Integrating Magneto with another CMS

Hi,
first of all I would like to express my feelings towards Magneto *cuddle*. It feels so good to have a eCommerce software like this. I´m in love!
Anyways, I was wondering how hard it is to use Magneto with a CMS like Expression Engine. I would love to use Expression Engine for everything not involved directly in eCommerce. However how can I manage to have the same user base with both installations, etc.?

Thanks,
Max

Hi Max,

I’ve not got an answer to your question specifically, but we (http://www.nublue.co.uk) are in the Expression Engine pro network and use it exclusively as our CMS for client projects. One client in particular would like to add eCommerce functionality to their website and we intend to tie Magento into the existing site (sharing the members database) to achieve this.

I would be happy to let you know how (if smile) we achieve this once it has been completed.

Cheers
Michael

you should probably ping the varien team for advice on the integration. I believe this site is powered by expression engine and they have magento integrated.

Hi Michael,

Just wondering if you have anything to report about integrating EE with Magento (or vice versa.)

Thanks!

Jared

I too am looking to use an existing user base (not EE though) in a Magento installation.  I think this type of feature is going to be pretty popular and it would be a good module to develop, if someone hasn’t already.  I anxiously await news on this and will continue digging as well…

I would like to add, the site claims that I should use Magento because:
“Integrating third-party solutions should never be a hassle. Magento’s easy integration will help save you time and resources as you create a customized store around your business needs.”

But I have searched all day and I haven’t been able to find documentation on how to integrate Magento with anything else or where to begin on developing an integration module.  Can anyone point me to where to begin?

Much appreciated,
Rich

would love to see an update on this as well if anyone has one. trying to architect a solution and seeing if a combo of magento/expression engine is the way to go, or a custom solution.

mainly looking to integrate the user logins.

thanks!

The updates ready and will be released soon. I hope it would be far more better than this with some advanced features.
