    I have a new client who wants me to design a new web site for him but wants to integrate WP blog into the site. How do I do this? He's already a member.

    A member of what?

    Well, if you do paid work for clients - just subcontract the job to someone knowledgeable if you are not able to do it.
    It's a shame to ask for free help here if you are paid for it. Work for that money: read the documentation.

    Thanks for your kind words but if there was a phone number on this site I wouldn't have to ask this very simple question.

    Have a great weekend!

Even though WordPress is free and open source, there are literally hundreds of volunteers eager to help you. Here are some helpful resources for WordPress:
    • FAQ

    • Using the Support Forums (HAHAHAHAHA!)
    • WordPress Forum

    There is no phone number because this is an open source free software made by volunteers, so there are no paid "customer support employees" behind it.

    Also, the support forums are run entirely by unpaid volunteers who help end-users in their free time.

    If you want paid support submit your request to the wp-pro mailing list:
    http://lists.automattic.com/mailman/listinfo/wp-pro
    or to

    Go here: wordpress.org/download. If your host doesn't offer 1 click install using cpanel or whatever then go here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    After installation go to the file where you installed it and login in to back end. You can also download themes here: http://themes.wordpress.net/

    Good thing is it's a pretty easy process :-)

    Thank you matwolf, this was all I was asking for. This is/was my first time using this site and I didn't know where to begin!

    I truly appreciate your help!

    Could someone please tell me what exactly the "name of the database" "MySQL username" and "password" is?!

    I know nothing about computers or the internet and am only doing this for a school project. I don't know if I'm supposed to put the name of where I host my website or a word press host? If someone could explain these in simple terms thanks!

    @fortinsvisit: This really should be in a seperate post.

    You need a database server, if you don't have one talk to the person providing your hosting and ask them.
