[Resolved] Tying wordpress blog into another page
Gotta say loving wordpress (as it is my first post).
Here is what I would like to figure out if I can do. I have my site. Which is at mysite.com and I have my wordpress blog at mysite.com/news
What I would like to know if it is possible is to tie “new posts” or posts of a specific caterogry on my mysite.com. I only have wordpress installed in the news folder, but was wondering if I could copy over some of the php to make this work.
I think the easiest way to do this would be to move my wordpress blog over to mysite.com and just redo the permalinks to be names like I want, but! before I give up and do that wanna know if the tie in is possible.
Rev. I consider myself a searcher, before poster, but you sir have made me feel like I just didn’t know how to search : (
Thanks, great links! Will implement and comment back if I have issues!
Quick aside since you may be looking here : P
<?php query_posts(‘showposts=3’); ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?>
Where do you set the category? So if I want my news to show last 3 posts? Where do I place the category so that I can only show the last 3 posts from select categories.
Rev., or anyone else that might be able to help!
I have failed : (
I have followed the directions in the links you provided and I can not get it to read the php.
My site is advanceperformance.com and my wordpress is located at advanceperformance.com/news/
I have :
At the top of the page and my custom post display in a section called “blog”
Anyone? I have also checked permissions and any other failing point. Don’t know if it is something little I am just overlooking as I have been looking at this for some time now.
Firebug isn’t being very helpful either. I just notice none of the php is returning anything : ( so clearly something is wrong!
any thoughts today? I went through it again last night and am baffled. Check spellings etc and nothing works ; (
checked all the permissions and am at my last stand : P
If I can not get this to work I guess I am trying something else.
Just remembered to check this thread. Sorry for the delay, Here’s how I do it…
<?php // Include WordPress define('WP_USE_THEMES', false); require('../empire/wp-blog-header.php'); query_posts('showposts=10'); ?> </head>
that bit of code goes just above the closing </head> as I’ve shown, some folks say it goes at the VERY top of your page…. but, that didn’t work for me, it works perfectly where I have it. Notice I have
../empiretwo dots, you probably don’t need that. My WP is in a subdirectory, so I had to back out of that, that’s why I have the extra dot. Also, the file you are trying to attach to WP is a .php file correct? It can’t be .html, but it’s as simple as renaming it to .php and possibly adding this to a .htaccess file to tell browsers to use index.php rather than index.html
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
Now, if you only want to use a certain category, you just include that in the above code here:
so, an example:
returns 10 posts in category 4
so that sets up calling the posts…but nothing is displayed yet, so you just need to build a loop. That goes in the <body> section of your webpage somewhere, here’s my loop:
<div id="voodoorss"> <?php while (have_posts()): the_post(); ?> <div class="dateIcon"> <h5><?php the_time('M'); ?></h5> <p><?php the_time('j'); ?></p> </div> <div class="text"> <h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4> <div class="thumb"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></div> <?php the_excerpt(); ?> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">Read More...</a> </div> <br /> <?php endwhile; ?> </div>
That just displays the date in an icon, the title, the excerpt, a thumbnail, and the Read More as a link back to my blog
I can not test it now but I can not believe I over looked the file extention : (
I have index.html, I just completely over looked it. All these years of coding and I constantly make the smallest mistakes. Thanks for posting your example snippets, I should be fine with the code. In the mean time I did start to rough in buzzfeeder, which I think is amazing, lol, and I would vote as one of the greatest free to use RSS reader out there.
So I am kinda glad I got stumped by such a simple thing like the .php and found another source.
Again thanks for the post Rev. I will let you know how it goes, but I am certain the page will read the php now lol.
