We have fixed the error with your account so you can access the downloads. I do apologize that we did not promptly get back to you in the 4 days you mentioned, though as I explained in the ticket (and can be seen by viewing the ticket in our support center) our ticketing system was having problems receiving email from your account as it has found its way into our email blacklist. This has been prevented in the future.
The only outstanding issue is that you wish to receive support on multiple sites with one subscription which we denied. Our terms of service states that we support one domain per subscription and we already fixed issues on a previous Wordpress for Joomla installation of yours.
If you require further assistance or have any questions, feel free to contact us again through our ticket system or forums.
So far after 2 months of using version 3 I'm still regularly reporting bugs and the support from the developers is friendly but quite slow.
Personally I would stick to version 2 until all the bugs / issues have been ironed out.
Use version 3 at your own peril...
Thank you for your concerns. We have been in the process of improving Wordpress for Joomla! 3.0 since its release and we welcome any reports of suspected bugs. It is our goal to make the highest quality software possible.
If you are still having issues or you have any unresolved questions, I would like to invite you back to create a ticket or perhaps start a thread in our forums.
I can understand your concern, but I would also appreciate if you do not misinform the rest of the users. If you currently own WordPress or WordPress MU for Joomla, you will be able to upgrade to the new subscription for a fee, it will not be full price, nor do we know the full price that the new subscription will be sold at, but it will not be $99 USD as the current subscription for WordPress MU for Joomla!

I hope this answers some of your concerns.
Often quite carefully
I am also quite cynical of reviews because often it feels as though they have been planted by the creator of the product
So when I bought corePHP Wordpress I carefully studies what had been written and on average the reviews all balanced out and I decided to go ahead
I was also buying the product for a Non-Profits website so money is tight and I needed to be sure
Well I am sorry to say I have ended up feeling very disappointed with this extension.
But it is important to explain why so other people don't make the same mistake.
I had already purchased a quite sophisticated Joomla template which I am basically very happy with.
But it was important to be able to add WordPress style capability to it
So I looked around and settled on Corephp because the product looked good and the support seemed to be there.
But it didn't work properly and now I know why
Essentially the developers themselves admit that they can't take into account all the Joomla Templates that are made.
So while the basic workings of this Wordpress extension are very good and I can see on a simple Joomla template it would work fine.
Trying to incorporate it into anything as substantial as the Rocket Theme template I am using is a recipe for disaster unless:
1) You are very skilled with Joomla Templates
2) You have a lot of time
3) Or and here is the catch - you are willing to pay the developers to do the work for you
Now, when I purchase something I like to know all the facts.
Its like going into a shop you want to know whether the thing you are going to buy is going to work
But this didn't for me and there are no refunds offerred and I am on such a tight deadline I can't afford the time to write to the developers.
So sorry guys, I am not trying to trash your product. As I said I am sure it works really well on simple Joomla Templates
But I think you need to warn people before they buy that they may well be wasting their money if they are using more complex templates
Because if you don't one is left with not such a good impression.
So work on it guys - it is really good what you are offerring but.....accept and admit its limitations
Hi, and thank you for your review, and I do apologize for the delay in reply.
You are right, we cannot account for all Joomla templates that are made as sometimes styles are not the same, this is why our extension ships with two different stylesheets, a default which contains most of WordPress styles except for font changes and most font sizes, and a minimalistic stylesheet in the case that the default one does not look right. There is also an extra option to remove all stylesheets for WordPress and this will allow you to style WordPress for Joomla to your liking.
I can understand that not everyone is a skilled Joomla template developer, but it might have just been one style line that was causing the issue between your template and our extension, which by submitting a support ticket we could have fixed it if it was indeed our fault and also fixed it for future customers.
I would also like to send you a link to this website which uses a RocketTheme template and our WordPress for Joomla extension:
If you want to migrate your entire existing Wordpress site over to your new blog, this extension isn't for you; corePHP cannot migrate image galleries.
If you don't know how to edit css, this extension isn't for you; the software requires heavy editing to look at all professional.
I'd consider just installing the Wordpress software and avoiding the $100 yearly fee charged by corePHP.
Thank you for the review. I do have to correct this review though:
1: Running a cron job is normal behavior for Wordpress. This is not a restriction upon our part but as in part of how Wordpress operates.
2: While it is true we can not migrate the image gallieries - the same goes for a single installation of Wordpress. This is not a limitation on the software enhancements we have created. Although it is possible to make the migration run smoothly - there is documentation on the net about doing these types of migrations from Wordpress to Wordpress and the same applies for the Joomla! version.
I thank you again for your review and just wanted to update the readers on what exactly is being said.
I got this up and running just the way I wanted it in one Saturday morning. The tutorials were very straightforward, and it has a lot of flexibility. I've also added several WordPress plugins with no problems. I do not know any PHP at all.
I highly recommend this extension to anyone who wants to add WordPress (a powerful blogging tool) to their Joomla website.
If you want to be able to use Wordpress within Joomla, this is the way to go. The time you will save by going this route alone, will be worth the money. It is exactly like having Wordpress on your site, except its fully integrated with Joomla and your current Joomla template.
Before I came across this on accident (didn't even think of looking for an extension like this), I was getting ready to take my current Joomla template and slicing it up into a Wordpress theme so I could implement Wordpress on a Joomla site. That would have taken me hours of work. Using this extension with the different components and modules took me under an hour (and I watched a 25 minute long video tutorial, which by the way was a lot of help).
If you are contemplating which full featured blog component to go with, look no further than corePHP's WordPress Integration!
I did experienced some early issues with the new blog in Internet Explorer but the support team helped me pick up the fact that some erroneous code was entered into the HTML ( I think pasted from Microsoft Word) of one of blog entries, which was causing the problem. As soon as I rectified that, everything worked seamlessly. I love this extension and it’s certainly worth the small investment. It will now be my blog extension of choice for all my future Joomla deployments.
There is also a support for wordpress-plugins, because these must be modified to be able to run under wordpress for Joomla. At the moment, 18 plugins are offered for download. Additionally, a video explains how to do the modification by yourself, and there is a wish list too, so that you can tell, which plugin you need most.
I use this extention as some kind of pinboard as part of a quite complex closed community website. Actually its a shame to use wordpress for such a small benefit. But the build-in blog of Joomla did not fit my needs and the corePHP wordpress integration offers the possibility to configure the whole thing according to my individual needs. I am still facing some problems which derive not from this wonderful extension but from my claim, to adapt my Joomla-configuration to wordpress. But I have no doubt to be able to solve them - perhaps with a little help of the forum of corePHP or the support.
To summarize: amazing idea, amazing extention, amazing support!
I submitted a support ticket and they've been working with me well to resolve the issues I faced - which were minor - and related to my server configuration.
Rafael and this CorePHP extension comes highly recommended.
I had a couple of issues that needed some support but Rafael was quick and courteous in helping me out. Would be good to see a sitemap plugin to help with search engines but I have faith that the team will continue to develop this.
Wordpress / Wordpress MU is probably the most complicated bridge ever created for joomla - i've used quite a few myself, and nothing matches the scale of this - the developer must be an inspired coder to have made this work.
This component let's you actually use wordpress or wordpress MU inside joomla - the full wordpress.... the worlds best blogging platfrom pretty much with all the features intact.
I do have to say that if I my knowledge were as it was 2/3 years ago, I would have fallen flat on my face and would probably be writing a complaining review instead.
I've got lots of experience with joomla and I've got basic css/html/wordpress - and to get the most out of this component - you need it.
The basic themes that work out of the box are very basic - there is a video showing you the methods involved in modifying a template, but again you need quite a lot of knowledge of php/html to translate what they're telling you for the template you've chosen.
I've spent probably 8 hours getting the wordpress template to match the joomla template, and it was a tough job - but it does look fantastic now.
The reasons for it being tough are as follows;
There's no way the developers can possibly help people modify templates for free, it's far too complicated, they probably can't even modify them and re-release them due to the 'permissions from the creators' issue.
I've got a joomla site with 3 wordpress blogs working and looking perfect - It's taken quite a lot of work getting it to look spot on (I am a bit of a perfectionist though) and I'm very happy with the result - I can't thank the developers enough - my favourite joomla component by a huge margin!
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.
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.
I had one issue (my fault) with sh404SEF and the URL's and corephp went above and beyond what was expected to assist me and get it working, they were responsive and unlike other companies i have bought components for actually seem to givea damn about there customers.
This is my first review for any component I have purchased but felt I had to tell others about it!
The component works flawlessly and the video tutorials on the site are very comprehensive. Users should remember that this is a combination of what i consider the most two most powerful web systems out there - so take the time to understand it - and it isn't that difficult and your will be very happy!
Highly recommended and you wont be disappointed.
The big problem with this is, why do we buy a product? For me it is to save time to get something done faster and more efficiently.
For me this ended up actually costing me more time to try and work out the bugs.
I ended up just using Joomla as my blog.
I don't feel this truly integrates wordpress into Joomla, because you can't post comments when viewing the Joomla end.
I also think a lot more documentation would be helpful. Right now the only instructions are a small PDF file, which is helpful for getting it installed, but not for actually using everything.
Buy if: You want Wordpress widgets to show in your Joomla Site and either don't care about the look too much, or have lots of time to put into tweaking it.
Don't Buy if: You want something that is publishable out of the box.
I am sorry that you are dis-satisfied. We are committed to providing our users the best support around - it sounds like there was no questions asked to our support team.
One statement that is false as a user feedback "because you can't post comments when viewing the Joomla end" Comments are in fact done through the backend.
Documentation and video documentation is available: Please see the current releases and please see our video docs: http://vimeo.com/user1502774/videos
We are actively growing in providing information to our end users - as a product that used by hundreds ever day - we have felt the pressure to get this done - only so much time in a day.
Thanks for your comments and I look forward to hopefully changing your decision - please feel free to submit a support ticket at http://support.corephp.com if you have any concerning questions.
