Bit of an open question I must admit but I began working on my own CMS in codeigniter. Trouble is - it is getting massive and taking very long. Now I like that wordpress has most of the things already integrated so I was just wondering who here has integrated wordpress with codeigniter successfully.

I want to create my own custom php in codeigniter because its nice and easy but integrate in wp.

I think it would be rather tough to take an existing, very mature product, such as Wordpress, and retrofit it onto a framework. What would the benefit be?

@iamthwee,

After thinking more about this and the efforts you have already invested on your CMS, would it be possible for you to just build the blog in CI? The reason is that you are almost there. Just few more steps and you're done. You can do it Dude :).

A lot. Some wordpress themes come with their own page builders, fully e-commerce modules (woocommerce) and themed and styled by a professional.

For example, a client might like the look of a theme and it would be easier/cost effective to provide the option with wordpress.

Any bespoke modules I was thinking could be added with codeigniter. I could hook this into a wordpress 'template.'

It's definitely something to look into as a time saver.

That being said, like veedeo said I'm close to finishing off.

In fact I already have a blog, full login system with authentication via email, full forum system built from scratch, full navigation system with drag and drop, almost complete page builder.

I'll look into those link tomorrow.
