    Is there any plugin which enables me to put posts from my blog onto my webpage? And whereby as the blog gets updated (Old posts disappear into archive and new posts appear), the webpage also gets updated?

    If there is such a plugin, could someone please point it out to me? If there isn't, then might I request that someone please make one?

    Thank you so much

    Will probably help with a lot of different options including plugins.

    Hi. I tried that out but it doesn't seem to work - Keeps showing parse errors. I also tried out another static page plugin for Word Press but it also gives errors. Is there any working plugin?

  4. Keeps showing parse errors.

    Well then post the errors so we can help fix your bad code. :)

    One good method is using something like CG-FeedRead to pull from your blog's RSS feed to put titles & excerpts on your other site page... I've used that and helped others use it many times.

    I am trying to do the same thing, can we get some help figuring out which is going to be the easiest to impliment and how? I have looked for code, but it is never just put it in and rock and roll. Myself, I am still looking for a good primer to figure out the whole php thing. Any help would be appriciated!

    Usually "the same thing" is different for every user :)
    Why don't you try to give as many details as possible about what you'd like to do?
    Do you have a website and want to show posts (recent posts' excerpt?) on it? Is it a html file or php file?
    Do you want to create an entry/splash/main page to show the posts? Or...?
    As for starters you could take a look at my tutorial:

    Moshu,
    Here is what I am trying to do I have the blog installed and running the index.php in the blog.trentstrek.com, and I have copied that file into the http://www.trentstrek.com directory in order to keep the same structure as the blog. I edited the loop to only include one post, and I believe I did a get_post('trents_update'), but that does not update to the latest post on that homepage. So what I want to see it the latest update on that http://www.trentstrek.com and when you want to get to the blog you can click on a blog like on the right or something. I just want to get the homepage for that domain working correctly I think I can figure out the menu on the right. Is there a function that will pull the latest date from the database and display that post? I have been looking for an answer for this for like 3 days, its driving me nuts let along, I think my eyesite is failing from starting at the puter screen for so long. hehe Thanks

    Clint, to be honest, I don't see any "integration" issue in what you are trying to do. Integration would mean you have an existing website at example.com and you want some blog entries from example.com/blog to appear in the design/layout of your existing site.
    What you've described above is simply a matter of "WP files and blog in different directories". See this tutorial:
    http://wordpress.org/docs/installation/different-address/
    Hope this helps. If you have further questions, please post back.

    I am such a moron, I can just change the number of posts shown in WP admin to 1 and copy and paste the index.php from wp directory into the root directory and viola, it will auto update, and then I can change the wp admin for posts shown back to 5. Thanks for showing me the light.
