adding other sites, sites not owned by users

  • Question
  • Updated 8 years ago
I love yola, but I have a site which will require the use of another site (because of it's software and functionality) in order for my site to work 100% with my members. What I mean is I have a page that requires the user to use a password and user id in order to access the other site.

My questions are:

Since the other site will be hosted elsewhere what do I need from either them or yola in order to link the two sites together, so that once someone enters the password and user id they will open the other site?

Will this effect my website and hosting with Yola ,such as: not being able to continue to have Yola host my web page and all those features I've come to love - not to mention your fabulous support?

I understand, if the other site has issues, it would be the 2nd site's responsibility to do or fix that site. Honestly I would prefer to keep my yola site within yola family. I'm not too concerned about the other site, since they have their own tech support should I hit a snafu. Hopefully it will be as good as yours, should something go wrong with the software, or I have a question on how to use it as the site administer, they will address it. Since I have no idea of how that other site works from the inside and until I do know it well enough to use, I would prefer to have them host it from their site.

Please tell me this is doable..I've seen a few answers here about other hooking up other sites but they are typically addressing the issue of the yola client who already owns the other site they want to connect to. I am adding only the use of some software which is located on another server. Is there a difference in how this is all handled and done?

Hi, Hatcheck Girl,

I think an iframe of the login page of the other site would work. To add an iFrame to your page, drag and drop an HTML Widget and then paste the following code:

``
` Your browser does not support iframes.

`
``

Replace "http://www.google.com" with the URL you want to use. Please let us know if this does not accomplish your goals.

Oh, gee, where is my brain today? LOL Thanks, Margie! Here it is:

<!-- <iframe src ="http://www.google.com" width="100%" height="300">
<p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p>
</iframe> -->

Take out the <!-- and --> of course! Sorry about that.

Hi, there seems to be some words missing in your post? You would just change the google.com to the url you want.
