The future of WordPress for Joomla!

[UPDATE]: Also read this post.

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.

  • You will be able to migrate from a standalone WordPress 3.0 to our WordPress 3.0 for Joomla! solution. The users in WordPress more than likely won’t be able to be migrated. Same goes for the standalone version of WordPress 2.x to WordPress 3.0 for Joomla!
  • You will be able to migrate from WordPress 2.x for Joomla! (any version) to WordPress 3.0 for Joomla!, while keeping all of your data.
  • WordPress 3.0 for Joomla! will be sold as a brand new yearly subscription.
  • Current WordPress for Joomla! users with an active subscription will be able to upgrade to this new subscription for an upgrade fee. We have not polished all of the details yet, so details will be released a few days prior to our release of WordPress 3.0 for Joomla!
  • Can I upgrade to WordPress 3.0 standalone and make it work with the current package instead of waiting for you guys? The answer is no – this is because we have heavily modified the WordPress core to make it work within the Joomla! environment, allowing you the seamless integration that is provided with the product. Please be patient!

I hope this answers the questions that many of our users have. If any others come up, I will keep this post updated.

Thanks for your interest!

    Thanks – great information.

    One question conserning security and upgrades: When there are new releases of WP, there is a very easy access to do the upgrades on a standalone WP. How will this work in the Joomla – WP. Maybe the issue of upgrading the WP for security reasons are not relevant as loong as it is integrated into Joomla – and therefore leaving all the security issues a matter of keeping Joomla updated. Can you please explain how this will be working? Regards BentRS

      Bent,

      For the last and a half year that we have been offering the WordPress for Joomla solution, there has not been one WordPress security issue that has affected our release, all of the requests are routed through Joomla, I guess you could say that it provides an extra level of security.

      Hope this answers your question.

    I purchased wordpress subscription. Where can I find more templates? I am using a RocketFish template for my site and I want to match them up.

      Roy,
      Our WordPress solution comes with a template that normally takes in the styles of your current Joomla template, this way there is no need to have to templates in one page.

      Let me know if you have any additional questions.
