Hello, I am curious if anyone has any tips or info for adding a blog to my website. But, I am wondering how do you go about adding one that allows people to leave comments on your entry about a story, news, etc...

Thanks

Hey THANKS. That seems to be what i am trying to do. But I am alittle clueless as to how to go about getting it started. Anyone ever used this service before.

I probably need to take some time to figure it all out.

But I also have my forums so I am thinking that maybe i should stick with that for now...?

you can download the script and install it on your server.

so, lets say you want to have a blog
then you can have it www.yoursite.com/blog/

forums can be www.yoursite.com/forums

this way you can have both

You are using which hosting provider? Usually many hosting providers have the facility for users to install scripts automatically. Contact your hosting provider's support if its not listed in your cpanel.

Alternatively, you can download wordpress's latest version from wordpress.org and upload it to your server and follow the instructions for installing it properly, for that you can go to wordpress codex.

After installing your blog script, copy its link location in your public directory and just add one navigation button onto your website for this very blog. After this just paste the direct link to your blog under that navigation button and you are done.
