Hello everyone, I've been searching for days now looking for a simple script that allows me to embed a blog or something similar into a page on my existing website without having to use a cms style blog. What I want is something like a php line of code that I can add to my page that when called shows my posts that are stored in a database or flatfile. It must have some sort of spam preventable script for comments also. I already have a website and don't want to reinvent the wheel just add a blogging page that I can control through the backend without having to upgrade all the time or have to spend much time configuring like most of the cms blogs out there today (wordpress, serendipity, etc). Does something like this exist? Or am I asking for something that is impossible to achieve? I don't have any php coding experience I'm just a web designer using css and html. However I can upload files, set permissions, modify existing files, work with mysql etc. I lease my own dedicated server so I can control that aspect of it.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place but I couldn't figure out any other thread that looked close to what I am trying to say.

1. You can use RSS Feeds on your site

Or

2. Try this code to embed HTML in HTML
<object data=http://www.yourblog.com width="600" height="400"> <embed src=http://www.yoursite.com width="600" height="400"> </embed> Error: Embedded data could not be displayed. </object>

you could set up a blog on a supported host such as blogger and set up an RSS feed to display blog content on your site or even use an iframe to display the blog.

Thanks guys but I think I found what I am looking for at sloppyblog.net. Seems to be working okay. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to add a comments section after I learn a little more about php.
