Web Proxy for Sitemason

The new beta Web Proxy tool (Web Proxy Tool icon) is turning out to be very useful. It allows you to pull HTML content from other sources into your website so that it will appear with inside your Sitemason template with your Sitemason navigation. This can very useful in two different situations.

  • Local PHP apps - Normally, if you have installed or written PHP content for your site, you have to duplicate your site’s look and navigation with your PHP app. Instead, you can do a minimal amount of formatting for your PHP app and let the web proxy tool serve out your PHP app, encapsulating it in your Sitemason website.
  • External websites - If you use a separate web service to handle a blog, an Amazon store, or other content for your website, you have three problems. The content doesn’t show up under your domain, it usually doesn’t match the look of your website, and it has entirely separate navigation. With the web proxy tool, Sitemason will grab the content from the external site on the fly and server it up as if it is a part of your website. Your content shows up inside your Sitemason template, using your Sitemason navigation, under your domain.
The Web Proxy tool is currently only available to Sitemason beta testers. To give it a try, contact support.
