  2. The Elgg-Wordpress bridge is a commercial development. It is not going to be released as plugin in our stores. You can see the demo of this elgg wordpress bridge in this site itself. The blog section is wordpress and the remaining is an Elgg install. If you need this development contact us for a quote.
