    Hi everyone,
    I’m trying to implement latest news/blogs into a HTML page.
    I’m building a page for a friend and now they asked if I could get WordPress running on it.
    I have never used WordPress before and to be hones I have absolutely no idea where to start.
    As far as I can tell, I have installed it properly. I was able to post a text blog update.
    Now all I need to do is add the news feed to my index.html page. Is it possible?

  • No that is not possible. HTML is not a dynamic language like PHP. The page needs to be PHP to perform these kinds of actions. There are lots of great tutorials on building themes for wordpress.

    I would suggest installing WordPress in a sub-folder, selecting a theme then linking to that from your html site.

    yoursite.com/blog/

    From that there are ways you can still get the latest posts into your “real” home page, but again, that would need to be php.

    Actually years ago I used a wp feed into my html page with no problem. But not all browsers have built in readers (Chrome for example). I also opened wp with an iframe on my html site. Finally I realized that I could do anything I wanted with wp so I dumped html for php.

    The sub folder idea above is the way most do it. You can use css and have wp look like your html page.

    Oh, I forgot about iframes. Good point!

    Awesome thanks guys! I’ll consider setting up my wordpress blog to look like my home page but for now the iframe solution will do.

    sorry for the double post, just wanted to mark this as resolved 🙂
