    Wordpress, can't it be included in a site

    Is wordpress stand alone? Don't know if that's the best description to use but can you include it inside of your website?

    Like this:

    Where you have your site left/top and right template but the blogging system in the centre? did that make any sense?


    Thanks.

    Of coarse you can include it in your site. Wordpress is very customizable. Search for a few tutorials of buy a book on amazon.

    Yes, this is possible. Just need to create the theme to match your site.

    Well in depends of the wordpress theme... but it can be definitely integrated in a web page. And you can do the blog to look like regular website.

    I'm hoping to do just this. I assume that the wordpress page is just like another webpage to link to? So you just integrate it in and make it seamless through design. If I'm wrong please let me know before I blow a bunch of time hitting my head against a wall.

    But I see no reason why it couldn't work.

    The Wordpress template is simple to understand. Even a beginner PHP coder should be able to modify and/or create a custom theme in a couple of hours.

    The idea is to create an identical theme/template to your existing site and then just link to it to integrate it to the site. This is easy but not as simple to understand at first. WP has a very good theme setup that makes it easy to work with. One tip is to start with an existing theme that has the same basic structure that you want and adapt it, this will save time.

    Wordpress is both standalone and integratable. You can either create a template identical to yours, or, with the knowledge of php, custom code an entire site to be powered by wordpress running as a cms. OR, build your own cms (what I like to do)...
