    We have a client with an already well established conventional (windows server website) who wants to add a blog. Because of the current design, he wants to put the full blog on a separate page and have just an excerpt of the latest comment appear on the websites current (non WP)home page. Can this be done?

    yup. Install WP to its own directory/subdomain. It will ive there with no problem.

    Use these methods to pull whatever you want and display on the existing webpage (caveat: it will only work if the non WP page is a .php page. The method will not work on .html pages. Usually, you can just change the .html extension to .php with no ill effect.....thats how I did it....index.html to index.php then used .htaccess to automatically load index.php)

    I set-up my WP E-Commerce website...at http://www.brookndellvirtualvillage.com/. I also set-up another wp blog http://www.inthemomentwithadele.com/. Both are hosted by Bluehost and brookndell is the main and inthemoment is secondary.

    I want to be able to connect the blog to brookndell website and be identified as a separate page. I asked blue host and they said I had to ask someone in the wp forum.
