It’s absolutely unholy. .NET Standard with a WordPress front end!? Yes, it’s possible. This odd concoction happened when the front-end developer hired claimed he could consume/operate his design around any language, but actually could only produce WordPress websites. My solution was to use a .NET Core API on top of our product database (MSSQL) and then write my own PHP WordPress Plugin that would list products by product line and then another plugin to display the products clicked in that product line. All products are maintained in another .NET Core app that allows for the products to be centralized in one spot while the front end design can be just about anything.
To walk through how I did this, I’ll start with the creation of the .NET Core API.
