    Question Embed Blog into Existing Web Site

    Is there a blog that I could embed into my current design. I really like my current design at planetsteelers.com and I don't want to change it, but I want to add a blog to the front page.

    Does anyone have suggestions on blog software that I can use?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    IMO, wordpress it the safest choice - plenty of add-ons to customise the blog according to your need.

    Cheers

    Do I have to create a theme from scratch or can I embed wordpress into my existing site design?

    Wordpress is the best blog software, you can do any thing with the wordpress blog. Do you want a blog under your home page or under some other category, like planetsteelers.com/blog? In both the cases you can change your design as per your need.

    You need to create a theme from scratch based on the HTML of your existing site design.

    It is very easy, but you should think that this way: is it possible that my current design can be implemented into a blog theme?

    The answer is: yes it is and it is easy. If you need help with it I would like it to help you.

    It is possible to find a theme that is similar to your existing one and tweak it to look the same.

    I think it would be a lot easier to start from scratch. There aren't many themes around which use nested tables like that to base it on.
