    Okay, so i have tried to do this myself but I can't seem to figure it out.

    My web site: http://www.thetvaddict.com

    there is text at the bottom. I'd like that to be my wordpress blog.
    is there a really easy way to do this. an easy piece of code or something to just insert?
    I've tried to look at a few tutorials but i can't figure it out. i'm clearly a moron, or just really frustrated!

    You could simply include The_Loop in that space.

    Did you see this tutorial?

    wow, thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction moshu. I wish I found this last week. I have so far integrated the blog into my site. My only concerns are twofold. you can check it out at http://www.thetvaddict.com

    1) the site seems very slow to load.

    2) the links don't seem to work - comments and the title links just get 404 errors!

    any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    tried your site and it actually it loaded pretty fast - tried to leave a comment and click around but nothing works.

    do not really know the cause - just wanted to confirm.

    thanks for the kind words... yeah, no idea why the comments don't work. hopefully someone has a tip on that.

    Glad it worked :)

    I wish I found this last week.
    You should have asked last week "where is moshu's integrating tutorial?"

    Now the next step - if you want - to make the blog to look like your site ;) What happens now it is described in tutorial:
    "b) You will notice that clicking on the posts' titles and "Comments" links it will take you to your blog at example.com/blog - displaying it with the Default (Kubrick) theme."

    Dear Moshu,

    I did read that. Yes, I can remove comments.. but I wanted comments (hoping that folks will actually read and comment on the site!) So is there a way to do this WITH comments?

    Sure. As I said above: "next step" - making a theme that looks like your main page.

    If you have already a working "skeleton" of a valid (x)html webpage, it's not that difficult to put in the WP template tags.

    Here is a good explanation of the basic template(s):

    And I also have a "visual anatomy" about the template files building up a theme:

    Finally, there is the Codex, our online manual:
    Blog_Design_and_Layout

    Why did you change the divs into spans? (That's why; and causing a lot of validation errors - besides the ones that already exists in your original code: cehck it out)

    moshu, i put the spans back to divs. Is there an easier way to use my own template. While I read through your links and somewhat understand them. the whole process seems quite complex - and clearly i'm not a programmer!

    You must be very young if you still believe in "easy ways"... No, there never is an easy way, sorry.

    I'm doing this as a business (making themes that match the client's existing site) - and it's not easy. But rewarding :)

    Edit. And I am not a programmer either. Just a wanderer linguist.

    I am interested in integrating wordpress into my existing site at journeypage.com so that all members would automatically have there own journal. Do you know of any resources on how to do this?

    I work with a web development team in India, but I want to have a better understanding of the feasibility before sending them specifications.

    WP doesn't have multiblog feature. You may want to check out its "cousin" the WP MU (=multi user).
    http://mu.wordpress.org

    (they have their own forum, so it is not supported here)

    And, please, don't double and triple post the same question! It will be deleted.
