Magento CMS Pages via WordPress

Using Root, you can replace the Magento CMS with WordPress. By removing the /blog/ part of your blog URLs, anything you create in WordPress will be visible at the root of your Magento installation. This means that you can start creating Pages in WordPress and using them as your CMS pages in Magento.

Multiple Blogs in 1 Magento Store

Using Root, it is possible to make it appear to your customers that you have multiple different blogs in a single Magento store. To do this, install Root so that your blog directory is removed from your URL's and install the 'WP No Category Base' plugin. This will remove the /category/ from your category URLs. You can then create different categories to represent different blogs. As an example, if you had your standard blog at /blog/, you could create a new category called 'Events' which would now be listed at /events/.

    Ben has been extremely helpful in assisting with our integration of FishPig's powerful WordPress/Magento extension. It is amazing to have the power of Magento and WordPress in one centralized admin area, and this extension provides that functionality. I recommend not only the extension, but hiring FishPig to help with the installation of the extension. All in all, 5 stars!

    The fishpig magento worpdress integration works as described. It's been a great extension and runs smoothly without any errors. Ben with Fishpig replies back to all of my inquiries less than 24 hours later with clear solutions and answers to all my questions. He's gone above and beyond what I would expect. The multisite extension is a great addition for those running multiple sites. ROOT has worked as described and requires little to no work after integration. Gravity forms works as described. The best addition was the use of visual composer magento integration. With the difficulty created smooth and modern pages in the CMS editor on Magento, Visual composer has worked like a charm. Would highly recommend Fishpig and all their integrations to anyone. Thanks Ben!

    The Magento Wordpress integration was as seamless as can be, the steps were very easy to follow and it works flawlessly! The Root extension has made this even more powerful, now I’m able to fully control all of my content with Wordpress, including the home page which is great for SEO. I couldn’t be happier with all of these products!

    I wanted 3 blogs on my single store Magento installation and Ben set this up for me using Root and the Posttypes extension. I now have a different post type for each different 'section' of my blog so it looks like I have 3 separate distinctive blogs. I have my normal articles at /blog/ I have my company news at /news/ and I have my up and coming events at /events/. In the future I am going to add another blog section at /inspire/ for user submitted content. I am excited about this project again!!!

    Awesome - as always.

    Everything we have used from Fishpig has been excellent. So much so we have started to rethink how we structure our Magento sites to utilise the flexibility of Wordpress to allow our customers ease of use when managing their stores.

    Cool and easy implementation of ROOT makes you using WP as your CMS of Choice with all the great benefits which are come shipped with wordpress. It doesn't change the look so you can just produce content easy on the fly.

    it would be great to build an option to configure the short code for products, or to produce your own, that would give you unlimited solutions to build what ever you expect to build with your magento and WP.

    Sorry for my poor english

    This extremely useful extension has allowed us to seamlessly integrate WP and Magento. We wanted WP content to be served up from the website root, and this extension does it perfectly.

    Kudos to Ben, who's developed all these wonderful Magento modules!

    Root does exactly what it says it does and I am very pleased with the product. I had a small issue due to improper instillation and the support I received was excellent.

    Works great. Should make it easier for our staff to add content to the site without being proficient with html and css.

    I hate the Magento CMS and CMS pages. They're slow to work with and the auto-html is always wrong and stops my pages from validating. When Root came out, I didn't realise it's potential and saw it just as a way to get more refined blog URL's. After speaking to Ben Tideswell at FishPig, I realised this could be used to COMPLETELY REPLACE THE MAGENTO CMS WITH WORDPRESS! Wow!

    I now create all of my pages in WordPress and have them display at the root of my Magento website. For example, I have an FAQ page written in WordPress. I have created a page called FAQ and now customers can go to /faq and view this page. I am currently converting all of my pages to WordPress and even plan on converting the contact page and using Contact Form 7 to include a contact form on this page.

    No more sluggish Magento CMS pages! Hurrah!

    Works like a charm! And finally as well the support from fishpig is excellent. Your eMail will be answered superfast, sundays as well, sometimes within minutes!

    Thanks a lot for outstanding products and service.

Before installing Root, ensure you have the latest version of Magento WordPress Integration and that your blog is integrated into your Magento theme.

You can install Root in the same way that you can install any Magento extension. For detailed instructions, please the see the Magento extension installation guide.

Once you have installed Root, you will find 2 new options under System > Configuration > WordPress > Integration. The first of these options will enable Root while the second will automatically replace your Magento homepage with what ever is configured to be your WordPress homepage.

After enabling Root, you may find that your blog post listing page - which used to be on /blog - is no longer available. You can reinstate this by creating a WordPress page called 'Blog' and selecting Appearances > Customize > Static Front Page from the WordPress Admin and setting the 'Blog' page to list your posts. Your posts will now be available from /blog. You can also add /blog/ into your post permalink structure so that posts retain their original URLs.
