I am looking to add a blog to my site. The site is developed using Joomla. Has anyone included a Wordpress blog to a Joomla website?
Good question. I was actually looking into both solutions that you mentioned. I could not find a Wordpress-like blog component under the Joomla Extensions (I may have missed them)
The other option was to add a Wordpress Blog to my Joomla site. With this option would you know what folder I would need to save Wordpress in? Do I need to create a folder called Blog? I am new to this, how would I create a link to the Wordpress blog?
You can add both if you like. Just upload wordpress to your server in a sub directory then add a link in your menu to your blog.
You can change over to wordpress and have a CMS site and a blog.
If you need any help just PM me.
While Joomla is a CMS program it does present content like a blog. Unless theere is something that Wordpress does that Joomla does not... there is not need to use both.
Although as mentioned is is easy to use both too.
Some or i mean almost all wordpress bootcamp are tackling both platform and i guess the same thing goes on joomla. Now i think it will be all depend on your taste and strategies. For a beginner i prefer wordpress as it has really easy to navigate unlike joomla, you have to be a little more technical.
I haven't used Joomla before and don't have any idea about it. But i do use Wordpress. I thought Joomla is like a blog too like Wordpress. Hmmm... Does Joomla have include plugins too like wordpress does or is it just too technical that you need to learn some PHP to use it?
