Put Your Blog on Your Site - Integrate Your Blog Into Your Site
(Page 2 of 4 )
With some blogging services, there is a way you can change your blog settings to integrate it right into your Web site. Unfortunately, to use this method you have to understand a lot about FTP (file transfer protocol). Blogger offers a text-based tutorial on inserting a blog into your site using this method.
Through FTP publishing, you can publish your blog right to your site, and posts will be updated to your pages in real time. Sometimes, however, this method can be a little difficult for the casual Webmaster/blogger. When your site is on a free server, for instance, you might not have access to the FTP information you need. You might not be code-savvy enough to make this work well with your site, and you might not like making the change on your blog. Sometimes, even a user-friendly FTP function can do you very little good. FTP publishing doesn’t have to be your only option when you want to integrate an existing blog with an existing site, however.
You might consider moving an entire blog from its existing server to your Web site, a tedious process that involves a lot of copying and pasting. When you have a well-established blog with an archive and organized tags, navigation and extras, however, moving the blog just might not be at all feasible. Sure, you want to integrate your existing blog with your existing site…but you want to get some sleep sometime this month, too. Who’s got the time for all that copying, pasting, and re-promoting your blog from its entirely new location?
Instead of using complicated Internet protocol, moving your blog or just giving up on the idea altogether, try a simple code.
With the above code, you can tell a Web page to open up another Web page inside a frame. In this way, you can very neatly (and easily!) insert your blog right onto a Web page. Users will see the blog exactly as it appears on its own server; they’ll just be viewing it inside a page that’s already on your existing, established Web site.
