Embed a Joomla created menu into another php script
Posted on 2012-04-10
Hello. I am working on a site that has a separate Joomla CMS and a PHP based ecommerce system. I would like to be able to somehow display the Joomla top or main menu within the shopping cart system template. I am trying to create a single consistent menu across the two platforms and would really love to be able to use Joomla to manage the menu rather than hard coding it into the ecommerce system. Is there a technique that would allow this to happen?
I am aware of the wrapper functions and the different eCommerce systems available for Joomla, but I want to utilize this legacy system because it is highly modified and tuned to the owners particular business. I don't want to have to create a custom component or module that would embed the ecommerce platform into the CMS and possibly break compatibility with other ecommerce addons. Thanks for the help.
