Wordpress and Joomla? Everything is gone...

Post by TheME » Mon Jun 18, 2007 5:35 pm

Ive been searching all over the internet and these forums and the overall joomla site for a WP to Joomla bridge and I cant find anything. To my knowledge, this plugin/hack/mod existed at one point but now I cant find it anywhere. Also, all the links to jd-wordpress are down as well. Am I in the twilight zone?

Basically I am trying to use joomla as a forum for my wp site and share the logins between the two....anybody?

JD-Wordpress is GPL and as such will be back as soon as I can locate someone with a copy of the latest code.

Chris.

I am a newb and I installed it fine  :)
no readme I dont think.

That .zip file is the COM .zip that you just upload.

I found it very easy to install.

Thanks everyone! Got it to install and I am able to post etc. Unfortunately, I cant edit anything pertaining to the jd-wp directory. For some reason I get an ftp "insufficient user privledge" error on that folder and all subfolders. This is the only folder that I have this problem. I cant CHMOD it, and therefor, i cant upload/edit it an anyway, i.e. upload plugins, themes, etc. Again, this is the only folder on my entire site that I have this problem with. I was able to change edit/chmod all other folders in joomla and all my other folders on my host/other sites on my host...any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

After testing jd-wordpress out, I realized that it is not what I am looking for. Although it is an amazing component, I am looking for something else.

Basically I run a wp blog and I am looking to bridge that with joomlaboard/fireboard so that they share registrations, and, when I post on the wp site the posts get posted in fireboard and when someone replies, the reply shows up as a comment on my wp blog....

I guess this would be a bridge...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks ERMhelp for finding that download... i was looking all over the place for it.

Do you know if this component will bridge the user database to have one user login?

TheME, Where are trying to CHMOD from, your FTP program, JoomlaXplorer or your cpanel? I've had issues in the past similar to what you've described.

I had to CHMOD from the file manager withing my hosting cpanel because nothing else worked. Give it shot and see if that works.

Thanks h2, that at least lead me in the right direction. When I install a com though joomla, it is being installed by a user "apache" not the user name that I use, or anyone else for that matter, to access/write to my site via ftp. I dont know the login details, nor have I ever heard of, for this user so I am kind of stuck...

Either way, this isnt what I am looking for. I would like to run wp and joomla (joomlaboard/fireboard) exclusively/independently have them speak to one another i.e. share posts, share comments, share users....I know it can be done...

The appropriate directories need to be CHMOD'd.  Either JoomlaXplorer or FTP.  You *MUST* have JoomlaXplorer installed to get anything done in Joomla! .  It should be a 100% mandatory component. 

Got it working ?

Theme:

I'm in the process of adding my older (now somewhat antiquated) manuals and tutorials, yes... these -were- the ones found on Marko's site. It might take another day or so as I've not found my originals so... I'm converting from jd-wp to joomla back to wordpress. As such, articles initially may be without accompanying illustrations until I get paths straightened out and images uploaded.

Chris:
If you need the latest, released copies of jd-wp, let me know. I've got `em...

I'm wondering what will be the fate of the OpenWP project now that Predator isn't working on it anymore.  It took me a long time to find the posted files here, I had to do a lot of googling.  It seems the people on this thread are interested in keeping the project alive.  I certainly have a stake in the continued development of this component, as I have an awesome Podpress/OpenWP/Joomla integration that is just perfect for podcasting.

However, the fact that development of OpenWP has stopped has made Podpress upgrades impossible.  I'm not a developer, but I am a network admin, and I would be willing to help out in whatever way I could.  So how about it folks?  What is the future of OpenWP?  Anybody working on anything?  Let me know.  Thanks!

moroco, have you figured out how to do this yet? I am looking to import my wordpress installation INTO joomla as well. I have a large number of subscribers already, and a good-sized post archive with comments. I do not know how to import that over (it is on the same server) into the new joomla bridge to wp

;D its easy to import wordpress database to joomla.

1. backup your wordpress database.
2. use editor like notepad or some else..
3. edit your wp database, replace your wordpress link with your joomla jd-wordpress

default example : replace http://www.domain.com/?p=166 with http://www.domain.com/components/com_jd-wp/?p=166

4. also, wp database, add "jos_" it will be like this example : jos_wp_categories, replace all table. default : wp_categories
5. Save, and then import your wp database into joomla. that all.

see my blog, http://blog.arynet.org click wordpress, i had import my old database.

sorry bad english.

Thank you so much, arynet! But I'm not entirely clear as to which files in wordpress need to be edited (in notepad/etc)?

Do changes need to be made in the administrative area of the original wordpress installation? Or just the wp database and then import that to joomla database? (which I confess, I also am not sure how to do)

The real wordpress was updated to version 2.2.2 but can you upgrade the jd-wp? Any ideas which files to hack and replace?

The reason I removed my site jd-wp is because not able to upgrade, no support from the creator.
