Oh joy, joy. Oh, happy day. Thanks to corephp‘s tweet I am in 7th heaven. Two of my favorite open source products just got married. WordPress is now available for Joomla 1.5. This couldn’t come at a better time since I’ve been working on a Joomla 1.5 for our Choose Civility (this is the old site) initiative at Howard County Library. Ron Nicodemus, of Nicodemus Communications Group, had suggested that we include a blog for the new Choose Civility site. Originally we had wanted to use the blog component inherent in Joomla but to be honest it isn’t the greatest.
I have installed, maintained and tweaked 6 WordPress blogs for the library. I use WordPress.com for my own blog. So needless to say having WordPress be a part of Joomla (been involved with 5 Joomla sites for work) is a dream come true. This is a great marriage and I look forward to celebrating their union. Mazal tov!
