In blogging, the necessity of fresh and unique content is inevitable. But it is nearly impossible for a single person to come up with new and unique ideas every time. There are many constraints that prevent many blogger from being able to add fresh content to their blog on a regular basis, and because of which there is always an urge to seek guest authors or co-authors to write along with them.
It’s really time consuming to take articles from guest authors through emails and then adding them manually. You must try to automate the process and build a community where various authors can interact and work together to benefit your blog.
Though the idea of having a multi-authored blog is fascinating, but it is really difficult to manage a multi-authored blog without proper knowledge and right tools. Therefore, in this article, I have complied a list of the 15 best WordPress plugins you can have to manage your multi-authored blog efficiently.

Since WordPress 3.0 was released to the public, we have been bombarded with questions about when our release will be updated. In time, my friends! A lot has changed in the code base and we are working hard at getting our update ready. Normally it takes approx 1-2 months to prepare a release.
I am writing this post to answer many of the questions that we have been getting about WordPress 3.0 for Joomla! from both users and prospective users.
WordPress for Joomla! and WordPress MU for Joomla! are two of our most popular flagship products. About two months ago we released a major update to our WordPress for Joomla! component with major feature enhancements and bug fixes. Today we are announcing a similar update for our WordPress MU Joomla! component. This update is packed with new features, bug fixes, and major performance improvements.
To upgrade the component, simply uninstall the component and install the new version. Be sure to read the ‘Before you upgrade” section below to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
The latest release of WordPress MU is out! This release is a big one and will require some installing/uninstalling depending on how many WordPress MU modules you have installed on your site. To update, simply uninstall the component and install the new version. Please read the “Before you upgrade” section below to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Over the weekend, one user of WordPress for Joomla! submitted 4 new plugins to us. We had one of them already, but she added some extra documentation by the looks of it. These plugins are available for WordPress single blog and WordPress MU:
- Flickr Gallery
- Share This (not new, but updated)
This past week we have received many questions regarding the following article: http://mashable.com/2009/09/05/wordpress-please-upgrade/. It states that there is a bug going around that can affect older versions of WordPress. (The two newest releases are immune to the bug, but older versions are affected.) A lot of our users have asked if sites running WordPress for Joomla! are vulnerable and how to go about upgrading ‘corePHP’s version of WordPress to the newest release.
After a full review of the current vulnerabilities that affect WordPress, we have concluded that ‘corePHP’s distribution of WordPress is not affected because the data is handled through Joomla!.
We are currently developing the integration for version 2.8.4.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
For the first time, we are posting our popular newsletter to our blog. Read on for some great Labor Day deals!
Excuse the extremely crammed title, but it stands for WordPress for Joomla! and WordPress MU for Joomla! Releases.
Unfortunately our releases do not include 2.8.x because there is still a lot of code that needs to be migrated over. However, our current releases (WP4J! 18.104.22.168 and WPMU4J! 22.214.171.124) fix a lot of bugs and add a few requested features for both extensions. This should significantly decrease the amount of support tickets you have to send in, making your job – and our job – much easier!
Today a client and I were working together to get his website done. As some of you know, WordPress MU for Joomla! doesn’t allow the <embed> HTML tag, which means that the users can’t embed videos. Fortunately, the client found a WordPress Video Plugin. After testing it I realized that it works without any modifications, so I added it to the list of plugins for WordPress for Joomla! and WordPress MU for Joomla!
Hope this solution works for you.

I just finished a tag cloud module for WordPress MU for Joomla!. This module allows you to pick any blog ID and display the tag cloud for that blog. You can also pass the parameters that you want using this guide. Just make sure you are passing the parameters in this format: “name1=value1&name2=value2”.
This module is great if you are using the Sitewide Tags plugin.
