I figured this task out, at least how to do it with my web host, 1and1. Go to my website and click on the Blog and News Coverage tab on the left and see if this is what y'all are trying to accomplish. If so, then read on.
My goal was to have tab (menu item) to jump directly to the blog. But the obstacles were:
1. I use 1and1's online Website Builder, which does not provide a tool for doing this.
2. I wanted the blog's banner to emulate the website's banner to look seamless.
So I had to basically do 2 things:
1. To make the blog emulate he website, I had to install WordPress on the server and make the blog from that. The reason for this is that although 1and1 has a tool for setting up a WordPress blog, the banner templates they offer are very limited. I would have had to choose the same one for the blog and the website. But my website banner is not one of 1and1's template choices at all. Rather, it is one I custom made. And on the blog side, 1and1 does not allow making a custom blog banner when using their WordPress blog tool.
The process of installing WordPress on the web server was simple and involved making a mySLQ database (simple using the 1and1 tool provided), making a subdomain called blog.healthaccessri.com, and then linking the mySLQ database to the subdomain.
When I installed WordPress software on the server (rather than using their WordPress creation tool) then I was able to use Kubrickr to replace the standard WordPress banner with my own via uploading my properly sized banner to flickr and then following the instructions on how to get that banner into my WordPress blog (note: there is a quirky thing about kubrickr that the size of the banner you make has to be bigger than the one it is replacing or it will not work).
2. Now that my blog looks like the rest of my website, I had to make a tab (menu item) link directly to it. Remember I had said that 1and1's online web creation tool, Website Builder, does not provide for this. So this was done using a redirect. I knew squat about how to do this and a google search turned up this page. After trying a few of the suggestions, the one that worked quite easily was in the section titled, 301 Redirect Using htaccess. I followed the instructions, creating a file on my local computer called htaccess.txt, uploaded the file to my web server via ftp and then renamed it on the server to htaccess (dropping the .txt). The content of the file was exactly this:
Redirect 301 /Blog_and_News.html http://blog.healthaccessri.com
when I looked at my website in a browser - BAM! It was done.
