Introduction

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.


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.

Easy and Quick

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

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

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!


Shock

Okay it took me 15 minutes from the Joomla end to coordinate and figure out how to configure not the developer. Took me and I mean took 10 seconds literally to configure, point to where I wanted it to go and then 5 seconds to upload my site and look at the blog, nothing to it and I have no content yet but that's not going o be this developers issue. Please do read the fact this site is not for you unless you use WORDPRESS, it's a bridge not a whole blogging system, but what a great deal of work it has saved me. Wordpress let's me write a blog, format it and it goes, automatically back to my webpage blog site. YOWSA!!!!


The developer has done a great job. His support his lightining fast and kind, helping to solve issues in a very effective manner.

Be fair with developers like this one: read the product description and documentation and ask for support before giving a rating. He is doing this for free, and he is doing it very well.

The power of OTRS tickets via your Joomla website OTRS (http://otrs.org/) is a feature-packed open source ticketing system allowing things like time tracking, email handling and reporting. Rather than re-implement all of this, we've taken the powerful features of OTRS and integrated them with the CMS features of Joomla! The overall web site is managed by Joomla! while the help desk agents and end-users raising tickets interact with the web interface features of OTRS. With the OTRS Joomla Gateway, OTRS tickets are part of the Joomla web site template, and the user experience is seamless.
