    Sorry if this is in the wrong location. Moderators, feel free to move it :)

    So I have my joomla site, which I have had for a LONG time, and just recently installed wordpress at xyz.com/blog. The only problem I have is that when I go to the blog the whole layout and everything is different... I don't want that :(
    I want my wordpess blog to look exactly like my main joomla site so it doesn't feel like you are on a different page. I downloaded my joomla template and put it in a .zip file and then tried uploading that into the wordpress templates. That totally didn't work :eek:

    What can I do? I have seen sites where their wordpress blog is integrated on their main template like http://www.bgrefrigeration.net/blog/

    Is there something I need to tweak in my joomla template to make it work?
    This is the error I got when trying to upload my joomla theme into wordpress:

    Unpacking the package?
    Installing the theme?
    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
    Theme install failed.




    I will give thanks to anyone that can help me!!!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Is there a free program that isn't too difficult to use that can convert my joomla template into a wordpress template?

    You'll have to pay to have it done. Shouldn't cost too much.

    man, its costs are $200+ because its not like a 30 minutes coding job fixing some stuff here and there.. They have to recode a lot.

    Edit: there is an easier solution for you, take a look on rockettheme, they have the same themes for joomla and wp done. So, pick one, and grab them either for cash, or look it up somewhere to download them.
