It works really fine


Posted on 14 September 2014

It took my time to make it work because of the database credentials. The key is getting this info from wp-config.php file, it was quickly installed and once I realized the right place to get the credentials, it worked perfectly in any position I placed it.


I installed the module, all perfect functionality, recommend


nice module to hook in wordpress post or woocommerce products in to joomla.


Nice extension. It would be awesome if it could show the author´s name too... :(


Great!


Posted on 30 August 2012

Working in seconds. Took me a full two minutes to get it perfect because I decided I wanted to adjust the heading (and there's an option for that). Thank you!


For my purpose, it resides on a side bar with two of the latest articles. It works without any issues. The pictures automatically are resized with a lot of great little features like the heading size or Read More On/Off. I'm comparing this to my experience with EasyBlogs' module which is similar but has several key benefits that this lacks such as social integration. If the developer added social integration and a Read More Button - I believe this would be really amazing.


Easy install, easy to configure and get working. Simply insert DB information and publish it and your set. Configure it to your specific needs to tweak it even more (post order and such).



Allowed HTML Tags setting allows you to add , , html element tags that you may have in your posts to allow them to not be stripped by the PHP code.



Limitation I notice with it - The site I am building is designed to have a seamless interaction and transition between Joomla site and WP Blog - this plugin has no config setting to control how the "Read More:" links function - _parent or _blank for example for the target.


I would have given this module a Excellent rating but i could not get it to keep the formatting of the original WP post. Even though I told it to all tags, they seemed to be stripped away. Other than that, it works as you would expect.



Waiting for an answer on how to resolve this from the developer.


Great Extension
