Recommendations for Integrating Into Site Header/Footer


(Jono Bacon) #1

Hi Everyone,

A common need my clients have is to integrate Discourse into an existing website so it shares the look and feel. This typically involves having the header/footer share the design and functionality of the site it fits into and then some CSS tweaks to ensure the same CSS rules apply to Discourse.

A limitation here is that (as far as I know), Discourse can only use static HTML in the header, so if the general site header has a logged in / logged out state, this is not reflected on the Discourse header.

How do you recommend this is solved? Is there a way of integrating Discourse into a site more elegantly than simply using an IFRAME here?

Thanks in advance.
