WP4J is a complete blogging solution for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0. WP4J allows you to harness the power of the world's most popular blogging platform, Wordpress and integrate it seamlessly as a Joomla Component. This is not a bridge, this is Wordpress running as a Joomla component with all the capabilities of both systems at the tip of your fingers. This is a full multiuser integration with the ability of users to have there very own blog(s) with full administrative control only a mature blogging platform can give. This is the best blogging solution for Joomla hands down.
It is just a manner of installing as you would any other component. Discover install also works for those with upload limits on their server. Complete garbage collection on uninstall also, nothing left behind to clutter things up if you should uninstall (which is doubtful)
No hacks made to either Wordpress or Joomla, this means that you can upgrade Wordpress via the Wordpress Admin area, you are not at our mercy to upgrade Wordpress if security issues are found and mended.
*Fast, Real Fast
WP4J does not load the Wordpress API along with the Joomla Framework, this would be just plain silly and put too much strain on the server. WP4J runs Wordpress in a completely separate process so that things remain neat and tidy, this avoids potential conflicts between Wordpress and Joomla.
WP4J runs Wordpress output thru the com_content layouts and as most templates provide layout templates for the com_content component that means that WP4J will integrate seamlessly with most templates without requiring CSS modification. It should work fine out of the box, but if you need to make changes, there is a style sheet provided that can be overridden by the template, this is also the case for all layouts used.
*Mature Bogging Platform
Wordpress has been around for a longtime and it is not the most popular blogging platform for no reason, there are literally thousands of developers enhancing this system and new plugins and widgets being released every day. There are literally thousands of quality extensions for Wordpress and these will virtually all work with WP4J. Wordpress is very refined and the Administrative features will absolutely blow you away.
All the power of the Wordpress Permalink SEO system with full compatibility with Joomla SEO. It has been stated time and time again that Wordpress Permalinks enjoy a generally higher page rank than other such systems.
*Full Widget to Module Conversion
WP4J gives you the ability to display Wordpress widgets anywhere on your site
*Wordpress to Joomla Role Conversion
You have the ability to set Wordpress Roles to Joomla Groups, this means that your Joomla users will automatically have access to Wordpress ACL levels reflecting their Joomla Group membership.
