hi, i run a small clothing company called influxclothing (http://www.influx-clothing.co.uk/)
and was looking to redo the whole site.

What i would like help on, is there a way to intergrate a blogger.com (or any other free blog) into the site.
for example how this site is done (http://www.manmadeclothing.com)

i want to use the blog as the news section to quickly post pics of new stuff etc. And i would like the layout to be pretty much the same as the site i just mentioned.

i am familar wiv dreamweaver but not so much css and that, although i am learning.
thanks for any help offered.

There are a few blogger scripts that you could use and as long as you follow the instruction im sure you could incorp a good one easily enough

just google blogger scripts.

in your site you have this..

Clothing is aimed at the alternative lifestyle, such as alternative music, and bmx. The two things wich influence my life the most


you need WoW factor to appeal to the skater and bmx kids. Somthin like a place to hangout would be great with a chat engine and a graffiti styley. Also stick a review section for best places to skate and ride. Also stick a forum in there for like-minded people to chat and discuss trucks and pegs and stuff (listen to me getting it down with the kids! hehe)

go to my favorate place for design inspiration...
www.cwd.dk (http://www.cwd.dk)

http://www.wa007.com/2003/ << this is what i see your site looking like (abit more colourful though)


that will get ya design muscle going

Thats a great business model you have with very little restrictions and an excuse to break rules. It could be a gold mine.

Oh nearly forgot...

Hi Sammy and welcome to the forum

Welcome to the foum Sam!im still abit confused...theres so many terms. Hey we've all been there :)
i just see rss, atom, feedburner and its all confusing! There's few shortcut, you basically have 2 options: You can dedicate some time to study and read about these techonologies, or have someone do it for you. There's plenty of information online about blogging+ tutorials and articles.

also how would i actually implment this onto the page? using some sort of frame referin to the blog url? You can use feeds like you mentioned above, blogger.com also has an ftp option which is probably easier for you.
