    Hi All,

    Im pretty new to wordpress and have come across something that i just cant find the answer to...

    I have integrated a blog/news sections into a site i am building and it took a while to get it on the website but it's on now and working pretty well.

    The thing is i simply installed the wordpress blog into a sub directory called news but i really want to display my latest post on the actual homepage of the website.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    thanks

    Craig

    My advise would be to run the whole site from WordPress & set the home page to display latest posts in the admin section.

    If you set your home page as a WordPress page, then you can modify the front-page.php template to display your home page content and the latest post.

    Thanks guys your tips helped alot, i have managed to sort this now.
    I added this above everything in the homepage…

    <?php /* Short and sweet */ define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false); require(‘news/wp-blog-header.php’); ?>

    and then this where i wanted the post to display…

    <?php query_posts(‘showposts=1’); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <?php getImage(‘1’); ?>
    <?PHP THE_TITLE(); ?>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    read more <?php endwhile;?>

    this works great.
