Latest News: I have tested this package on WordPress 3.4.1 and Joomla 2.5.6 and it works great. 

I have decided to change my website to WordPress as it is mainly a blogging site. However I still support Joomla and these instructions still work well between Joomla and WordPress.

Show WordPress post in joomla package for joomla 1.5, 1.7, 2.5 and wordpress 3.0 using the beta version. I have been searching for a long time for something as simple as this to show the latest post from wordpress into joomla. I am so happy to have come across this site clickroutes (This link is none existent anymore). They have done a wonderful job in developing this module for joomla and plugin for wordpress. If it helps you drop a line on their site to show some appreciation for their great effort and hard work. By the way it is FREE :)

It is so simple to set up that it is hard to believe. However not everyone will have the same experience I did setting it up.

I have changed the code to make it work with Joomla 1.7. The code below will illustrate the changes.

////////////////////////// joomla 1.5 format /////////////////////

<params>
<param name=”cache” type=”radio” default=”0″ label=”Enable Cache” description=”Select whether to cache the content of this module”>
<option value=”0″>No</option>
<option value=”1″>Yes</option>
</param>
<param name=”j_blog_url” type=”text” default=”” label=”Blog URL (http://host/path/)” description=”Blog URL (http://somehost/path/)” />
<param name=”j_num_posts” type=”text” default=”” label=”Number of Posts” description=”Number of Latest Posts” />
<param name=”j_num_words” type=”text” default=”” label=”Number of Words” description=”” />
</params>
</install>

////////////////// modified for joomla 1.6 and joomla 1.7 /////////////////////

<config>
<fields name=”params”>
<fieldset name=”basic”>
<field name=”cache” type=”radio” default=”0″ label=”Enable Cache” description=”Select whether to cache the content of this module”>
<option value=”0″>No</option>
<option value=”1″>Yes</option>
</field>
<field name=”j_blog_url” type=”text” default=”” label=”Blog URL (http://host/path/)” description=”Blog URL (http://somehost/path/)” />
<field name=”j_num_posts” type=”text” default=”” label=”Number of Posts” description=”Number of Latest Posts” />
<field name=”j_num_words” type=”text” default=”” label=”Number of Words” description=”” />

</fieldset>
</fields>
</config>
</extension>
