    Has anyone found a way to integrate the WordPress headers and footers to CE ?

    I have a WP site and I need my header graphics and navigation and the footer to populate CE template.

    Would appreciate if you can give me hand with this please.

    Cheers

    I actually have one of my developers working on this right now. I know that there is a way to tap into a Wordpress file to use the Wordpress variables in a external PHP script but I can't remember how. I'll keep you updated.

    I would assume no. The core files are very much different. The only way to really do it is if you copy all the template files over, update the reference code (to include your full http address) then possibly... Otherwise you do not have that core functionality.

    For anyone looking to do this - this is not a beginner level operation.

    You should be able to go to your word press theme in your web browser, and view source it. You can then copy all the header/footer HTML from there and add it to your ClientExec. You'll likely need to change paths etc, as Shelby mentioned.

    I actually moved away from WP since i am a PHP programmer and i can do front end CSS/XHTML work as well so, I am making my site using PHP with a framework called codeigniter and using CSS , XHTML and jQuery.

    Thanks for the info guys. this will help other people who use WP.

    Great read so does that mean all I need to do is copy over all the header/footer into clientexec and then use <base href> tag? Sounds too easy.

    All I do is vie my page and then go to source. I copy the html code for header and footer and add that to any template I'm using. CE makes it easy by doing this in settings>style. I then copy my CSS files over to the CE template directory and reference them in the header.

    I then display default CE page and then tweak my wordpress css to make it all work again.

    Fixing the CSS is the tricky part finding out which styles have to change to fix what's broken. It would be easier if scripts that intend to be integrated use NONSTANDARD IDs and classes so as not to conflict wth CMS and other standard scripts.

    I used the bridge you mentioned, but it was still young 1.0.0 and totally broke my themes for WordPress. It is good though if you are using their base TwentyTwelve theme though. :)

    All you do is go to view source on your website, copy the code, then paste it in the "Head" and "Body" section in your clientexec dashboard undering settings -> styling
    Everything in your <head> section goes in the head section of your styling, the actual header design, which will be after </head> and in your <body> section will go in the body section of Clientexec.
    If you still need help I can do this for a small fee, contact me directly if interested.

    You can see I did this on my site:
    http://bluelabelhost.com (WP)
    https://bluelabelhost.com/members (clientexec)

    Any update on integrating ClientExec with Wordpress? The plugin mentioned in this thread is no longer available.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
