WordBridge - WordPress.com to Joomla Bridge
===========================================

This is WordBridge, Cognidox Ltd's WordPress to Joomla bridge. 
It can be used to connect a Joomla site with either with a Wordpress.com 
hosted blog or a blog on a self-hosted WordPress installation.
Once a blog is linked via a Joomla menu item, updates to the WordPress 
blog will automatically appear on the Joomla site.

Installation:
------------

To install the component, follow the steps below:

1) Log into your Joomla site as an administrator.
2) Ensure both the cURL and DOM PHP extensions are enabled.
3) Select Extensions -> Extension Manager to bring up the Joomla
   Extension Manager:Install screen.
4) Upload the com_wordbridge zip file and click 'Upload & Install';
   the component will be installed and enabled within Joomla.

Using the Component:
-------------------

To use the component to link to a WordPress blog follow the steps
below:

1) Log into your Joomla site as a user who can add menu entries.
2) Use Joomla's Menu Manager to add a new menu item.
3) For the Menu Item Type, select WordBridge -> List of blog entries.
4) In the menu item's WordBridge Settings, set the Wordpress blog name
   to the name of your WordPress.com blog.
     e.g. If the blog is available at http://example.wordpress.com/, 
          then the blog name to enter is 'example'. 
          If the blog is self-hosted, enter the fully qualified
          hostname of the blog. So, if the blog is http://myblog.example.com/,
          the blog name to enter is 'myblog.example.com'.
5) Save the menu item entry. The blog will now appear in Joomla. New 
   entries posted to the wordpress.com site will automatically appear
   in the Joomla site.
6) If the blog is self-hosted, install the WordBridge Pro WordPress
   component in WordPress. The WordBridge Pro plugin can be downloaded
   from the project page:
