Adding a Blog to an existing web site (6 posts)

    Hi all. I searched and searched but couldn't find this topic. Friends of mine want me to help them install WordPress on their website http://www.creativityinlife.com

    The idea being that the home page would be the blog then the existing .index page would be renamed .home or something like that. I want to keep the current design but use the main area to display the blog information. Can this be done? and how?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Sure. You would want to look into creating a theme based on your current design. It will take some time to recreate, but it can be done. I'm in the process of doing the same.

    I need help doing this as well; adding a blog to an existing site - I don't see anything on those two links above that helps. Anybody else got any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Not sure if this is what you mean. I just took some template tags and entered them into my site template. http://scadesigns.com/wordpress/
