Utterly stupid question (9 posts)

    I have a PHP script, but I have never worked with a website that ran on PHP, so I was wondering if it could be converted to WordPress?

    WordPress is built in PHP so there is a good chance it can be used with WordPress, but the description is so vague that it is hard to really say.

    I'm sorry if I was vague, but I don't know how to explain it. I have several websites that I'm using WordPress and I kind of know my way around it, (because it's simple) but this web script is php.
    If it will help, here is the demo site:

    You could try turning it into a plugin.

    It could be used, with a little tinkering... but it would probably be a lot easier to just use an existing weather plugin.

    The WP Wunderground plugin pulls from the same data source as that script.

    The only problem with a plugin, is everyone I've seen has a little box of data and it's for a sidebar widget. I was looking for a full page like the demo I posted earlier.

    This may seem a little simplistic, but have you tried to just create a custom page in your theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development#Custom_Page_Templates) then included the php script after the_content function?

    This would allow you to 'wrap' the script in WordPress.

    I have to tell you that if the remote control didn't have a button that said "On", I'd sit for hours trying to figure how to turn on the tv.
    What I'm trying to say is, I have no idea how to code, change code or add code or anything like it. I know it's sad, but there's people like me out there.

    Then you may have to consider hiring someone. Try http://codepoet.com/ or http://jobs.wordpress.net/
