I'm trying to modify WordPress so I can use it as a CMS for my website http://www.nooryouthonline.com. At the moment I use Cutenews but its not very secure and user-friendly.
Reading around Codex, it seems the most popular way to set up a CMS is to make the whole layout in WordPress, setting a page as 'home', editing templates, creating new themes and that sort of thing.
I already have a layout designed using xHTML and CSS so I would prefer to just include the content from posts and pages that I make in WordPress. I have installed WordPress in a folder called /wp in the root directory, but I cannot find away of using a simple PHP include function to call content from published posts and pages into a file e.g. events.php in the root directory. Basically I do not know what page, file or function to include.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this sort of thing isn't possible in WordPress, can anyone recommend a more suitable CMS script?
