I am creating a new site and am using WP to power the news section of it (so that non html type people of the society can contribute to it etc).
At the moment I have set up WP in a folder called "news" in the public_html folder. There are various parts of the website, like contact, about etc, and a home page. It is on the home page that I would like to access the WP stuff just for a summary of the 5 most recent posts.
Using various template tags would be easiest if only they would work outside the WP folder news. Is there a way I can do that? Or do I have to write new code to access the MySQL database (would rather not faff that much).
