PowerStore work alongside a WordPress site?

PowerStore work alongside a WordPress site?

Can PowerStore be used with a site created in WordPress?

If so, would it be best to put PowerStore and WordPress, each in their own separate directory in the root of the site? Or what would be the best configuration to get it to all work together?

I've used WebAssist extensions before, but I am just learning to create sites in WordPress and hoping that I can use WebAssist for the online store part of the site.

I have a working WordPress site on my local MAMP server. Now I'm just trying to learn the best way to add PowerStore to it.

Also, I'm not sure how I would make the navigation work to connect the PowerStore files and the WordPress files. How would I add navigation in WordPress's main navigation that would go to PowerStore product pages and vice versa?

And would I also need to create a new main home page in the root of the site with the main navigation pointing to files in both sections? How would I make the links point to the files in the WordPress directory? Am I on the right track or totally off base?

I've searched all over and can't find the answer. Would be grateful for any suggestions :)

yes, power store should work alongside a wordpress site.
You should install word press into one folder of the site and power store into another .

Worpress in Powerstore

I apparently can't make a new thread so here's what I need to know:

I have successfully uploaded wordpress into my powerstore site. I created a custom page called "Blog" so it shows a sub-heading link in the Support section of the menu (renamed Technical). I want to change the link in the sub-menu for Blog from "page.php?Custom%20Pages=3" to "blog" so customers can click the link and go straight to blog.

Please advise of where I make that change.

to make changes to the menu you will need to edit the webassist/plugins/main_menu/menu.php file.


the menu item you refer to is dynamicly genereted, you wont bbe able to change it, but you can add a link to the blog by editin this code:

php:
<ul class="level-1">

<?php
echo($WACustomPages->Body);
?>
</ul>



to:

php:
<ul class="level-1">

<li><a href="http:www.//rubiomonocoatonline.com/blog">blog</a></li>
<?php
echo($WACustomPages->Body);
?>
</ul>

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and the placement was correct. However, for me the following link worked.

<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="/blog">Blog</a></li>
<?php
echo($WACustomPages->Body);
?>
