Yeah, it is on the same server as my old joomla 2.5.14 site.

Great! That means I don't have to ask you dozens of other questions about the server's technical specifications.

When you migrated your old J! 2.5 site to J! 3.2, how did you go about doing it? For example, did you start off with a brand-new J! 3.2 installation and then did you import the data tables from the old site to the new site? Or did you migrate in some other way?

Well what I did was I first installed a component called migratemeplus to my old joomla 2.5.14 site to migrate to the new joomla version. It's really simple, I just clicked on migrate to joomla 3.0 and it migrates everything to the new joomla 3.0.

Never heard of this before; sounds like you might want to discuss the issues with the developer of that product.

There may be more reliable methods, than by using third-party "quick fix"solutions, but they take a bit longer and you need to do a bit more work. Before tackling the issue of the unexplained K 3.0.4 installation on your site, let's establish first that your Joomla platform is on a sound footing. I don't think we've clearly established that, yet.

As you probably know, J! 2.5 is quite different from J! 3.2; many Joomla extensions (templates, modules, plugins and some components) designed for J! 2.5 simply will not work underJ! 3.x and that's a fact. But, if you're prepared to do the detailed planning work, and accept that some of your old J! 2.5 extensions will not migrate across, I'm prepared to give you my time to talk things over with you and see what possible options you may have.

But, to start off, you should contact the developers of Migrate Me PLUS and ask for references about the success rate they've had with J! 2.5.x to J! 3.2.x and K 3.0.4.
