I've used CakePHP for ages and as a framework I really like it and it works nicely. However, it has a nasty snag.
Say you wan't CakePHP to be your main application in the website root (
/), and you wanted a Wordpress blog in a subdirectory (
/blog/). In order to deal with Cake's routing system, as far as I understand it you have to use .htaccess ignore rules (and specify EVERY directory you want separate), or put wordpress in
/app/webroot/, and that works fine.
Is there another way of avoiding this (because it's really too awkward)? Do other frameworks have the same problem? Are there ways round it in other frameworks?
Reason being, I have a potential project to start and I really want to use CakePHP (or at least a framework), and I can't have this awkward snag getting in the way. I just thought I would ask to see if there was a simple answer before I actually started to code anything.
Many thanks :)
