Can I add Bakery module to a non-CMS(?) webpage?
« on: August 04, 2015, 11:40:10 AM »
Hi Folks,

If I have a 'standard' HTML webpage (a webpage that does not have a CMS), can I install the Bakery module and use that inside the page?

If I have a 'standard' HTML webpage (a webpage that does not have a CMS), can I install the Bakery module and use that inside the page? In the old days, I would have thought that an iFrame could be the answer, and embed the plain CSS+CMS page in that iFrame.

Bakery (or other WB-Addons) are not Stand-Alone-Modules, there needs the wb-core, the cms

but its possible to install the cms in a subdirectory and using the pages like bakery in  a iframe on your old page. its also possible, to have only the bakery pages in a cms

I'm sure, if you have some experience with a or this cms, you will never change to a normal html-page

Thanks jacobi22, it's the idea to just have the Bakery module used inside a page or pages for a site that does not have a CMS installed. I myself love Website Baker (have used it for 6 years now), but I am asking for a friend who is dabbling in website design, and hasn't graced his presence with a CMS yet! :)

This is where I would need the help in getting instructions. For me, I have always thought that Bakery can't exist without being added as a module to the WB (or similar) CMS environment.

install WB in a sub-directory like the "normal" cms and and there the bakery module as a module and then build your complete shop there
if you are finish, there are two way's,
1. the iframe-solution - i'm not sure, but i think, it switch to the cms, if you buy a article for payment instructions etc
2. a direkt-link from the html-project to the bakery-page. if you use the same design in the cms, nobody see's that you switch to a cms

I'll give that a go, most of it I have been able to get working, the rest I just need to figure out for myself. Thanks for the tips. :)
