I'm trying to set up WordPress inside a site that I've alreay built. I want to use it for more of a site updates and random "what's new" section with the main WP page as something other than "index.php". For instance, calling it "news.php". If I try to set it up in its own directory, it ignores the rest of my site (not to mention, it looks nothing like the rest of the site ... ).
Is there a way to integrate WordPress into my site without having to remake the site in WordPress? I do use calls to other db to populate info on the site.
