    I have been recently adding pages to my WordPress that have zFeeder included in them. Are you talking about something like this?
    My Recent Newsfeeds - http://bakshi.us/blog/feeds
    My Moblog - http://bakshi.us/blog/mobile
    If it is... I THINK I MIGHT NEED IT! :)

    Uh-huh.... If you visit my site, in the menu, just above the calendar are three links, one for Links, one for Recent Comments, and one for Comment Leaders. Each of those links use this technique.

    Where is the link to your site so we can take a look at it?

    @anonymous,
    One possible way to find the site for any member is to click on the MEMBER hyperlink below each person's name in the left-hand column of this forum. You will be taken to that person's profile page. I think that *most* people have supplied a link to their sites from the profile page.
    This is TG's site.
    HTH.

    @TG
    Would you mind sending me the shell you've created... I'd like to take a look at it... czar@hartfordwhalers.net
    I've been wanting to move to WordPress for a long time, but I need support for some static pages... If this works for me, I'll jump on the table and do an Irish jig ;)
    Thanks,
    Colin

    czar21 - sure thing. What I'll do is package it up into a zip, and post it on my site and put the link here.

    This works...but I have a (potentially) stupid question.
    Is there a way to edit those static pages with the editor?
    (I realize you can edit the html file, but I am settting this up for someone who doesn't know any html; it would be handy to use the editor for bold, italics, etc.)
    Thanks!

    Sorry if this comes off as rude, but you should check out my plugin Faked Folders. It uses WP's own CMS for editing, so adding/updating content is just like a post's. You can also assign specific templates and plugins to folders so they act nothing like your weblog... Or as an exact clone of it... :)

    Okay...obviously I'm a complete noob here, but I can't get this working. These are the steps I took:
    1] installed it correctly (I think!)
    2] set up a 'faked-folder'
    3] added drafts to the faked-folder.
    4] "set" one of the drafts (this sets the draft as the 'index' for that folder, right?)
    My assumption was, if I created a faked-folder called "testing", I could find the draft I associated with it by going here:
    http://www.mywebsite.com/testing/
    Maybe I'm just tired...maybe I need a beer... i dunno.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hm... Is your WP install in the root directory? Would http://mywebsite.com/ pull up your weblog? The URIs are relative to the WP install. Also do you use a .htacess file for your permalinks? The plugin is tied to it at that file moment. If that doesn't solve it, then can you send the re-write rules on the plugin's main page?

    uhm, I am not using .htaccess for my permalinks...in fact I don't even know what that is.
    Sorry...I'm new to all this bloggin stuff!

    Hello,
    First off, thanks for your help.
    I don't have WordPress installed on the root. It's in a folder called "WordPress".
    Here are the re-write rules:
    # BEGIN FAKED FOLDERS RULES
    RewriteRule ^testing/([^/]+)/?$ /index.php?static=true&template=1&name=$1 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^testing/?$ /index.php?static=true&template=1&p=2 [QSA]
    RewriteRule ^anothertest/?$ /index.php?static=true&template=1&p=4 [QSA]
    # END FAKED FOLDERS RULES
