    I hope this doe not confuse anyone. I have not chosen a theme as of yet. I have a client that wants the posts/replys/pictures,etc. embedded into a page within the theme page. So instead of having the whole blog page, only these items would be in a scrollable area within the page. I do not want to create a web page and embed the information. I want to keep CMS still available for everything.

    From what I can see IFrames is probably the best choice. But how I accomplish that, I have no idea. Any help would be appreciated.

    Create a one-Page WordPress site with comments enabled. Upload images the usual way.

    Thanks for your quick reply. Not grasping what you mean. So let me put it another way.

    I create a blank page from the theme. Below the header/navigation, I insert a picture. Then below that picture I want to embed in an area the posts/replys, etc. into a fixed area frame, minus the header and footers. Then below this area I will insert another picture. The viewer would always see the pictures, and then have the ability to scroll through the posts/replys in the middle without scrolling down the page as in the usual fashion.

    I hope this makes more sense. This may be a custom programming issue that is probably way beyond my means or ability. But this is what my clients wants. Whether it is possible or not is another story, cost wise.

    Instead of iframe, an alternative would be to get a javascript solution which would allow you to scroll all kinds of content within the browser frame. There’s http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/infinite-scroll/ but no idea whether it still works with WP 3.0.1. Or you can google for JS solutions and incorporate that to your theme.

    Here is what I have done. I added a scrollable IFrame to the body of the page. That works! Then I created a file called “blog_content.php”, and made it the SCR for the IFrame content. Itb is reading the file, but with errors.

    The code I copied is the body of a template page that conatins what I believe is the code for the blogging content. It is as follows:

    [Large code excerpt removed by moderator. Per forum rules, please use the pastebin for all large code excerpts. It works better anyway.]

    Now, do I have the correct code? The file I placed in the “wordpress-mu/themes/Arjuna” directory.

    Does this look like the way to go. All I want to do is call the file for the body of the IFrame, and it should work, correct?

    What am I doing wrong, or is my theroy for all this messed up?

    Thanks for your reply!
