I have a WP powered site, hosted on a shared server. The WP site feeds a mobile app which has it's own menu for navigation. At present I have the PB forum hosted on a subdomain; which opens in a new window when customer selects "forum" menu item on my website. Not ideal CX, but good enough for right now. The app has its own menu for navigation, which bypasses the need to open a new browser window for the PB site.
As the WP site is hosted on a shared server, my team is not inclined to use the WP plugin as not all sites on the server require it. We are considering migrating the site to a new server to unlock the WP plugin integration; for which we are doing a swag on site migration (time/cost/KTLO).
However... there are other ways to integrate, and I'd like to pose this question to the community..
Given the circumstances above, which path would you recommend and why?
A) Java embed
B) WP Widget
