I'm very new to WordPress, to any kind of Web-Hosting, actually, so my question might be strange or stupid. I apologize in advance. ;)

I recently started to set up the infrastructure for a small project, I'll be working on. It needs a blog (WordPress) and a project management tool (Redmine) and both should blend in as good as possible - especially domain-wise (I'm also trying to get the themes to be similar but lets see how that works out...). I found a hoster for the domain and Wordpress and another for Redmine.

It is pretty easy to set up Wordpress at blog.example.com and create a CNAME Record for redmine.example.org which allows the user to feel like staying within the same domain when going from the blog to project management.

But it would be even nicer, if I could create a page in WordPress which shows the content of redmine.example.org. Then the user would still see the menu, the feeds and whatever else I setup in Wordpress.

Is that even possible? I googled a lot but found nothing.

Thanks in Advance!

  • There're dozens of options. iFrame for example. How do you want to achieve that? Keep in mind that plugin recommendations are off topic. – kaiser Feb 17 '14 at 19:24
  • I had no clue how I wanted to achieve it - hence the question. ;) No, I think that an iFrame is an acceptable solution. What others are there? – Nicolai Parlog Feb 17 '14 at 20:43

In my opinion, the simplest way to do that would be to put the Redmine content in an <iframe>.

While you could (and probably should) create some type of a custom template in your theme for this particular content, there are plugins that embed iframes into content.

  • Wow, that was easy. Apparently too easy for my complicated searches. ;) Thanks, @butlerblog! PS: I would like to upvote but my reputation doesn't allow me to. :( – Nicolai Parlog Feb 17 '14 at 18:53
  • No problem - hope it works out for you. – butlerblog Feb 18 '14 at 16:04
