I am a C# developer and have developed a web site/application that can be hosted on Azure (or any Linux server).
Another person has created a Wordpress blog and he is managing it through standard hosting service provided by Wordpress.com
We want to fuse our sites together so they are accessible through a single domain name. Ideally it would be seamless and we should navigate from Article/Post pages created in Wordpress to URLs handled and rendered by the web app backend program.
We would like to be able to "embed" content generated from the web app into posts created from the Wordpress admin backoffice.
I have no clue what is the best way how to achieve that but I see a few possibilities:
- Use a "headless" Wordpress setup by using the Wordpress REST API?
- Use a subdomain of the Wordpress domain for accessing the webapp functionalities?
- Write a Wordpress plug-in that connects to the webapp by calling some urls?
I have many questions about the details of each of these...maybe there are also better solutions?
