Pardon my Stupidity!

  1. midsummersmusicfestival


    I'm not sure I'm speaking the right language for what I want, which is to embed my WordPress blog into my website.

    First, can it be done?

    Second, if it can be done where and what do I look for?

    Third, I do know basic HTML so I'm not totally stupid about this stuff. I've just never done this before.

    Last, it has to be free!

    The blog I need help with is

  2. First, we can't answer any questions without a link to your blog, starting with http. If you don't have a blog already, you probably want to get the software from WordPress.ORG instead and install it right into your website.

  4. Make a html frame and in the part where you put the address put your wordpress blog. Look up embedded frames if you don't know already.

  5. Using iframes to embed a wordpress.COM blog in another website have been problematic in the past. Why not just display an RSS feed of the blog in a page on the website? Here are a couple links that talk about how to do that.

  6. Duplicating material, even if it's your own, will hurt you with search engine rankings. It's probably a better idea from that perspective to simply LINK to the blog as if it were a regular page of your website.

  7. Frames don't duplicate the material, merely show a webpage INSIDE a webpage.

    But if they're problematic...

  8. The search engines don't care if it is in a frame or not. As far as they are concerned, it is duplicate content.

    You can give an iframe a try, just don't try to edit your blog from within the iframe as that is absolutely a sure way to have issues.

  9. If you want to use blog (the link you have supplied) as the companion blog of your website then you should add a link. Else if you want blog to work as your website then i think the domain mapping feature would be the best.
