Integrate Sales Igniter Magento 2 With Existing Website (WordPress, Wix, etc.)

First off – if you don’t already have a website it’s best to just let Magento 2 / Sales Igniter Rental Booking System run your complete website. It can replace your existing website and run both your rental bookings, admin panel, and customer side website content. There is a good content management system built-in to the admin panel. If you have a lot of website content (30+ pages) there is a good way to run WordPress with Magento, please see the WordPress sub-title below.

We realize this is not always an option though to just run Sales Igniter. There are different methods for integrating the rental booking software to other websites like Weebly, Squarespace, etc.

Framing

This method would be making an iframe (like a window port) that shows your rental booking website on another website. You will first need to go to system > config > security > allow magento frontend to run in frame and set it to yes. If your current website already has navigation you will likely want to disable the navigation on your Magento design template. It is beyond the scope of this page to explain how to use layouts to do so, but a developer should be able to do so quickly and easily. After that it’s just a matter of adding the html iframe tag to the part of the page where you want the rental booking website to show.

Linking

This method is very simple. You just add a Rent Now button to the page that has an a href link to your rental booking website product page.

Run As Sub-Domain

This method means that your current website would stay as it is. You then link from your current website with a button or link “Visit our Rental Store” or something along those lines and your rental system runs from something like rentals.yourdomain.com so nothing on your current website is affected really, everything stays as is. You can host the sub-domain with the rental software on a different web host (like our web hosting) if you want to if your current web host is not good for Magento.

WordPress

One method is just keeping your WordPress website separate from Magento 2. WordPress does fine for managing all your site pages so especially if you have a lot of SEO done on your WordPress site and lots of content, this is a good method. You can link from your WordPress website menu like “Online Store” or “Online Rentals” and it links to your Magento 2 website. We recommend trying to keep the menus and theme of the 2 websites looking very similar so as not to confuse your website visitors. 

If you want WordPress to take on the design of your Magento 2 website so the 2 themes are the same, you can use this extension: FishPig WordPress Magento Integration. You will still have 2 separate admin panels – one for WordPress and one for Magento 2. This method can be a bit more complex than the first one of keeping them separate.
