    No. Not with .shtml.

    If you want to display the blog entries on another page - that file has to be a .php files, at least for the methods that I am aware of.

    Can I add a script inside a frame within my html page by chance ?

    Probably. Don't ask me how - frames are bad, so I don't use them.
    In a frame the blog will be displayed with the theme you have active on it in the middle of your whatever page with a totally different design.

    Wouldn't you be able to achieve what you are looking for by pulling from the blog's RSS feed?

    mmm. Frames=bad. Google for "displaying rss feed in html".

    Yes, you can do it with an iframe or something similar, but it's not an optimal solution if you take useability/accesibillity/... into account.

    Is the .shtml generated by something? Else it shouldn't be too hard to convert it to .php.

    Here you find 'rss to html converter' scripts. You don't have to use frames.

    Carp script is workign great. easy to install. Now if I can find a way to separate the blog entries instead of them being all bunched up together. Any suggestions?
