How to use Wordpress plug-ins on a normal HTML site?

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by some123, Oct 3, 2010.

    Can someone please help me with this problem?
    SEMrush
    I have a normal html website (all written in html).
    However I saw a very attractive wordpress plugin that I wanted to integrate for my site.

    I have installed wordpress on my hosting account , and I have installed the plugin.

    By this I mean that the wordpress folder is on the server where the actual website is.
    However the website is just a normal html website.

    This is the plugin i want to use:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-reportpost/installation/

    and I want to use it EXACTLY like it is on this page:
    http://tvatnet.com/24-s04e4-day-4-1000-am-1100-am.html

    (click on: [!!] Problem Viewing The Show ? Report it Here ).

    I was wondering that because I have wordpress on my site, but non of my actual webpages are made with wordpress, is it possible to use wordpress plugins with a php include or something?

    If someone can get this working for me I'll send you $5 via paypal.
    If anyone knows of any alternatives which I can use for a post reporting system which operates in a similar fashion as the one found in the example above, I will pay for that also.

    It is not possible to use a wordpress plug ins in a non-wordpress site, unless the creator has provide it

    Meanwhile, why don't you just use wordpress for your site, so you can use that plugin ?

    This is pretty simple. It's a hidden form that just opens.

    well I have already designed a huge site so reformatting it in wordpress isn't a possibility.
    However, is there any other alternatives for me?

    The plugin is designed and operated very smooth which is why it is so attractive for me

    (on this page:
    http://tvatnet.com/24-s04e4-day-4-1000-am-1100-am.html
    right below the video)

    I am open to pay if someone can design something very similar to the reporting system found on the above page.

    in addition to that it also does not make the user leave the page after they submitted what they typed, so it operates very smoothly.
    Does anyone know of any alternatives/ would they be open to designing me something if I pay?

    I can do the HTML part, the PHP part is yours then (sending the mail).

    I would only do the DIV for the effect. But you could also do a nice modal window that shows the form.

    Oh, I forgot to say that I would not do any tables... CSS only

    Well in theory you can always rip out the code out of wordpress and allow it to work in another environment. But that's not practical in this case since the effect you are looking for is very simple.

    Here is the closest thing I can find to the effect you posted:

    The only thing that's left is to fill in the box with the desired content.

    I actually have the php of a form that can do this, except I do not know how to code in php so a page would just refresh when the form is submited.
    it has a line on it
    saying:
    $redirectURL = "/index.html";

    what should I do so instead of it redirecting to another page, all it does is submit the form without even leaving the page, as if the person clicked on a hyperlink "#"
    Or what should I do so it redirects to the same page it is on?

    That depends on the script and its capabilities. You could try leaving the $redirectURL variable blank, so it doesn't redirect, but there is no guarantee this will work.

    It's a little bit complicated, I think it would be easier to convert the site to wordpress unless you're a php expert and can modify it on your own but I don't think this would be the case since you're asking for help.

    Good luck mate!
