    Hi there. I want to use my WP blog as a comment on my website and I want it to have my website template. Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    One thing I should say, I'm new to this so please be patient and speak very slow. LOL!!!

    All of your template files are kept in the folder:

    wp-content/themes/default (if its a fresh install)

    copy it to a new folder like wp-content/themes/yourtheme

    and start editing the html - the files in there are just like your website code but with two important differences

    1. they're split up into different files like header.php, index.php, footer.php and
    2. they're littered with PHP template tags like the_title(); (which shows the title of the post.

    I'm sure there's a page that details this somewhere.

    Thanks for the help. I've created my theme, now how do I get it into the theme editor? Do I have to upload something?
