I am a happy RW7, Stacks 3, and Foundation user. I have built several websites with these tools, and they all works beautifully Besides that I am a passioned genealogist, and one of my sites are made with the purpose to support fellow genealogists.
But I am challenged on integration other applications on my RW pages.
The way I do it now, is by using the offsite stack, and it works very fine, but it has some
I offer a service to my users where they can establish and maintain their private famiy trees. The application I use for that is called Webtrees and is based on open source software, and MySQL.
All the services I offer for my users are free of charge, and the only way I can get a small coverage of the expences I have ofering services is by adding ads to my site.
So much about the background story.
What I have done to make things work is to install Webtrees on a location on my server, and to use the offsite stack to present it on my site. It is important to keep the users on my site for a number of reasons:
- The ads
- The site offers a lot of other services that users should be able to access direktly
- Security reasons. I have login and registration security on my site, because I want to offer the highest degree of data security for my users.
The problem is, that the Webtrees application is located somewhere else, and the URL is shown several places in the application - which just might encourage the smartest of users to try and access this URL in stead of my site. This means problems regardig all three above mentioned reasons.
So my question is if anybody knows some way to make a “real” integration for such an application.
I hope this makes sense - and I hope that somebody have a “golden idea”
