Having my WordPress blog only on 1 section of my website

  1. contentwritermicky

    I've been trying to understand how to do this and I just don't see it. I've got my own website: which is a normal HTML/CSS website that I maintain in Dreamweaver (nothing to do with WordPress).

    I also have a WordPress blog at that I would rather run on my own domain, e.g. as:

    I have already changed my hosting package from economy to business to enable PHP which is apparently necessary for WordPress.

    In the WordPress Help & FAQ sections, all I can find is how to "map your domain to wordpress", which is not what I want to do because I don't want my entire website to point to WordPress, I want my WordPress blog incorporated into my website.

    HELP! anyone?

  2. What you want IS to map a domain to your WordPress blog, but a SUBdomain instead. You can't have, but you CAN have http://blog/ from what I understand.

  3. Well I do the same thing. My site is my blog is but I forwarded to my blog also. You just go to the company that you gor your domain from. You could also do something like by putting an index file there that opens your blog in a frame, or you could use a meta refresh tag. So many options for ya.

  4. @contentwritermicky - you upgraded your hosting package for php - sounds like you intended to install the WP software in that /blog subdirectory on your site. You can do that but it is a question more appropriately answered in the http://wordpress.ORG/support/ forums

    However, if you want to keep your blog here, you can map a subdomain, ie,, to your blog here and put a link to it on your website. You cannot, however, map a subdirectory ( so you would need to change your structure for that option.

    Others have included their blogs in a frame, as capitalactive suggests, but I don't know how it is accomplished.

    Thanks all for your suggestions. Vivian was right - it's the wordpress ORG software I needed. Silly me. I've now got it installed on my website but have to put in some time to customize it in order to integrate it better with my website's look & feel.

    And I'll have to think about what I'll do with my contentwritermicky blog on Luckily I hadn't really started any serious blogging yet...

    Thanks again.
