[Resolved] Putting blog content in an exsisting page.

  • I am trying to put simple blog content and allow comments in one column of a 2 column page (www.barbieguardians.com)

    Let me start by saying that I am very new to coding web pages. (I am sure that will become painfully evident as we go on) I started this page to begin learning HTML and CSS.

    The concept is to provide a place for my friend to record stories about her Barbie collecting, and to showcase her dolls. At this point I am not terribly concerned with the look or feel, just the functionality.

    I found a great 2 column style sheet, and have modified it to fit my needs.

    What I would like to do now is place blog content and if possible, allow for comments in the right column, labeled “My adventures”. I am very lost when I read the documentation for Word Press. I learned HTML and CSS by reading tutorials and playing around with code on my computer. I think because PHP is a server sided language, I can’t do that.

    Thank you for your time. If you do answer, remember I m very new to this, and what might sound easy for you may be much harder for me. Please consider that I am in kindergarten here!. (Well, I am pretty proud of my results so far, maybe second grade!!!

    Thanks again
    Dave

    Actually, that’s a wrong approach. WP is a stand alone application, not something to be “inserted” somewhere.
    You can display, for example, the latest posts on another webpage, but to enable commenting there, too… it would require some really custom coding. So, at this moment I think that’s an unrealistic project.

    Just install WordPress in a subdirectory/folder of your exitsing site – and use it there. Like:
    example.com/blog

    Thank you. I figured this would either be really simple, or really hard. I appreciate your time

    can we get a [resolved]?
