Blog integration

WordPress For Joomla empowers professional site owners to deploy the world's leading blog software, powered by the best CMS on the planet. It's truly an unbeatable combination of content technology.

  • Get this

Here's why it works:

Joomla!® is excellent at managing content types. A blog is nothing more than a content type. Simultaneously, in addition to managing content, Joomla is equally adept at managing software components. WordPress® is a software component that, more than any other function, excels at producing blog content. It makes sense then, for WordPress to be the perfect compliment to Joomla! Content/Component Management System, meet Content producing Component.

That's why, over five years ago, sensing a gap in Joomla's blogging solutions available, 'corePHP' set a goal of deploying WordPress powered by Joomla, to deliver a superior professional blog content management powerhouse, thus creating perfect harmony and synergy between Joomla and WordPress; and more importantly, empowering our customers to deploy them as one integrated "killer app." We call it WordPress For Joomla!

Other blog software components you'll find on the Joomla Extension Directory ("JED") are OK, but limited in their capacity to deliver what expert level bloggers truly demand from their blogs. Serious, professional bloggers' careers depend on their blog software, so they demand superior SEO, built-in commenting and advanced content marketing technology. They demand (and get) virtually limitless design options, they can choose from over 20,000 plugins to extend the power of their blogs way beyond the capabilities of any other blog component built for Joomla.

Add to that a huge support network of fellow bloggers to learn from, and how could any Joomla add-on deliver all that? No way. That's why chose to integrate the #1 blog software on the planet into Joomla, and deliver WordPress For Joomla (WP4J) for you. Engineered right, WordPress For Joomla makes sense for any blogger to embrace and take full advantage of its superpowers.

Compare other Joomla! Blog components to WP4J and ask yourself, which would you want?

  • SEO and Google Rank are afterthoughts **OR ** SEO is top priority with WP4J!
  • A few limited blog templates **OR ** 10,000+ modern themes for WP4J!
  • No extensibility with few modules **OR ** Access to 20,000+ WordPress plugins.
  • Commenting as a separate paid component **OR ** Comments are built-in.
  • Spam that routinely kills your blog **OR ** Anti-spam is a top priority.
  • 2 or 3 developers fixing bugs **OR ** 2,000-3,000 focused on building a better blog!

Those are just a few comparison bullet points. The results are so one-sided, it almost seems unfair to compare WordPress to EasyBlog and the rest, but that's why we created WP4J, like every piece of software we develop: to give YOU an unfair advantage over the rest!

WP4J! is a true testament to Joomla's superiority as not only a Content Management System, but as a Component Management System. Don't be afraid to incorporate WordPress into your Joomla site, and get the best of both worlds, with all the CMS powers of Joomla, seamlessly integrating Joomla Users into WordPress, to extend the power of your blog. WordPress for Joomla lets you incorporate Content Marketing right, right from the start.

Get the best blog extension on the market for the best CMS on the market, and feel the synergy for yourself!

Excellent Support

Posted on 07 August 2014

I had some real issues after migrating 3000+ posts from a J 1.5 site to a 3.2 site. The folks at CorePHP were extremely helpful. This is a great component and allows you to integrate a complete, working WP installation within your Joomla site. It works well and if there is a problem, support helps you fix it quickly. Highly recommended.

Stand up group!

Posted on 13 June 2014

I've been using this extension for some time, and it worked quite well. Any problems I had, they were very helpful in resolving it.

I no longer use this extension; however, I was recently billed for a renewal of the subscription. I contacted CorePHP asking for clarification as to what the billing was for. They immediately noticed it was an error, and offered me a refund.

Stand up group there!

Be very careful buying this plugin. It requires some work to get installed and running, and even then will still leave you with some challenges.

I could not get the plugin to install correctly, and neither could the CorePHP developers. I was able to finally get it working, but only by hacking through various URL's and finally getting into the WP admin console. Now I find myself having to make change some settings directly in the database, like the Author of posts, because it appears that function has been removed from this version of WP. Also having issues with the links on the blog pages not being correctly formed URL's. At this point I'm writing this purchase off as a loss and just going back to using standard Joomla articles for the blog.

The plus side of the plugin is the ability to pickup the site look and feel for your blogs. That part is working great.

I wanted to move my old wordpress site to joomla, but didn't want to have to migrate (and change the address for) over 400 blog posts going back to 2005. This component worked perfectly and the urls match my old site exactly. I ran into a few technical glitches, but none of them were bugs, they were just config issues. It does take some wordpress knowhow and css skill if you want to customize the wp theme a bit, but I'm used to doing that with many components and themes anyway.

Perfect Support

Posted on 08 December 2012

I had some problems with the proper configuration of the module "Word Press Latest Posts". I got immediate support for my technical showing images and additionally, I got support for the proper format configuration in my CSS-File. Really great support, everything works now.

My personal experience with wordpress for joomla has been terrible. It broke my othe rcomponents like JFBConnect for automated Facebook login, Kunena returned Fatal 500 errors and JomSocial integration did not work.

All resulted due to wordpress for joomla plugins and PHP code conflicting with other extensions.

I usually do not write bad reviews but I was really frustrated when I logged in as a member to the site and tried to submit a ticket I got an error on their website too. Which means I have paid them 100 dollars for a crap extension that I do not use on my website neither do I have any support from their team.

I highly recommend users to stay away and not purchase this product as I wasted a lot of time and money trying to get this to work and the shocking support ever.

Even free extension provided by joomla have better support then corephp.

My personal advice is to not give these guys a single cent as they do not deserve it.

Owner's reply: Sandy,

I'd like apologize for the trouble you've had with our component and with our support center. We have been receiving tickets regularly so you should still be able to submit one. If you'd like to give us a call at (269) 979-5582, we can get your issue resolved. Also, you can email support [at] corephp [dot] com.

Kindest regards,
'corePHP' Support

Good Support

Posted on 07 August 2012

I use Joomla 1.7 (haven't updated to 2.5 yet) and this extension. I also use a template that isn't fully compatible with this extension. Even though they state that they do not help with issues caused by 3rd party plugins. They helped with resolving my issue.

Great Support

Posted on 06 June 2012

Installed vers.3.3.1 today - all went smoothly, and documentation was very helpful. I did have a hiccup with the .htaccess file and the support team were very fast to respond and fix my error. In about 1 hour - fantastic.

Looking forward to continuing with the WP Blog... thanks

Wordpress for Joomla solved so many of our problems trying to get a good news feed for people in our organization that were familiar with Wordpress. It is definitely the way to go for people in your organization who are foolish enough to believe that Wordpress is a better overall CMS than Joomla. This plug-in integrates them together perfectly.

The support is excellent as well as ever time I have had a question (no problems) they have been there within 24 hours to answer and help me get all I can out of this incredible component!!

WP4J is an awesome extension. Read/Follow install instructions and in no time, you're rollin. Written and video documentation is excellent, and their support department is quick to handle any issues that might arise. ... If there was a 6 start rating, they would get it from me.

Protect your Joomla website from devastating hacker attacks with jomDefender: ‘corePHP’s’ powerful new security plugin that shields your website from hackers. Each day, Joomla websites all over the world come under attack from ruthless hackers who deface front pages, delete critical data, upload malicious viruses, and steal sensitive customer information. Sadly, most hacker attacks cost owners dozens of hours and hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars to repair--if the damage can even be repaired at all. Don’t let this happen to you! Our jomDefender plugin patches the most common vulnerabilities found in Joomla and adds extra protective layers to your Joomla website to keep it safe from attack. It’s easy to install, easy to configure and even easier on your budget. Get peace of mind now and grab your copy of jomDefender today for a fraction of the cost of what you would pay a security consultant to assist you. Don’t wait until it’s too late. jomDefender Features: The truth about Joomla security You want to know the cold, hard truth about Joomla security? The fact is, most Joomla hackers are just casual hackers. They really don’t want to work too hard to gain entry to your server, and honestly, most hackers don’t have to do much. They simply scan your website looking for known identifiers that tell them your site is running Joomla. And once they know this, they will run pre-fabbed hacker scripts to help them gain entry. jomDefender keeps your Joomla applications secret and prevents attacks by letting you remove all known Joomla identifiers from your site via a few, simple backend parameters edits. jomDefender also protects your site with additional security features such as an extra admin login screen (makes hackers guess two unique admin passwords instead of one), front end & backend IP ban/blocking, and so much more. We've even added a bonus feature in jomDefender that lets you find the best configuration for your website to optimize its page-load time. Customizable jomDefender parameters at a glance: Remove template positions code, ‘?tp=1’ Remove generator tag Remove word Joomla! Remove HTML white space Remove Joomla!
