I've got a news and video site which I've integrated WordPress into. WordPress is in a 'news/' subfolder, while videos (using my own custom video management system) are under 'videos/'. The sections draw from the same set of global templates and integrate really well.
I'm trying to make a new front page for the site as a jumping off point, and for it I'd like to inlude top news from the WordPress section. Problem is, this would be called from *outside* the WordPress installation folder.
Is there any way to poll WordPress for article info which I can use from within another PHP file without loading the entire app?
