Drupal to Joomla --- How easy or hard to convert modules?

Discussion in 'Drupal' started by mnymkr, May 16, 2006.

    I used to use Drupal but have found Joomla to be much mor straightforward. Is it terribly difficult to convert a Drupal module to Joomla? I would like to convert the Paypal donation module that displays who donates and how much.

    it will be a lot easier to just take a joomla module & extend it to display who donates how much..

    I got really excited to see a post on Joomla to write components then found that only one step in the tutorial worked.

    :confused: it can't be any harder than coding drupal modules. especially not converting drupal mods to joomla mods.

    there is a plethora of information on developing modules, components & mambots.. this should get you started..
    http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,47524.0.html
    http://dev.joomla.org/component/option,com_jd-wiki/Itemid,32/
    http://help.joomla.org/content/section/12/125/
    http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/board,60.0.html

    and like i said just grab one of the GNU GPL paypal donation modules & extend it to store the username/amount/date in a db table & display it in the module.

    it will still be easier for whoever you get to do it to just build upon an existing joomla mod instead of converting a drupal one. my $0.02
