Magento and CMS Integration


Magento Ecommerce

 

PROBLEM

Magento Community Edition lacks enterprise-level CMS features

SOLUTION

There are full-blown CMS integrations in TYPO3, Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla that can take it to the next level.

Ecommerce has literally been taken by storm by a commercially backed Open Source shopping cart called Magento.  There are currently three editions of Magento; Community (free), Professional and Enterprise.  The most popular community edition however lacks enterprise-level CMS capabilities.  There are wonderful CMS features appearing in commercial editions of Magento like CMS+ while the community edition has nothing comparable yet.  Let's explore the options.

TYPO3

Typogento - An integration of Magento into TYPO3.  TYPO3 displays products and much more from Magento utilizing Magento's built-in API.  Additionally a TYPO3 extension must be installed.  There are no core file code modifications necessary.  Typogento also has it's own dedicated website.

Drupal

Drupal - An integration of Magento into Drupal.  Drupal has multiple modules like Magento eCommerce XML-RPC API, Order Synchronizer with Magento, Products Synchronizer with Magento and Users Synchronizer with Magento.  You will also need to install the Magento extension into Drupal.

Wordpress

Fishpig_Wordpress_Integration - An integration of Wordpress into Magento.  Magento displays blog articles and more from Wordpress using XML blocks.  Here's the documentation for the integration.

Joomla!

Jira_MageBridge - An integration of Magento into Joomla!  "MageBridge adds Magento to the Joomla! component-area, it also handles user authentication, content plugins, blocks as modules, and much much more." Check out their MageBridge Joomla! integration website for more info.
