Joomla manages content types. A blog is nothing more than a content type. At the same time, Joomla is great at component management. WordPress® is a software component that's really good at outputting blog content. It makes sense then, for Joomla to manage WordPress.

That's why, over five years ago, sensing a gap in Joomla's blogging solutions available, 'corePHP' first unveiled WordPress For Joomla, to deliver a superior professional blog content management powerhouse, arming our customers with one integrated killer app.

Other blog components you'll find are good, but they're all limited in their capacity to deliver what WordPress For Joomla delivers. Serious, professional bloggers' careers depend on their blog software, so they demand superior SEO, virtually limitless design options, and the ability to extend the power of their blog with a choice of thousands of plugins. WordPress For Joomla goes way beyond the capabilities of any other blog component built for Joomla.

Functionality

The functionality was ok. I looked like what I was used to in a stand alone version of Wordpress

10
Ease of use

Was not that easy before I installed it I had to FTP into my server and rename 1 file and comment out a line in the htaccess file.

10
Support

It was ok. In the end I got oh not our issue you need to talk to your template provider. This extension was the only place I had the issue

25
Documentation

The documentation was ok. Nothing great but ok.

Value for money

Was horrible I wasted my money. I am having to go with my second choice for my solution.

I used this to: I am not using. I could not get it to function correctly it had errors that went away on one update then came back. Also it would not load the default page color and was adding funky characters to the page. This page was the only one on my site having issues.
Owner's reply: Gene,

I encourage you to re-read my support responses. As explained to you, prior the issue you are experiencing is a bootstrap file that is displaying this is within your template and not from WordPress for Joomla!. The reason you don't experience this elsewhere is most likely on your site your site isn't using this class. As suggested it is best to modify this rule or create a new one that overrides this because bootstrap is getting loaded behind WordPress style sheets.

I am sad to see your response in regards to your scoring as I find it misleading to the type of support that we provide which goes beyond what we consider general support. Again I am sorry that my emails were not read or interpreted properly but we tried our best to communicate this issue to you.

This is really a great way to get the most out of both Joomla and WordPress. It's very flexible, and the support is very good.

It's very easy to work with. Plugins work, other WordPress specific aspects work as well.

Anytime I have had any questions or issues, support is quick and in most cases I can get answers or resolution through their support chat

Works Great. When having issues with the menu, the support team responded quickly & fixed the issue.

Ease of use

Pretty straightforward if you are familiar with Wordpress & Joomla.

Support

Excellent Support! Went above & beyond to fix the issue. 100% Recommended!

Value for money

Good deal!

100
Functionality

All the functionality of Wordpress. The fact that Wordpress is embedded in my Joomla site is invisible to the blog author.

100
Ease of use

I'm using the single user version. If you know how to use Wordpress, then you know how to use this component.

100
Support

Unbelievably fantastic. I wish I could show you my support thread. I've submitted 15 tickets over 3 years. All answered quickly.

100
Documentation

It's been so long since I installed it. Don't remember the docs. I remember there were no issues. It's just about knowing Wordpress.

100
Value for money

For 60 bucks a year you get Wordpress on your Joomla site. Nice. High value.

I used this to: I use this for a standard blog. The author of the blog knows Wordpress, so this component makes it easy. Also, I like Wordpress for the SEO, Social, and the other plugins that are available.
90
Functionality

All that I would expect. Easy access from Joomla to Wordpress and easy to link in the blog to the Joomla! site, with the users integrated.

100
Ease of use

Install as a component and off you go. Then its a matter of dealing with WordPress.

100
Support

Dealing with two CMS's will have it's difficulties. I have used this on 2 sites and the support has always been excellent and prompt.

90
Documentation

There is not too much to document, but what there is, is good.

100
Value for money

Excellent value for money. Especially when I consider the alternatives.

I used this to: Having the WordPress blog integrated into Joomla!. Why not use Joomla! for the blog? I asked the same question, but was told Google favours blogs in WordPress, so it helps SEO.

Functionality

multisite, the most important feature in wordpress, did not work. and major compatibility issues with other modules.

easy to setup, when it works...

Value for money

wordpress is free, the component if far too much expensive, I bought it with a discount.

I used this to: nothing, I bought easyblog since corephp does not answer my mails. No big deal.
Owner's reply: 'corePHP' has gone above and beyond to resolve this issue - to clear the air there was an issue with K2 that was causing issues with WordPress for Joomla! due to the nature of how WordPress for Joomla! works. We worked with the K2 team and they came up with a solution that was released in K2 2.7 and the customer has 2.9 installed.

For customers who have K2 and WordPress for Joomla! please make sure you have the latest version for compatibility issues. If you have any issues please feel free to reach out to us as we answer all support questions.

Kindest regards,

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!

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.
