    Hi,

    I have a website and I would like to start using WP. How can I proceed to add WP to my website without changing everything?

    Thank you

    Try installing WordPress in a sub-folder?

    Hi Esmi,

    I downloaded WP and put it as a sub folder in my website folder. I am not sure what to do to integrate WP to my web page. Is there something I have to add for example to my index.html?

    Many thanks

    I am a slow learner so if you have a nice link that could explain me step by step how to proceed, please let me know.

    Thank you

    Thank you,

    Do I need to add this at the beginning of each page?
    <?php
    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    Yes - changing the relative path to wp-blog-header.php to suit your WP install.

    Yes. It should be in the body of the page IIRC.
