View Full Version : How do I intergrate a blog in current site?
02-09-2007, 10:02 AM
I have a few questions about blogging.
I know the importance of it. I know how to creat one.
But how do I integrate it into the existing site so that it counts as fresh content? How do I "get the blog on my site" when my hosting company doesn't provide blogs?
Do I create it and then frame it into the site? Will it count then? Do I create it and provide a link that opens in a new window?
Do I have this concept right?
Any help is definately appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

Frames won't count content on your site. The only way to add it to your current site is the install it as part of your site or may be create it somewhere else and then take the RSS feed and incorporate that on your site (hope that is allowed).
Best is switch to another provider as almost everyone provides blog software now!

The hosting company may not provide blogs but if your host provides PHP + MySQL and you have FTP access to your account then you can probably run http://wordpress.org/ that would then allow you to have the blog at www.yoursite.com/blog/
You could then pull information to the home page through custom code or RSS.
If your host won't even support installing wordpress, find another host there's loads of good ones out there.

Just get yourself a mysql database through your host provider and get all the login details. Then head to wordpress, download the blog software, unzip and upload it to your server in a new directory called "blog", then theres a few files within which you'll need to edit (very simple), then add a link to it in your navigation and youre away!
It's really easy: Installing wordpress wordpress Codex (http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_wordpress)

Yes, i installed my WP blog on domain.com/news/ all I did was download Wordpress to my PC, create a folder in public_html and named it "news" then uploaded Wp to it.
I then went to the dashboard in WP and configured it, I made the following changes: for posts change the permalink to "custom" then in the title include some keywords ;) this will be picked up with the Search engines.
Then I installed xml sitemap (this can be found when you search the wp plugin database) You upload it to news folder tells you in the installation instructions, then everytime you update your blog, it pings the Search engines to say "new content".

create your blog in as sub domain then display the rss feed of your blog in your site or sidebar.
