I would like the blog on my website to have different properities from the rest of my pages.
Although it would have the same theme, and look, I want things like the sidebar etc. to have different properties such as have a calender, archives, catagories etc. etc. while I only want my static pages to display search, recent posts and maybe one or two other things.
How do I do this and what should I be looking at? Do I need to create a second mySQL and wordpress database for my blog or is there some other way?
