[FX.php List] Inserting a web app into a WordPress site

Hi Bob

I once had a client that moved their main (non-FM-connected) website to WP -- which they maintained -- and wanted to include some of their FM content in it.  Their basic WP theme allowed them to add iframes to their pages, so I designed a CWP page -- hosted on a different server -- to fit inside the iframe.  It worked well for what they wanted (view a hard-coded category via WP, which displayed upcoming classes for that category via GET in the iframe, then sign up & pay).  Note, though, that you can't work with Session vars inside an iframe (at least not cross-domain), so when a user was ready to purchase an item (w/ nec'y login), the "signup" link sent them out of the WP site onto a signup page on the client's separate/standard CWP web server.  The URL changed, but visually it was seemless.

Not full integration, certainly, but quick-ish and perfect for their needs.
