WordPress for Joomla! 2.9.1 RC 1

By releasing RC1, we hope to avoid a follow up release (2.9.1.1). All code from WordPress 2.9.1 has been migrated to our codebase. Help us out – Download it and test it.

There is a “Release Candidates” under the WordPress download folder, here you will find all of the new component files, there is an alternative and complete install you can use.

Please help us make the final release the best it can be.

    * Install Component Error

    1. Rafael Corral

      lafrance,

      Ooops! That would have been my fault.
      It is all fixed now. Thank you for testing it out so quickly :)

      Cheers!

    I too cannot get the installer to work. Here’s the error joomla gives me. This is for the complete version.

    * JInstaller::install: File ‘/home6/weddedaw/public_html/tmp/install_4bb0a0c46f490/install.wordpress.php’ does not exist.
    * Component Install: Could not copy PHP install file.

      Adam,

      I am not having problems installing any more, have you tried the alternative install? What version of Joomla are you using?

      Rafael

    Hello!

    Install on my live site com_wordpress_2.9.1.RC1_complete.zip

    Only problem there seem to be now is that you have to uninstall previous version first This always make me feel not comfortable component should be able to install on top of your existing one.

    Pierre
