We'd like to be able to setup our own blogging platform alongside our Shopify site, and serve it from a sub-directory for SEO purposes. This would require a reverse proxy (most likely Nginx) to accomplish. I've seen a handful of similar requests in this forum, and the response is frequently that it isn't recommended, and would (may?) trigger the bot detection stuff.
Is this still the case? Or is there now a path to accomplish this? If not, is there any work underway / timeline for when it would be possible?
It seems that it would be fairly useful to be able to seamlessly leverage multiple platforms in addition to Shopify within a site, and it does seem to be something people have run into before.
@MeganD_94 you behave like a scam. You put link that looks like a link to https://experts.shopify.com , but it actually lead to a page of exact partner. I reported your comment and will definitely not using services of w3trends agency.
Also your comment is useless because you don't answer the question.
@kgurungI was able to setup AWS CloudFront to work like a reverse proxy, similar to the guide here:
The idea being that CloudFront will distribute the requests from a large enough pool of servers that it won't trigger bot detection. If you're not using AWS, I assume it might be possible to configure another CDN similarly... It did require a little massaging to get things working correctly, so allow a little time to troubleshoot if you go this route.
