    I am wanting to set up an HTML page on my website with a PHP link to my blog. The difficult part of this is that I want the link n the external html page to say the newest headline. Is this even possible? If so, what functions do I need to call? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Easiest way to do this is still to pull in an rss feed, and style it.

    I know I sound like a total n00b to blogging because I am, but I can't find anything n the codex about pulling an RSS feed, and I can't seem to get the plugin on that link to work...

    another word for "pulling the RSS feed" is syndication or syndicating or syndicate. So search for that.

    Okay, I browsed over a couple of pages on syndication and noticed something about using blogreaders to get RSS feeds. After reading that I'm not sure if what I'm wanting to do is even possible.

    I want a link on my webpage that points toward my blog, and I've already done that. Now, I want my link to automatically update whenever I make a new post. I don't want the address to which my link points to change, but I want the text shown as a link to show the same as the headline of my latest post. Is there anyway to possibly do this?
