I am the senior developer of a modular PHP Framework system which provides my customers with a Content Management System (CMS), ECommerce system, and a variety of other modules (slideshows, testimonials, forms, FAQs, etc etc)
My framework handles all URLs on the site via an existing
.htaccess file and dispatches those URLs to the appropriate module.
One feature of this framework that is very important to the users is the fact that the framework handles the generation of the entire page strutter including navigation, providing a consistent look, feel, and navigation from page to page. It is very important that we keep this.
A number of my customers have requested we add a WordPress module. Is it possible to integrate or "embed" WordPress within an existing PHP Framework and navigation template, so that the WordPress engine parses the URL and performs all approbate actions as it normally would, but outputs only the HTML content for the body of the site, allowing my framework to handle the "template" HTML?
FYI, I am an expert in PHP, but have barely touched WordPress. PHP-heavy answers don't frighten me at all (and in fact would be appreciated, if applicable)
