Hi,

I am considering buying LoopBuddy but want to know first if it is possible to use this plugin to add just the blog portion of WordPress into an existing HTML page?

I apologize if I've missed the answer to my question somewhere else on the website.

Thanks!

Hello Sean,

Thanks for your interest in LoopBuddy!

If I understand the question correctly you want to use LoopBuddy to add a WordPress blog to an existing non-WordPress site, correct? If this is the case the answer is no. WordPress is a blogging tool and CMS that's based on the WordPress Loop Standard. LoopBuddy is a WordPress plugin (that can only be used on a WordPress install) that overrides the the current loop to display custom queries and layouts.

If you have a current WordPress install and want to add a blog to your site then LoopBuddy can help to organize your custom queries and layouts without (most likely) having to touch any code.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Gerroald

That answers my question. But to broaden it a bit, what I am trying to do is add a blog to my existing non-WordPress site by installing WordPress in a /blog directory and keeping the look of my site without having to customize a WordPress theme (if possible). I am basically trying to keep it as simple as possible.

Or, is it simply not possible without doing the work of customizing a theme?

Thanks again.
