How can I incorporate a blog into and existing template or site

I want to incorporate a blog (just a blog ) into my site. its a template : guglielmopardo.me/template/Zero/Zero_Turquoise

it uses foundation four, but I'm not sure how to do it. I don't want to use wordpress or an external host.

Any suggestions. I'm new to Foundation and coding.

Hi Carly,

Incorporating Foundation into WordPress is really easy. I have done this already with my WordPress theme WP-Forge.

If you like you can download it and use it to learn how I did it. Many consider this to be the best WordPress Foundation theme available.

Its offered free and is totally GPL.

You can learn more about it here http://themeawesome.com/responsive-wordpress-theme/

The reason I am sharing this is I hope you can learn how i did it and use what you learned to create your own version.

Enjoy!

You can create a static blog with this template and host it yourself. You'll get html, css, and JS needed to use it / customize it. All you need is a text editor and the download files to get started. Make it the way you want, then find a hosting platform.

If you want a CMS, then WP like Thomas Suggested is great or something simple like Ghost http://abc.pxt.be/

Does this make sense?

Yes you can install WordPress on pretty much any hosting provider. if not, then they probably are not a provider you want to be with.

I thought you wanted to turn your current template into a WordPress theme. That is my fault, I misread your post.

Basically what you would do is set up your hosting, install your template and add your content. Then, in order to set up your blog, create a new folder and call it blog (or whatever you want) and upload the WordPress Files there, then install it.

Your blog will then have an address similar to this http://www.yoursite.com/blog

Again I apologize for the confusion on my part.

Hi Thomas and Rafi. Thanks this is just what I'm looking for. I want to create a blog as a section of the website that will update periodically so this is perfect. Thank you.

Thomas would I still use the tutorial you provided as a reference for how to install the wordpress to my host?

Thomas E. Vasquez about 4 years ago

Actually no. Most hosting providers have what is called "one click" installs. This is a program that will create the database for you and install WordPress as well. Look for a tutorial from your hosting provider. Who is the provider you are going with?

Thanks. Probably godaddy.

Foundation has these Html templates like these:

could this be used as theme or part of one once my site is connected to WP?
