    DivaVocals, I've been following your advice for the past day or two (searching the forums), after experiencing the hardship that is WOZ... taring that off, and then going to the numinix solution. Afterwords, I developed a side box that is compatible with it. Now you can have your cake, and eat it too... this method uses the wordpress API, so you can change the format of how everything is displayed if you so wish, or even use other functions.. Haven't tried it, but you could also display the archives and last several posts no problemo with this route and some knowledge.

    AFTER you have successfully integrated numinix’s solution for wordpress blog, paste this code into a brand new file, save it as: wordpress_posts.php and save it at: includes/modules/sideboxes/YOUR_TEMPLATE/wordpress_posts.php
    Then, enable the box from your layout boxes controller… style the box appropriately, notice the width is coded into the style. Change that to match your page. Also change the link to match your blog’s URI. It may not be the best solution, but it works great.
    PHP Code:

    <?php
    //Wordpress SideBox
    // Display sidebox if TRUE
    $show_wordpress_posts true;
    if (
    $show_wordpress_posts == true) {
    ?>
    <div class=”leftBoxContainer” id=”wordpress-blog” style=”width: 195px;”>
    <h3 class=”leftBoxHeading” id=”blog-heading”><a href=”http://litebrightraves.com/raveblog” title=”Blog”>Blog [more]</a></h3>
    <div class=”categoriesContent centeredContent”>
    <?php
    if ($_GET['main_page'] != ‘blog’) {
    // Include WordPress
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’false);
    require(
    ./wordpress/wp-load.php’);
    query_posts(‘showposts=5&#8242;);}
    while (have_posts()): the_post(); ?>
    <h2><a href=”<?php the_permalink(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <?php 
    endwhile;
    ?>
    </div>
    </div>
    <?php }
    ?>

    Awesome!!!Bravo to you!!!

    I have sideboxes I use with the Numinix solution too.. The nice thing about these sideboxes is that could function without the blog embedding.

    Default Re: Wordpress On Zencart / Released

    Hello All,

    I am getting an error in step 4 where I need to confirm the URL path under Admin>WOZ Manager which says:

    WordPress config(wp-config.php) was not found.

    When I download the install file the extra_configures folder located in ZC_ROOT/includes/ was empty. Can someone please provide me with the wp-config.php file for WOZ V 1.5 or tell me where I can get it?

    Thanks

    I was also planning to install this mod but shied away after reading through this thread.

    It seems that many others had a go at integrating WP into ZC.

    Just googled "Wordpress On Zencart" and got these results:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=Wordp...fe=images&tbs=

    The most recent result shows a date of 28 Oct 2010, blog by Michael Wender. This seems to be a working way of integrating WP.

    His "solution" is the opposite of WOZ or the Numinix solution.. Where WOZ and Numinix are designed to embed WP inside ZC, Michael Wender's solution is attempting to embed ZC inside WP. Even he recently admits that a better way to go about this today would be to use a WP plugin if WP is the primary platform your site is built upon.. (his solution is over 3 years old.. WP and ZC have changed a fair bit in that time, and his solution seems to be showing signs of these changes..)

    Yep, you're right

    Would you generally give to Numinix's solution?

    Yep.. That's been my general position throughout this thread.. WOZ is FULL of issues IMHO, and not worth the trouble of "banging" together.. The Numinix solution works.. I will post the same cause I've posted before about this solution.. DON'T SKIP ANY OF THE INSTALL STEPS!!! I've helped a coupla folks fix their Numinix embedding installs and the common causes for failure I've found are 1 or 2 things:

    1. Skipping steps from the Numinix instrucions
    2. Leaving WOZ behind (must remove WOZ in FULL!)

    Good luck..

    Hi everybody, to add to the list of incompatibilities of the WOZ mod. The RSS feed contribution http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=733 does NOT work when WOZ is installed. The feed pages return a WordPress error page.

    Hi

    I have managed to set this module and all seems to work ok from a user point of view, however it seems to block crawlers from accessing my pages (Categories and Products).

    Has anyone else found this and did you manage to sort it?
