowledge of the conversion process from Typepad to WordPress, and I didn’t want to do it myself. Our goal was to move our platform from Typepad to WordPress, getting that data moved without much hassle and the work done by Foliovision certainly contributed to doing that in a timely manner. It definitely saved time, as far as the time it would have required me to do it, therefore allowing us to get to WordPress sooner.
It also allowed us to release a new design that we have built based on WordPress and maintain the existing content.
I would absolutely use Foliovision’s services in the future for that need; it met the need we had for that project, it was reasonably priced and had a quick turnaround. I would recommend Foliovision to anybody looking to move from Typepad to WordPress.
I contacted Foliovision because the article you guys had about how to move a site from Typepad to WordPress was really well done. It was clear you know what you’re doing. The migration work went smoothly, the recommendation about hosting was good and the site design turned out fantastic. The visitors like it, the site looks much better and our traffic went way up after we made the change.
Foliovision took care of all the details, the web designer came up with a design that looks great and it all just got done with no hassle. I really like how you always kept me up to date. With your project management system, I could always clearly see where things stood.
Working with Foliovision is a really good experience: pricing is reasonable, everything always works and you get everything you ask for.
I was looking for a service to move my very own blog Andertoons from Typepad to WordPress when I found Foliovision. Every bit of work done by Alec, Martin and the others was fantastic. I couldn’t be satisfied more; the conversion process was very easy with them and also very professional. After I made the changes, my search engine results were far better and the traffic went up considerably. What I liked the most about Foliovision was their professionalism and that I didn’t have to worry; everything was done quickly and with great attention to detail.
Everything worked perfectly from day one and I am very satisfied with the results. I would definitely recommend Foliovision’s services to anyone looking for a quick, easy and cost-efficient way to move from Typepad toWordPress or for web design. My clients are happy, so the service was worth the investment. I continue to work with Foliovision for upgrade and maintenance.
I first found Foliovision while researching a Movable Type to WordPress conversion. I wanted to move my client’s site to a self-hosted WordPress platform without losing all their images, comments, and links. Foliovision offers a tutorial for the same service, but I felt it worth the investment to let them take care of everything. The whole project progressed seamlessly and my client and I were thrilled – so much so that I used Foliovision’s services again for a similar Blogger to WordPress content move.
After the successful content moves, I contacted Foliovision to discuss other projects. At the time I had not had a very good experience with other programmers. I was hoping against hope that Foliovision offered the same level of service with for custom programming and PSD to WordPress conversions as they did with their conversion services.
Having worked with them Foliovision on many projects, I can honestly say it is great to collaborate with them. I really enjoy working with the owner, Alec – he has a good mind for site architecture and maintains a very honest and straightforward approach that I appreciate. I have worked closely with Viktor and Martin as well and appreciate their skill set and attention to detail. The whole team is quick to let me know how to make my design vision work in code. Faced with difficult challenges, Foliovision come up with a choice of good alternative approaches instead of saying it’s not possible.
For me, Foliovision is everything I’m not. Teamed up with Foliovision I can do what I love best, design. Foliovision takes flawless care of the rest.
My web designer picked Foliovision for Blogspot conversion to WordPress, as well as the recipe design and optimization, for my site, <a href=”http://FineCooks.com”>FineCooks.com. I was very pleased with the professional services they provided. Their team significantly improved my website’s overall function and form, as well as immediately brought in additional traffic.
I owe a special „thank you“ to Foliovision for their WordPress recipe plugin that makes it a piece of cake to add google-friendly recipes to my blog. The plugin greatly reduces my workload and my readers genuinely appreciate the better print format.
The process was very easy and I loved the project management system, where I could clearly see all the communication and watch the progress of my project.Everyone at Foliovision was very nice and impressively responsive.
All work was done swiftly, professionally and changes that I suggested were done immediately.
I really can’t think of anything that I would suggest improvement-wise, the performance was flawless. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve their website. I will definitely use them again in the future.
Foliovision did a fantastic job moving my site beyondvc.com from Typepad to WordPress. The new graphics and layout were just what I wanted and most importantly they preserved all of my old links and my Google rankings. Foliovision were professional and worked quickly. My visitors love the updated site; it is cleaner, simpler and looks modern.
If you are looking to upgrade your site from Typepad to WordPress and modernize your design while preserving all of your links, there is no better place to go than Foliovision.
I was working on a blog redesign for a client. After researching how to transfer a TypePad blog to WordPress, I found that it was far more complicated than I imagined. After a quick Google search, I found Foliovision, who had perfected the Type-to-WordPress process. Using their service, I was able to sitback and focus on the design aspects of the blog while Foliovision transferred the content.
It was a huge time-saver! And I love that I could guarantee that the entire blog (and thousands of comments) were transferred. What I liked the most was the system in place to keep track of the project. Each member of the Foliovision team and I were in communication through the entire process. Also, because of this, it was super easy to pass along any pertinent information or ask questions along the way. If I am tasked with transferring a site from TypePad to WordPress in the future, I will definitely go back to Foliovision. The service they offer is unique and very accessible. I needed the transfer to happen in a timely manner, and it was done very quickly and efficiently.
It was the luckiest circumstance to stumble upon Foliovision! My first contact with Foliovision was when my original web designer recommended them and they started working on our shopping cart integration and a couple of custom WordPress plugins on our website. We eventuallyended up with Foliovision completing the whole website and launching it. Foliovision managed to build up and launch a new site which is much better integrated with our custom database and has design and navigation features that we are really happy with. Our site now looks fantastic, our customers find it very easy to navigate, and we, as the owners, are really happy with the WordPress content management system.
I’ve had the best time working with Foliovision, Alec is just fantastic, Zdenka is just incredible, I just could not have been happier with my experience! Alec did everything to stick to the original timetable and Foliovision completed the project within budget.
My initial experience with Foliovision was so fantastic that I have already recommended Foliovision to several of my friends. Finally, we have the website which we are proud of and which reflects our professionalism! I really can’t say enough good things about working with Foliovision.
I made my own research on real estate sites in my region and picked the top two real estate sites I could find on the web. Then I realized that they were both done by the same company. I was so impressed with these two sites Foliovision had done that I decided to contact them to work on the project of my new site ILoveToronto.com.
Foliovision have been doing a great job since. They are very cooperative, very hands-on and very quick to get back to me with answers. Foliovision would do everything that I don’t have time to. They do what I can’t do and I can focus on growing my business. Without them, I would lose great amounts of time, so they are helping me grow my business sort of “behind thescenes”. My visitors are responding really well and I’m getting more and more comments as my site grows. People like it, and the traffic has gone definitely up, too.
I recommend Foliovision because they affected my life , my website and my business in a very positive way.
I was frustrated with moving my blog <a href=”http://www.brandingblog.com/”>BrandingBlog.com from Typepad to WordPress, so I did a Google search and found Foliovision’s service. It would be very time-consuming and difficult if I was going to do it myself, but Foliovision moved my website to a platform I had more control over without me having to figure it out. What I liked the most about Foliovision was that they were very proactive in communicating in what exactly could I expect and they did a great job with their use of Basecamp, which kept the lines of communication open.
I recommend Foliovision and would use their services again if I had a similar problem. The service was definitely worth the investment.
I decided to contact Foliovision when a colleague recommended them after I had a security problem in the United States and I didn’t want a company from the US to help me with the transfer to WordPress. The Cooperation was definitely good and Foliovision did a great job with my site. My visitors like the changes and the traffic has definitely gone up. I recommend Foliovision, because I enjoyed working with them, the service was worth the money and of course I would use their service in the future.
We have been working with Foliovision for years now and we like Foliovision. They deliver smart service working on the internet. They understand the internet. The work done by them is excellent!
Our visitors like the changes made by Foliovision and the traffic has also gone up, so I would absolutely recommend Foliovision for their very good service. I will definitely use Foliovision’s services in the future as their service is worthy of that investment and the communication process is very good.
Foliovision was recommended to us by Toronto Realtor Julie Kinnear because we were looking for someone to revamp our website and build a new inventory management system, which would make our work easier. The old inventory system was horrible and didn’t help us at all. With Foliovision, we got a great new website and a new, very good custom inventory system.
The traffic on the website went up after the changes and we got a lot more business out of it. Foliovision actually got everything we wanted done, made our work easier and helped our business grow. I would certainly recommend them because the work they did was worth the investment.
After some research and knowing that Alec had helped a couple of other educational bloggers design their blogs, I decided to go with Foliovision to design my blog. The goal was to have a custom theme that would fit my needs and the needs of the viewers of my blog and work with specialists to make the site as good as it can be, fast and clean. Foliovision was the right choice, I had a very good experience with the company because they know what they are doing, especially in WordPress.
What I liked the most about my experience with Foliovision is how responsive and fast they have been, and the online system they use for communication. The work done was very good, I even started a second project with Foliovision based on the cooperation on the first one.
When I first started blogging back in ’05 I was a bit confused by WordPress, so I opted for TypePad. TypePad has been easy to use, but I’ve enviously watched WordPress evolve into a far superior platform. My anxiety level increased as its parent company, Six Apart, was sold to a new owner. The thought that some new owner of TypePad might one day shut it down was frightening. But so was the idea that in moving to WordPress, I might jeopardize my content and traffic. Fortunately I found Foliovision – and here’s three reasons why I can highly recommend their work:
1. Foliovision spent a great deal of time explaining the conversion process before I signed on. Since we started working on the project, they have patiently answered questions that a serious techie must find rather naive. Bottom line – while they wrote the book on TypePad to WordPress conversions – they can discuss it in layman’s terms.
2. They manage project workflow with style and efficiency. Through the conversion process I worked with four specialists via their Foliovision’s Basecamp collaboration tool. Replies were timely and each person seemed well aware of what the rest of the team was doing. Alec, Foliovision’s creative director, would periodically pop into the conversation with a great idea, like merging one of my other domains into my new blog.
3. It turned out to be an engaging collaborative effort. With Michala, the lead designer and project manager. We shared loads of design ideas and exchanged screen shots as the look and function of the new blog took shape.
When we needed help converting our legacy Typepad blogs over to WordPress, I contacted Alec at Foliovision. These conversions have a reputation for being difficult, but Foliovision was able to handle each one without issue. Even though there was a significant time difference between Europe and LA, Alec’s team made themselves available.
One of the compelling factors in selecting Foliovision versus other providers was, when I contacted some of the other providers, their response was not as professional, they acted more like maybe single individuals that were trying to do some business on the side or something, so, they said some of the right things, but they didn’t have a process in place, and I’m very process-oriented. Also looking through the references on the Foliovision site, I recognized a few websites that I have known and respect and follow like Andertoons.
I was very very pleasantly surprised a couple of times when I asked for some minor change and while we were online on skype, they just went in and made the change, and that was it. It was just that simple! You know, there was none of this: you know, we’ll have to go research this or look into it or we’ll get back to you or something like that.
Immediately after the site went live, I started to get positive feedbacks and compliments from my regular readers, so that was very encouraging, very positive. I’m very, very pleased with the way the website turned out.
I was looking to migrate from Typepad to WordPress, because I think WordPress has got much better support, much better plugins, and it’s better to work with. So I was looking for people who had experience in doing the migration when an internet search came up with Foliovision offering their service.
Everything worked pretty much as I hoped it would, Foliovision made the transition go fairly smoothly. You guys said what you would do, the work was on schedule, on budget, and you managed the project professionally using Basecamp. The price of figuring out the process myself would have been much higher, so it was a worthy investment.
I had a friend who recommended Foliovision to me, because I wanted to migrate my site elizabethesther.com from Typepad to WordPress. It would have been just too much work for me to do it on my own, so I went with Foliovision and the cooperation turned out to be great! Foliovision worked really fast and kept me regularly updated with the progress of the works. That was great, I just loved knowing how far along we were. I think it was great all around and that it’s a fantastic service that Foliovision offers.
I can handle my site, but I’m not a super tech-savvy person, so I really appreciated the service and I recommend it to everyone, most of all for people who can’t handle this kind of technical stuff. Foliovision did it for a good price, especially for how many pictures and articles I had on my site, so it was absolutely worth it. Moreover, I can’t think of any concerns associated with the delivery of the works or any improvements I could suggest.
I contacted Foliovision after researching real estate websites that you were working on and I liked the results I have been seeing. At first, I was quite concerned about the cost, which was pretty high; it’s a lot more that I ever spent on my online presence.
Having Foliovision taking care of my site, I found that it’s definitely worth it. I’m satisfied that I’m getting the value, and it’s getting even better over time with more activity. People like it and I like it, it saves me some time and gets things done in a good manner. The communication is good and I also like Basecamp, the project management system.
I think that Foliovision is innovative and helpful in explaining the way things work. I think that Alec is very knowledgeable and I value his opinion. I think the team is very good to work with; everyone has been very good to work with. Foliovision does the best to make every aspect of the experience as good as it can be while adding value and quality. Foliovision’s services improved my online presence and are helping my business. I can recommend Foliovision, and I already have, because everything I have asked you to do is happening. It’s a good service.
I had wanted to move my Typepad blog to WordPress for years but it was so beyond my technical skills. It seemed like an impossible task. I pretty much googled “Typepad to WordPress… help!” and luckily I found you guys. I was so excited to find out such a thing existed!
The result was a painless, simple transition from Typepad to WordPress. It was wonderful to find a company who could do this so quickly and easily. All the links worked, the images were moved and now the blog is a joy to update. The customer service was fantastic – everything was explained clearly. It was clear when things would happen, and what I needed to do.
As a personal blogger, the cost was a major investment for me. But given the age and size of my archives, moving from Typepad to WordPress was not something I could do myself, so it was definitely worth the money. I absolutely recommend Foliovision for their fantastic, fast and friendly service – what more could you ask for?
After I had moved to WordPress I needed to move Informed Comment to a hosting service that would be able to handle my bandwidth, which, on occasion, is quite large as I am a very prominent blogger. I mentioned it in my blog and Alec Kinnear, the CEO of Foliovision contacted me and asked if he could do something for me.
Foliovision set me up and the move was accomplished with minimum disruption. There were big demands on the server from my site occasionally and Foliovision staff put in a lot of hard work to make sure that there were no outages. They have done a nice re-design of the basic outlook of the site and that has been very positively commented on. People like it; it has a kind of nice, clean look to it. Of course, a lot of what Foliovision does is behind the scenes so my readers won´t know that they are getting this value added. One of the things that Foliovision has done for me is finding and installing plug-ins that are sure to work, and are safe. Nowadays, in order to run a successful blog, one really has to be more of a techie. I think bloggers need technical support of this sort.
Aside from those technical things, the most important is that Foliovision is helping me become a more effective blogger/journalist by advising me on fundraising. It has been a very satisfactory relationship so far. Working with Foliovision has been a very collegial experience; when I have asked for things to be done, they have been done efficiently. The more importantly, Foliovision has been proactive in coming to me with suggestions which have been excellent suggestions.
I would recommend Foliovision without a doubt, they really have helped the site to fulfill more of its potential and my relationship with them has worked out much to my advantage.
I was referred to Foliovision by a friend, the American journalist Philip Weiss, who is an iconoclastic reporter on Middle-eastern affairs. One day his website switched to a new design, better that it had been. I asked him who did it as I was looking to rethink both the Open City magazine website and Mr.Beller’s Neighborhood – A New York City Stories blog.
Foliovision brought a level of professionalism to the look and functionality of the sites that had exceeded anything that preceded it. Working with Foliovision has been a pleasure–they are totally professional, competent, imaginative, efficient and attentive. Foliovision seems like a 24/7 operation. Alec and Martin in particular are fantastic. I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend you highly to absolutely anybody. The service was more than worth thecost. Foliovision did everything I wanted and more. I’m a big fan.
I was looking for a way to move from Typepad to WordPress when I came across Foliovision’s blog. When I realized how much time and effort it would require to make the move on my own, I decided to move it with Foliovision. The transition was smooth and the result was fantastic! WordPress is a far better alternative to Typepad which saves me a lot of time that I can spend working with my clients. We had many positive comments on the site since we made the changes, the traffic is constantly growing and the SEO of the site has improved. The team at Foliovision was always there to answer my questions; they were very responsive and efficient. The service was definitely worth the money, so I have already recommended Foliovision and will continue to do so.
As I transitioned my blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, my web designer OMSH recommended Foliovision. I’m not a very technical person, so the fact that my web designer and Foliovision were familiar and comfortable with each other was very important for me. OMSH and Foliovision worked together seamlessly to upgrade my site; they made it run faster and created a more user-friendly environment for my readers. I am particularly impressed by their Basecamp system, which allows the entire team to stay on the same page when a site issue arises. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Foliovision; they’ve responded quickly to my concerns and their prices are reasonable. Most importantly, my site visitors love the new design!
I was petrified to make the move from Typepad to WordPress. I had over 1,000 blog posts and over 10,000 comments. Not to mention the back links. I couldn’t afford for anything to go wrong or get lost.
So I put it off for months. But when I heard about Foliovision and saw the size of some of the blogs they’d already converted, I was ready to take the risk.
It went very well and now, a year later, I am enjoying all of the advantages of WordPress and am so glad I took the leap of faith.
After inheriting a horribly organized Joomla sports club site and struggling to operate it for two months, I concluded that it was time to junk the whole site and start over. As I looked online for discussions of Joomla vs other choices, I came across Alec’s blog post, which was by far the clearest and most incisive. Looking through Foliovision’s large portfolio of page designs and testimonials convinced me that they would do a good job.
The project went extremely well. The new site is much more viewer-friendly on the front side and user-friendly on the back end. Even though we’re a club site with a roughly steady audience, traffic has definitely gone up, since the site is much more functional and attractive now.
In working with Foliovision, I particularly liked our communication. We had lots of interaction in the process of settling on the design and functions and in carrying through the tech work, the bulk of which was done by Zdenka. As for the design process, Alec and Michala worked from principles specifically appropriate for a club site, which is different from a commercial site or a blog. The level of service we received earned our confidence and loyalty.
I would definitely recommend Foliovision to anyone who values competence, professionalism, and honest opinions.
Reading Alec’s blog post about moving from Typepad to WordPress was my first encounter with Foliovision. Since I wanted true experts to work on my website, I decided to contact the company and the result was a welcome surprise.
What I appreciated most was a very professional, smooth service and the ability to deliver exactly what was discussed. Although I was initially concerned due to the size of the Typepad site we were transitioning, there were no complications during the process. My clients reacted positively to the changes and that makes me believe that the price I was charged was entirely worth it.

I remember being on a blogger forum where moving from Typepad to WordPress was discussed. Since I had spent many productive years blogging on a Typepad platform, I knew it would be too difficult for me to make the move by myself. And then I came across Foliovision. Since you are a Europe-based company I was a bit worried about the language barrier, but I haven’t found that to be the case at all. I saw the results of your cooperation with a number of food bloggers and their recommendations made me believe that Foliovision would be the right choice.
Everything Foliovision produced was top quality, everything was unique, very clean and beautiful. Overall, our mutual communication was very good and there was always someone available when I needed help or technical support. I was prepared to pay big money for the delivered service, but I found the price very reasonable! Since the redesign, my traffic has gone up and I have been given more opportunities to work with the paying clients. In fact, I went from a little part-time gig to really making a very good full-time salary so the price I paid was definitely worth every penny.
The whole process of converting my Typepad to WordPress was quick and accurate, the team team was very organized and I liked that they had everything set up as a checklist from beginning to end.
All the members of Foliovision I came into contact with took their time to introduce themselves, which I really appreciated and also having the training through Skype was a very good method.
Overall my experience with Foliovision was great!
I was searching for Typepad to WordPress move and Foliovision’s guide on how to do just that came up very highly in Google search results – so I thought, why not letting the guys who wrote the guide do it for me?
The whole process was easy to manage and I was pretty happy about that. I especially liked how they were organized through Basecamp, and the fact they had a chain of accountability made me pretty comfortable. It was a first time I was working with an international organization and thanks to the fact I’ve been introduced to the chain of accountability I could trust them and that made me really happy.
The whole investment was totally worth the money and these guys are top of the list if such situation comes up again. And if I hear from somebody wanting to do the same, I’ll be sure to recommend them.
After six months of successful blogging on Typepad, I knew it was time to start thinking about switching platforms. I’ve heard a lot of good things about WordPress so I simply typed “Typepad – WordPress” in Google Search and Foliovision was the first company that came up. I didn’t let the initial price scare me off because I wanted the move done with quality. Fortunately, stumbling upon Foliovision was the best thing that happened to me back then.
Our mutual communication was great. Whenever I had a question I just typed it in and Foliovision staff answered it almost immediately. They are not a bunch of people who went to school, took a course and think they can design a website. They are true professionals who know exactly what they are doing. I am glad to say that my blog now runs smoothly and loads fast. Moreover, my traffic has gone up substantially. Whenever I encounter a problem, I feel confident because I know there will be somebody willing and able to help me. I know I am in good hands and that allows me to focus on doing my blog stuff. Right now, I am very happy.

You asked if I had any suggestions and, frankly, I think this is the best plugin I have for media with WordPress in a decade. We’re right now migrating everything from 2005 that used WordTube to your plugin. It’s a large job, but I have never been as pleased with any plugin as I have with Foliovision. As we migrate everything, site to site, certainly I can see us likely getting more licenses.
My cooperation with Foliovision started when I decided to move my blog from Typepad to WordPress. That was a very complex task, but Foliovision staff impressed me with their knowledge and experience of how to make the whole process simple and easy-to-understand.
They delivered clean, perfectly executed design, which helped me make some new partnership. My budget went up, but so did my traffic. Foliovision did an amazing job in terms of SEO and I wholeheartedly recommend them to all my colleagues and associates.
I am really happy with the new design. It makes my head spin with how much I’ve learned! I know I would never want to do this by myself. Viktor’s training was phenomenal! The SEO help was very good. Google can now see my posts more easily. Alex and her team were phenomenal as well. Everybody was so polite and easy to work with. The team was always making sure that they understood my questions when I asked them, and always asked if I understood their explanations. The new site presents a much more professional image and is much more user-friendly for visitors. Thanks so much, Foliovision!
After eight years on the Typepad platform, we were exploring switching CMS platforms. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to switch without losing 8 years of links, images, content and Google rankings.
After some extensive research we stumbled upon Foliovision who had performed a similar switch for The Hollywood Reporter site. So we said to ourselves, “if it’s good enough for the Hollywood Reporter, then it’s good enough for us.” So we reached out to Alec at Foliovision and after some extensive back and forth where he answered all of out questions and made some very good recommendations, we chose Foliovision to perform our Typepad to WordPress conversion on over 2500 posts without losing any of the relevant links.
Everyone who has seen the newly launched site can’t say enough good things about the redesign.
It was a pleasure working virtually with the Foliovision team. Everyone that I worked with was pretty thorough and took all of my design and programming ideas into consideration.
Alec was simply fantastic. As the overall project manager he made sure that the project remained on track making sure that our vision for the site was executed just right.
Post move, we’ve decided retain Foliovision for additional design and custom programming.
Thank you for your great support. I was a JW player enterprise customer and left them because i was not satisfied with their technical support. Thank you for your patience and prompt response and great support for even the free version.
My video works so well now like never before!!! I am extremely happy! Random seeking took 4-6 second even before, but now it’s just lightening fast 1-2 seconds!!! And it works on all browsers. Really thank you guys! I plan to do a major upgrade of my site later this year and now I know who to hire for setting video player right,

Wonderful support. Your YouTube fix has done the trick. Thank you so much!
Thanks a lot Lucia for your complete answer. FV Player is the most perfect player in the world.
FV Player and especially its AB Loop are amazing, it’s so easy to use and there are so many options to customize it. AB Loop is a huge selling point on my website. It is especially great for playing this fast bluegrass style and that’s where slowing down the video helps a lot too. I use this myself. I taught me a lot, I actually learned a couple dozen of songs that I’ve taught in my lessons using this.

Absolutely love the product. I never imagined a newbie like me could run a complicated web media business without any technical knowledge!
Thanks for all your help. I’m converting my clients off of Viddler and jwPlayer by pushing videos out to Amazon S3 and Cloudfront with FV Player. All in all they are happy to be saving lots of $$$.
Thank you for supporting international users with a built-in subtitle feature. Before FV player I used two other solutions. Previous two players were such a hassle, where I had to upload content through ftp, or had very difficult way of creating the shortcodes. I like that your player seems to be simple, the efficient workflow, the design and clean code! Thanks for the friendly support, I don’t feel I am communicating with robots.

I love this product but have to say the support is even better. Thanks for being such an awesome company to work with.

I really appreciate you fixing my video setup for me in the time frame I needed. I was able to release our new product in time with my videos on cloudfront HTTP and RTMP. Thank you so much! I also like that you went over the technical details so I could understand your process.

I have over 100,000 subs on youtube and I post sometimes 8 videos a day – now, I am trying to reel in those subs to my website and migrate off of YouTube. Your plugin has revolutionized my website and I can’t thank you enough for making it affordable for everyone because it is really setting the stage for the next phase of our business!
One of the most important issues for us was the migration aspect when choosing a new video player. How easy or hard would it be?
We have thousands of articles which had JWPlayer shortcodes in them as well as JWPlayer playlists within WordPress. Therefore, manual migration was not going to be possible due to the volume and timescales to move player.
Our discussions with Foliovision comforted us that they would help do the migration via their technical services package. And they would ensure a smooth transition from JWPlayer to FV Player.
So, we agreed to use FV Player and requested a test migration first. Upon verifying the test environment, we were then happy for it to be conducted on our live server.
This was done with some challenges along the way, as you would expect, but we finally got a fully migrated project completed thanks to the excellent help from the Foliovision technical support and senior team.
When we were rebuilding the site initially, we were using JW Player. We couldn’t get it to work in WP with the features we wanted, so we were searching for other video players and we came across the FV player and we loaded it right away. It was easy to load and easy to install.
Then I also had some suggestions for new features you could add to FV Player. I contacted your support and within a day or two, Martin had added those features to the player. So that was actually what locked in the FV player for us. Foliovision’s team was as impressive to me as was the FV player.

AB looping is just something I’ve been trying to get to work for years really. But since I don’t have any experience with that kind of development, I contacted Alec and Martin and we tried to figure out the interface, and I think we came up with something that works pretty well and something that now a lot of people seem to be really into. It’s a big feature people want to use when they are learning to play an instrument.
Best plugin ever. Spent weeks looking for a great video player and yours is the best by FAR.
I choose FV Flowplayer for my site that uses LearnDash LMS to share training videos that are hosted on Vimeo. The team at FV provided excellent support in getting the player set up on the site and provided outstanding documentation to assist me. Couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.
