Embed in Other Site via Javascript?

  1. Hello! I have been using WordPress for a while, but I've recently decided I'd like a more customized theme, which I seem to have trouble doing with Sandbox. I have also been evaluating Tumblr (which, if anyone in power at WP.com is reading, offers CSS and Domain mapping for free—a little tempting). They have a neat little JavaScript that can be included on a page to yield something like I did in about 5 minutes on a template personal website: http://web.me.com/codydh/blog.html . I imagine it is possible to do this with PHP, but does WP.com offer (or is there anything that can be used) to do something similar with WP?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is codydehaan.com.

    We cannot use javascript on wordpress.com blogs. the software strips the code to preserve security on this multiuser blogging platform. We access and cannot edit the PHP in our templates >

    No I'm afraid there isn't. However, this can be done on a free software install from wordpress.org. >

  3. Thanks for the input timethief! The thing is, I'm not asking about hosting JavaScript or PHP on WordPress—rather, I am asking if there is some sort of javascript or PHP that can be done on an EXTERNAL site to grab posts from WP.com and display them elsewhere.

  4. Understood now. I don't have an answer for you, hopefully either another Volunteer or Staff member will have one.

  5. I do know that all wordpress.com blogs do have RSS feeds and external site that are equipped to do so can use RSS feeds to display your wordpress.com posts.
