Gain access to many WordPress Plugins!
Seamless design integration - no need to perform costly modifications to your Joomla! Template.
Multisite Capable - users can have their very own blog with you in full control as Network Administrator.
WP4J is compatible with both Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 and your server should conform to their respective Technical Requirements
The WP4J Component Zip file is quite large and may fail to upload due to server constraints. If this occurs no problem! You can perform a Discover Install. WP4J's install file structure is identical to Joomla's so you can upload it directly to your server via FTP.
WP4J must be accessed via a Menu Item to work properly. It is just a simple matter of setting a Menu Item to point at WP4J via Joomla's Menu Management Area.
WP4J automatically provides Joomla users with Wordpress access as per the role to group conversion in the WP4J options configuration. For example you may have the Joomla Registered group associated with the Wordpress Subscribers Role, if this is the case all your Joomla registered users will automatically become subscribers to your Wordpress Blogs - the same goes for other groups and roles.
You can allocate users their own blog with full featured admin and user capabilites. Set up your own blogging network!
Create a multisites user group in Joomla, activate multisites in the WP4J Options and users belonging to this group will have a wordpress blog automatically set up with full admin capabilities. Amazing!
Multisite Users can even invite others to subscribe via email, if the invitation is accepted they will automatically be registered to your Joomla site as well.
Multisite Users also have full control over widget inclusion and placement via the WP4J Multi Module System.
One of the best features of Wordpress is the Admin Bar which offers a convenient way to
manage and update your blog. WP4J implements the Wordpress Admin Bar as a Joomla Module,
so it will appear
appear on whichever pages you like.
The Admin Bar is also available to Multisite users as well and we are sure your users will be astounded by the great new features your website will be offering!
Wordpress modules are called widgets and there are literally thousands of them available. Guess what? WP4J lets you
display them anywhere on your Joomla Site as a Joomla Module. We also give you the ability to show the complete Wordpress
Side bar as well.
The Sidebar or Module can display the content of a specific blog, or automatically detect the blog loaded and show the correct content - this feature is handy for showing Multisite blogs.
Pssssst, Wordpress Plugins work as well :)
WP4J Utlises the same layouts as the Joomla Com_Content Component and due to the fact that Most Templates
Support this, in fact really ALL templates support this, well that means WP4J will conform to your site's design
scheme without needing css modifications.
This can save you literally hundreds of dollars (or big headaches if you need to do it yourself). Of course there is a style sheet available to tweak the design if you should need, fully template overridable btw :)
For all content and module display the Wordpress API runs seperately to Joomla's API resulting in less strain on your server as well as solving conflict issues before they occur. Wordpress and Joomla were not designed to run togther in the same process so it is only fitting that they both run seperately.
We have not modified the Wordpress (or Joomla) Core routines in anyway to create WP4J. This means that the enduser is not at our mercy to provide security updates and such for Wordpress, it can be updated directly via the Wordpress Admin area without requiring our intervention.
We have gone to great lengths to ensure that WP4J integrates the user and access control system of both Wordpress and Joomla in the most comprehensive way possible. The integration is virtually seamless and it is almost impossible to tell that you are actually running two applications as opposed to one unified system.
is to make WP4J the best it possibly can be, to resolve all issues in a timely and comprehensive manner while providing features that continually improve user experience.
