    I have a html (contact.html, articles.html) website and a WordPress blog installed in a sub-directory. I would like to integrate WordPress into my site and use it as a CMS.

    All the articles I've come across only explain how to use WordPress in a new website. Since mine's been up for sometime now, I'm bothered about how to retain my pages.

    Thanks for your help and All the best

    Try to modify a wordpress template that model your HTML website's looks and style. Then scrap your HTML website (though back it up and keep it for in case you change your mind about WordPress). Copying the contents over! I know this is a hard way. Unless you can find software that can steal contents on your own website and provide a way for you to import those contents of your into your WordPress -- most likely in XML format I think! Doing this to someone else website is unethical and may get you into trouble with the laws!

    You are heading in the right direction because WordPress help you manage your content more effortlessly from now on and into the future. Changing template once for hundred or thousands of contents will be a merely a second since you only have to deactivate the old template and activate a new one. The only hard part is to design a good template!

    Longer ago i used coranto on my static html pages as a blogtool through an incude statement:
    <!--#include virtual="/nieuwsc/news.txt" -->

    Maybe something like: <!--#include virtual="/wordpress/index.php" -->

    But, if you do a lot of blogging you need navigation to organise your posts etc etc. If it's more like twittering, yo can do this and use a very basic template with just central content.
