    I want to add a blog/journal to my website, on the home page, but I'm not sure how I go about it.
    Do I have to link a blogsite through my website?
    I just want to be able to post news and give people the chance to leave comments.
    I don't want any funky templates or anything.
    Just simple text, like that already on my website, a header for the blog title, the date, my blog entry and then a chance for people to comment.

    Any advice and help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
    Matt

    You can download and install something like Wordpress or B2Evloution. I can show you how to do it.

    I was looking at wordpress, but i got the impression that it ran as a seperate to the website.
    Can you make it run through the website and appear as part of it?

    Yeah, Just download it, Upload it to a folder like "blog" and upload the wordpress files to the server. When you're done with that go to http://www.yoursite.com/blog/install/ or something along the lines of that and just install it, Make sure you have you a mysql database and user up though.

    Sorry if that seams a little jumbled, I'm just tired. Let me know if you need any more clarification.

    Thanks for the help.
    I got it set up and made it run through an iframe on as my homepage.
    just need to play around a bit moe with the template and maybe remove the header completly.
