Help with integrating a WordPress blog into an existing site (4 posts)

    I have a site - http://www.trans-americas.com - and I am looking to take one of my existing sections (pages) and making it a WordPress blog. I have WordPress 2.2 installed on my server, but now I'm a bit overwhelmed by integrating it into the site with my existing site design. I am not a coder, the site was designed/coded by someone else, I am only capable of basic changes in Dreamweaver.

    Looking through the WordPress documentation it discusses adding a header, changing color.... I'm not sure how that will integrate it with a seemless look with my existing (CSS based) site. Is it possible to 'drop' WordPress into an existing, already designed and integrated page? If so is there a somewhat accessible tutorial out there to help guide me through the steps.

    Thanks

    thats too ambiguous of a question to adequately answer.

    'tutorials': http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates

    If you are only capable of basic changes you are either going to have to read, and experiment, or perhaps enlist paid help.

    Create a subdirectory or subdomain for your WP blog. I looked at your design which is quite nice and looks easy enough to fit to WP. The documentation user whooami provided is an excellent start.

    You basically need to break your existing design into four pieces, header, main content, sidebar and footer.

    CAn't this be done by dropping the WP blog into a Frameset on your website?
