Hi Guys, I have a Joomla 2.5 website. I would like to integrate a blog. I have 2 options

EasyBlog -
Wordpress -

I know wordpress is very Google friendly, popular, easy to use and free. EasyBlog is specifically built for Joomla, and about $70, can be accessed from the Joomla Admin. What do you think the best option to go with?

Thanks heaps

    I can't believe there isn't a free module for Joomla to enable blog-like behavior. But if not, I would go with easy blog instead of running WordPress inside of a Joomla site.

    There is also WordPress for Joomla from CorePHP - similar costing I think. I have had limited experience with it but it seems to offer a WordPress user/blogger experience within a Joomla Admin framework.

    Personally I would probably also consider a normal Joomla articles authoring approach with  an advanced comment option like Disqus.

    Accepted Solution

    A good solution is to use K2 with Joomla

    Most Joomla users use the article & categories of Joomla to create their blog
    they add extra plugins to add more features.

    Some commercial components to add a blog to Joomla

    Or maybe consider to switch your entire projet to Expression Engine

    Of course if you plan to blog a lot you can use Wordpress but you will have to maintain 2 systems (lot of updates).
