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.

Waste of Money

Posted on 27 November 2017

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

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.


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


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.

Excellent solution!

Posted on 04 October 2017

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.

Ease of use

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

Value for money

There is no question this has saved me countless hours and provides an excellent solution. Definitely worth the money.

I used this to: Integrating WordPress into Joomla sites

Excellent Support

Posted on 30 September 2016

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.


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

Value for money

Good deal!


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

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.


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


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.

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.


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.

Ease of use

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


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.


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

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.


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

Ease of use

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,

--Steven Pignataro

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.

Most hacker attacks are preventable. Instantly protect your website from most attacks with jomDefender, a must-have first line of defense for every Joomla-powered website. Each day, Joomla websites all over the world come under attack from ruthless hackers who deface front pages, delete critical data, upload malicious viruses, and steal sensitive customer information. Sadly, most hacker attacks cost owners dozens of hours and often thousands of dollars to repair. jomDefender is a must-have plugin to help you avoid costly downtime and embarrassing hacker attacks. Casual hackers don’t want to work too hard to gain entry to a site or server. They simply scan websites, looking for known identifiers that tell them whether a site is running a software they're particularly skilled at breaking and entering. Unfortunately, Joomla is often targeted by hackers, due to its popularity, and also due to many site owners who do not properly protect themselves from intrusion. Running a site without jomDefender is like leaving your car running, with the doors wide open, in a crowded parking lot, in the bad part of town. Every single day. You're inviting trouble, and sooner or later, that trouble will find you, and take you for a ride you'll never forget. Once hackers can identify the software, they will run pre-fabbed hacker scripts to help them gain control of your site, and the rest is history. All your content, data and customer information could then be wide open for the hacker to take, and often sell to others too. jomDefender keeps your Joomla applications hidden and protected, to prevent attacks from casual hackers, by scrubbing known Joomla identifiers from your site. Additionally, jomDefender also protects your site with security features such as an extra admin login screen (makes hackers guess two unique admin passwords instead of one), front end & backend IP ban/blocking, and much more. We've even added a bonus feature in jomDefender that lets you find the best configuration for your website to optimize its page-load time. Featureas and Benefits of jomDefender: Remove template positions code, ‘?tp=1’ Remove generator tag Remove word Joomla! Remove HTML white space Remove Joomla! PHP header Add a new Admin password prompt Allow/Deny IP addresses to the back-end/front-end of your site Disable plugin functionality Caching mechanism Page execution time display File integrity checks Login/Logout CSRF prevention Get jomDefender today, and put an end to most hacker attacks on your Joomla website.
