    Blogging Software for Corporate Website

    Hello,

    My company would like to have a blog that "resides within our website." In other words, I don't want the blog to be loaded into another page or link. We want it to have our site's look and feel wrap around it.

    If anyone has had success with a particular blog software I'd really like to know about it.

    Hope that made sense :-)

    Thank you!

    M

    You might want to look into a CMS system like Joomla. I think that you can embed it in an already existing site quite easily.

    We need more information to answer your question accurately.

    WordPress is generally considiered the best blogging software, and you can you use it to power most 'non-blog' sites too. However if you want to do something a little off-base or you require a complicated user permission system then a different CMS may be more suitable.

    You make WordPress look like anything you want and you place it any URL you like.

    The easiest way to deal with this is to power your entire site with WordPress. However that depends if you need any functionality which WordPress isn't capable of.

    If you just have a basic static site, then you may as well just run the whole thing from WordPress, that way you only have to maintain one system, not two.

    You are right. If you think to start blog then Wordpress is the best option.

    No.

    There are many options, of which WordPress is usually the most suitable. However there are many instances in which a more advanced CMS system (Drupal etc.) would be more appropriate, or even a custom solution.

    You can talk with a webdesign agency to do this for you. If your webpage design is already made they can implement the desing in wordpress within one day or two. You can see zaragoo.ro, cartepremium.ro or aiesecconstanta.ro/bs to see some blogs integrated in the site design. You can't say that it's a blog, the design is just like the site.
    Good luck!

    You can always implement WordPress to "resides within your website". Have someone design the template and you are up and running in no time.

    For your question: Blogging Software for Corporate Website???


    If in my opinion, I recommend "Wordpress CMS" install to your server.


    the structure is prompt for use and support standard S.E.O. and more useful


    For me The Wordpress is a last question!

    I also would install Wordpress in either a directory /blog/ or subdirectory http://blog.yourdomain.com

    But it would also depend on your hosting type. Do you have PHP amd MySQL installed?

    Wordpress and Movabletype are the first two that come to my mind. I believe Movabletype have upgrades available at an additional cost, but it may be worth checking out.
