Introduction

Blog integration

WordBridge allows you to use WordPress.com to write and manage your blogs, then publish them automatically to a Joomla website using this easy-to-configure component. You get all the best features of WordPress.com for blogging, and all the best features of Joomla for web content management.

  • Get this

You don't have to use an unfamiliar blog editing tool or a tool in Joomla that resembles WordPress. There's no need for a one-off migration, export or conversion from WordPress. Simply configure WordBridge with your wordpress.com blog address and then all your WordPress edits and posts appear directly on your Joomla site. No need to worry about formatting; posts appear using your Joomla templates and stylesheets. Easy!

If desired, you can even merge different WordPress.com blogs into one site.

Once WordBridge is managing the blogs on your Joomla site it can make direct calls to WordPress.com tools to display by category or tag. You can search the blog contents. It supports all the links that your WordPress.com blog provides, such as add comment, like on Facebook, send a Tweet and so on. It uses SEO-friendly URL links too.


Blog post not showing


Posted on 03 September 2015
Functionality

On clicking on the link of the particular post, sometimes the content and the title is not showing. This happens on few pages only

Ease of use

Is there any option to show few content on list of blog page and there will be Read mor button or link?


Perfect!

Functionality

Smooth, intuitive, seamless. I'm importing 8 WP blogs, and they all look great on the Joomla site! Takes on my site's CSS perfectly.

Ease of use

Easy to upgrade in J3.4 with the files provided on GitHub. Just upgrade from directory. Everything is in place and ready to go.

Support

Lewis is quick, responsive, and congenial. He recreated my issue (upgrade to J3.4) and gave clear instructions that made a super easy fix.

Documentation

All on GitHub, very easy to follow.

I used this to: importing 8 WordPress blogs into Joomla 3.4 main site. I've been happily using the original version of the component for years. Didn't work on the upgrade, but it was simple to FTP them to a tmp file and upgrade (v. 3.1 is on GitHub). Thanks, it's truly a gem!

This extension saved my time required for integrating wordpress blog into Joomla. Really liked it a lot.

Just one request for developer -

1. Need blog post module for this component.

2. The menu type cannot be Category view. Just blog post entries while we have 3 views in component.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind comments. We have item 1 on our issues list (https://github.com/cognidox/WordBridge/issues/4) but it hasn't made it to the top of the list. Will review again. For item 2, if I interpret this correctly then what you want is a list of the blog titles which link to the actual blog entries. If this is the case, you could achieve this if you override the 'entries' view template in your own theme, either as a full template override or as an alternative layout specifically for one menu entry.

A very easy and quick integration for joomla and wordpess really saves my time, and got the site ready fast.


Easy to install - added css and almost there. Huge thank you to Paul who was so quick and helpful at giving me a solution to adapt the width. Well done - what a super and simple FREE extension.


good work

Simply installation and configuration. Works fine at first try.


Simple and quick

This extension takes only seconds to install. All you have to do ito get up and running is create a new menu item, supply the name of your wp.com blog and save. It starts pulling posts off wordpress.com and into joomla with no problem.



The only quibble is that the header for each post is active and looks like it should allow you to click through to the blogpost, but that isn't working for me yet. Clicking the header just takes you to a blank page on your joomla site (or at least it does on mine). But if you click on 'add comment' for a individual blogpost then it takes you through to the post on WP.com. I haven't yet got to the bottom of what's going on there.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the positive review.

Your 'quibble' doesn't sound right - you should be able to use links in the post to the Blog. We'll help if you raise an issue at the project page - https://github.com/cognidox/WordBridge/issues. Let us know in the ticket what version of Joomla you're using , what OS your site is hosted on and your wordpress.com site URL.

Excellent Component


Posted on 04 September 2012

Quick and easy to install and configure. Works perfectly. Up and running in minutes!


Just installed this and it worked immediately. I had to make a couple of minor tweaks to settings but these are outlined on the developer's wiki. I also had questions that were responded to by the developer within minutes! If you are using Wordpress.com to host your blog and Joomla to manage your site content then this is a fantastic component to use.


I am always a little skeptical about reviews of how great an extension is. This one lives up to reviews and then some. Installed and configured in minutes. The integration of WP blog entries with existing Joomla! template exceeded my wildest expectations for such a simple product. I guess I really like it!
