WordPress Blog for Joomla!
Overall, the component does what it is supposed to do and it does it fairly well. However, there are a couple of issues that I have found.

The first has to do with the breadcrumb links pushing the title to the right on posts.

The second has to do with the widgets on the sidebar butting right up against each other.

I tried to fix this in the style sheets without success. When I contacted the developer, I was told that I could hire him for $75 per hour to fix it.

Frankly, I was a bit put off by this as I am paying $80 per year to use this program, I am using his default template, and I am being asked to pay to fix an issue with his code.

Having said that, the video tutorials are very helpful and the installation and set up are very quick and easy.

Dr. Todd,

Thanks for your comments. While every attempt is made to making the default template work with various templates - we also do recognize that it is impossible to accomplish this as various templates on the market could be overriding what is being used in the default template.

This is why we offer professional services to assist in cases like this. In most cases it is not just a few minutes here and there to fix things - but we have to do research into how your template is structured and adjust the CSS to best fit your templates needs. I'd like to also mention - it is not an issue with the code - but many times an issue with the Joomla! template being used. We see it all the time.

If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact us and we are more then willing to assist you.

Happy Blogging!
