Showing WordPress.com in WordPress.org website (7 posts)

    Hi folks,

    Just in the process of building a website for my partner and was wondering if there was a plugin or another way to show her wordpress.com blog on the website based on a WordPress.org install. Ideally I'd like it to show on a page of it's own and automatically update as she updates the blog, kind of like a live feed I guess.

    Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks for the tip and that kind of works, I guess I was hoping for something that would show the blog as a whole page if you see what I mean. On investigation, I'm wondering if what I need to do is to find a way to edit the permalink for the tab that is created when I create a Blog page. That way clicking on the tab would link to the blog page rather than trying to squeeze it into a website page. I haven't hit on the right way to do this yet so again, any help is most appreciated :)

    Well, that's helpful! All I was trying to do was see if anyone had any other ideas as I thought this was a support forum. Bumping the thread hadn't even occurred to me. Frankly I find it a rather disappointing attitude when someone has come genuinely looking for help.

    Just in case anyone else looks for how to do this, I managed to do it by creating a 'blog' folder in the root directory of the website and adding an index.php page with the following script -


    header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com/new_page.html' ) ;


    (Script was found here)

    Obviously http://www.yoursite.com/new_page.html becomes the url of the site you want to redirect to. Then, the permalink for the page simply becomes http://www.rowansong.co.uk/blog and the tab for the blog page then redirects straight to the blog just the way I wanted.

    Hope that makes sense and many thanks to those who tried to help.
