I was asked to let the user to edit an existing site articles using Worpress.

But because the site has a lot of php code (not used for the articles) that would take quite a lot to convert in WP plugins, and replicating the actual templates would take some time too, so I was thinking to keep the actual site, and use WP just as a powerful editor, and from within the pages just call some WP function to print the articles text.

I would skip all the WP templating system, all I need is print the article text in the existing pages. The site tree is not going to change.

Is this possible? Any hints on what to look for? Thanks.
