I would like to create or buy a script that would be able to post a new article on Joomla from a WordPress website. I often find the opposite as a solution...

How can code this outside of the local Joomla environment?


  • To clarify, are you wanting the WP post to become a new article in the Joomla database or just display the WP post on the Joomla website? – YellowWebMonkey Dec 18 '15 at 16:36
  • I would like the wordpress article to become a new article in Joomla indeed. However, to make is more simple, how can I post a new article in a Joomla installation from an external website? I would figure the wordpress part on my own afterward... Thanks! – Yann de Champlain E-SOFT Dec 18 '15 at 17:55
  • I don't think anything like this exists, due to the massive difference in the database structure for both CMS's – Lodder Dec 18 '15 at 18:25
  • OK. So basically to post an article in Joomla each plugin is doing direct db access? No api nothing? – Yann de Champlain E-SOFT Dec 18 '15 at 19:29

You can use the API for Joomla to add articles.

Google is your friend: Using the Joomla! 3.3 API to add articles programmatically


I think obGrabber is the most suitable Joomla extension with what you want.
