Hello and TYIA~
I am using the Focus theme as a CMS / frontend for a webapp. My goal is to have users subscribe to the app through WordPress then be re-directed to our Django webapp on a different site. Obviously I only want subscriber to be able to access the Django app, ideally, I would only want the users to log in once (to WordPress).
Would is be possible to hide a page in wordpress that redirects them to them other site and have the other site only accept connections from the original WordPress URL? I guess they would still have to log into the webapp, but i am more concerned about payment authentication…Only users of a certain subscription level would be able to access the referring page…
Am I making sense?

In regard to this statement:
Would is be possible to hide a page in wordpress that redirects them to them other site
Yes, you can if you are using Genesis, there are redirect settings on the page and you can exclude the page from visibility and search engines. This is located in Genesis SEO settings.
Which end accepts the payment though?

Hi, Thank you for the response…
I would love it if WP accepts the payment, I am trying to take it easy on my Django developer…
I would want our subscribers to pay us through WP (Paypal or other gateway) then be authenticated to go to the Django webapp.

What type of “app” are you referring to? Are you talking about a mobile app? You say “subscribe to the app” and “redirect to our Django app” – what are they?

The App is a Webapp we are offering for a subscription. It lives on a linode server (different server than my WordPress site) and it is accessible from any device. I have a subdomain set up to point to the app http://www.subdomain.domain.com. I would like that subdomain to be accessible ONLY by people who have paid the subscription fee on WordPress.
I hope this is more clear…

Well, how Studiopress used to do it is – they used eJunkie.com. We purchased a theme via the website and then it went to PayPal for the payment to be made. Once the payment was made there was a URL that we returned back to. Their URL pointed back to the website where there was a message that the payment was made and the link to the theme would be in our email.
So… looking at what you want, the person comes to your WP site, makes the purchase (say PayPal), you enter the URL for where they need to go next (subdomain.domain.com) where they will in turn download their app.
Does that make sense?

Unfortunately, ours isn’t a download, it is a site the user would need to log into I was hoping to authenticate through WordPress and then have django check the authentication (somehow) THEN let the user through.
BTW, THANK YOU for you help!

You should check with the Django application to see if has any shared services, api’s, etc., that will work with WordPress. I Googled Django & WordPress for you here. Take a read at this. This is going to be something that needs more programming experience than what is provided here.
