Can I integrate a wordpress blog into a wordpress website? (2 posts)

    Hi

    I have a wordpress website which has customised theme, created by a company on my behalf.
    I have added a blog page onto the site but I really do not like the appearance. As you will see, it is basically just text and includes a header of the date of when it was added etc, which looks messy

    How do I make this look like a professional blog? I have built a blog before in another programme but don't find wordpress very user friendly. I want it to be part of my website which is the only reason I am using wordpress for it.

    Is there a way I can build a blog on a wordpress template (so it looks like a website rather than just a page of text) and then incorporate it as part of my webpate?

    I am getting very frustrated with what should be simple task but nothing seems that straightforward in wordpress!

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like the company you hired to create your custom theme did not include any special styling for Posts - perhaps because this wasn't part of the project brief that you supplied to them. As this is a custom theme, we can only offer limited help here, so you really only have three options:

    1. Learn now to develop the templates that you want for your Post pages. This will involve some knowledge of PHP, HML & CSS.

    2. Go back to the theme's developers and employ them to develop the theme further.

    3. Hire someone else to do the work for you.
