Integrating Word Press into my site (3 posts)

    I have a site, http://www.lonniebruhn.com. This site not a blogging site, I am a comedian. I write rants and other updates to my site. I also have a collection of journals and I would like to be able to integrate WP into my current site seamlessly. My site is structured in frames, top, left and content. In the content area, I use a layer to hold my text in. Here’s what I’d like to do

    Since the beginning of my site I’ve had to hardcode all my updates. I would like to be able to add my updates via a remote for when I’m on the road, also adding pictures from time to time, all within the same design layout I already have. I’d like to also the same thing with my journals and schedule and have these things archived and give permissions to other authoress to journal and archive there stuff while leave the remaining site in tact.

    Is this possible to do with WP or any other Blogging software or script? I recently installed Mambo but although perfect in so many ways, I believe that it is more for site wide control and not something that I can use within an area of the site.

    If anyone can help that would be great.

    Go ahead and take a look at my site to get an idea of what I’m talking about.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Should work fine in WP. You should get one of the gallery plugins for image uploading. I used to run a multiauthor site in WP without problems. You only have to create the accounts and give them different rights - based on user levels.

    Invariably, you are going to be pointed to the codex, and the Loop, so I'll commence with the action
    http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop
    In practical terms, you will design a template using the language of the loop, displaying any and all info you want to go within your frame. You can strip down the index.php template, or create your own. A recent discussion in this thread resulted in a user putting together a simple theme for the sole purpose of using within a frames, or specifically an iframe.

    Also note, that some will chime in about the "evils" of frames concerning search engines, but I'll leave that to others, or for your own investigations.
