Hi,

I have an existing website which is functioning online well. I want to add 3rd party forum software. What I am trying to achieve is some sort of integration into my existing site. Something like...

http://www.mysite.com/Form

The problem is I dont really want to embed the 3rd party software into my site. Essentially I want the forum to be standalone on IIS and then point to it but still use the same domain without a sub-domain.

Anyone have any advise on this approach? The same goes for a bloggin feature. Blogengine.NET 3rd party software. I want that into site without actually bundling it into my site.

So http://www.mysite.com/Blog

Then I would have a Blog folder and Forum folder outside of my actual site which resides in inetput/wwwroot

The way we accomplished this was by installing the blogging software (we use Wordpress) in a subfolder off the main site.  it uses PHP so aside from the performance (very small,
unnoticeable in fact) hit, it didn't really change settings on .net.  It can run in its own pool, you can even install it outside of your website main structure and set it up as a virtual folder.

Or do you still need further separation?

So I can just create a virtual folder that points to a physical blogengine folder say on the C:\ ? Im just being a novice. If thats the case then I do feel silly. I have spent all morning trying to embed blogengine into a sub-folder. Not for any specific reason like shared membership profiler. I just thought that how its done.

So I can just point a virtual directory called blog at my physical blogging software folder?

http://www.mysite/blog

points to

C:\Blogengine.NET



Just to clarify.

Thanks.
