I had originally posted this in a different forum, but got no replies, so I'm trying it here. (apologies if that's bad practice)
I have a very old web site going back to 1995 in some parts, but also very popular (PR6). There's no CMS and the site has a lot of SSI 'virtual includes.' Since moving to a new server, we've been looking at converting the site to Drupal or some other CMS.
For a number of reasons, mostly to get some fresh content, before we convert to a CMS, I would like to embed a blog on the home page. I know I can add blog content from another site by using a RSS aggregator, but I'd rather not do that. If for no other reason, the blog providing the new content would need to exist as a separate domain.
I know I can also install Drupal and use the Frontpage module (I tried it before), but that leads to a lot of problems, especially with Drupal wanting to take over many URLs of the original site.
So I'm wondering if there's a CMS or blog that can easily be embedded in an existing domain without too much difficulty, something that would co-exist within the domain of the original site.
Since we are thinking of Drupal as the eventual solution, I'd prefer something where the blog data would be able to be imported into the new site when it comes online. That's not essential, but it would be nice.
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
