The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

Hi Paul,

The WordBridge extension is a very nice piece of code and it does some of its job very well, thank you for its development!

What does not work for me at present, however, is providing users with the ability to post comments and share the articles using the sharing options activated in Wordpress.

This essentially makes the extension half-usable as only a static snapshot of the Wordpress blog is displayed within Joomla. I'm therefore publishing a link to the original Wordpress site for my site visitors encouraging them to comment or share, which is not straightforward.

If there is anything I could do to fix this it would be fantastic! Thank you!

Hi Jan,

Agree that the passing of comments and other links is essential rather than a nice-to-have, and it should already be present and working. Unfortunately the WP API is sparse and doesn't provide a lot. It's tracked as a bug/issue on (#2) and there's been some progress (#11) on fixing it.

If you want to help, you'll need to be(come) familiar with the WordPress API - the project page on GitHub is the place to get involved. Even if we do fix this issue first it would still be great to get more people involved.
