A friend of mine [thanks Gregory Stone] has turned me on to a WordPress plugin called “Jetpack by WordPress.com“. This is an awesome, free, fast, easy plugin to link your WordPress blog to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.
This is a free and cool WordPress plugin that will automatically open you photos on posts and pages in a “Lightbox” effect where it dims the screen down and displays your photo at full size.
Say you have a menu with Events at the top and then when you scroll over Events with your mouse a drop down menu appears with other pages related to Events. You want the Events “header” to not be a clickable link but to just show the drop down list and all the pages/posts listed under Events to go to their respective pages. Here’s how to do that!
I searched the web trying to find instructions on how to incorporate a WordPress Blog into my existing HTML web site. All the instructions I found were not what I was wanting; creating a WordPress blog to look like your web site and use it instead of a HTML web site. I finally found bits of instructions that actually incorporate a blog into an HTML site and here is everything put together to hopefully help someone else out trying to do the same thing.
What This Process Creates
- A new WordPress Blog web site that resides inside of your HTML web site directory.
- A new page on your HTML web site that displays the latest 3 posts of your external blog site.
