Here is my situation.
I'm in the process of implementing Drupal as the primary CMS for a large site with hundreds of pages. But until the data input into Drupal can be done (which will be an ongoing process over months), I'd like the older "non-drupal" pages to at least be faked into looking like they are part of the same site. Basically I just want to tack onto the old pages, the new drupal header and footer (which are independent regions).
I was wondering if there is a known way to show a region from your drupal site on a regular php page? Such as a simple drupal "region rendering function" or something?
ps. The navigation has dropdown menus so iframes are out of the question.
Any constructive insight into how I should approach this would be helpful. Thanks.
