    I can't find a clear answer on this. I followed the tutorial here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Integrating_WordPress_with_Your_Website

    and just have a basic blog integrated. Do I need full wordpress theme support to take advantage of widgets? I've done full themes for WordPress in the past, so I know I can do it, I just don't really want to, I'd rather just shove a snippet of code in there and have widgets working. The problem is that since I'm not using a theme, I have no functions.php to reference.

    WordPress, y u no clear to me?

    I don't know for sure but I think you need need themes active. Otherwise, how can you access the relevant dynamic_sidebar?

    What about using something very plain with minimal styling - like http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/veryplaintxt - and then carrying out all the real styling on the main site?
