Help: a blog updater.

  • # September 14, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    Hi,

    I am trying to create a blog updater, kind of like the one on this page http://www.twloha.com. (on the top right.)
    It posts the title as well as some details on the latest blog posts on their blog.
    Does anyone here happen to know how to create one of those?

    Thank you very much,

    Josh

    Yes, Use wordpress. There are many tutorials on this site about designing for wordpress. Then you can use the wordpress codex to get the info on how to display all kinds of stuff about your blog. For example.

    the_title(); will display the title of a blog

    the_date(); will display the date the blog was made

    the_author(); will display the author of the blog.

    It goes way deeper than that.

    Sorry to bother again, but one more question. Does this code only work if I base my website off wordpress or do I only need my blog to be based off of WordPress?

    most people are making the intire site out of wordpress and then making the blog part of wordpress part of their site. To get an idea of what I am talking about. Take a look over at themeforest.net. Look at the wordpress themes. You can see how they look like a regular website but also have blogging capabilites. It is completley customizable. There is a guy who made a blank theme for you to use to make your own theme.

    This theme is designed as a blank template so you can design your site around wordpress.
