Having my WordPress blog only on 1 section of my website
I’ve been trying to understand how to do this and I just don’t see it. I’ve got my own website: http://www.contentwriter.com.au which is a normal HTML/CSS website that I maintain in Dreamweaver (nothing to do with WordPress).
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.
Well I do the same thing. My site is capitalactive.com my blog is capitalactive.wordpress.com but I forwarded blog.capitalactive.com to my blog also. You just go to the company that you gor your domain from. You could also do something like capitalactive.com/blog 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.
@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, blog.contenwriter.com.au, to your blog here and put a link to it on your website. You cannot, however, map a subdirectory (contentwriter.com.au/blog) 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 wordpress.com. Luckily I hadn’t really started any serious blogging yet…
