1) I want to set up a blog on my website. Do I need to use
wordpress for example or can Dreamweaver do this?
2) Is a blog only different in the fact that it allows a user
to reply and post to topics or are there other differences too?
1. Wordpress is a good example if you are in a php/mysql
environment. If you are not sure what scripting language and/or
database you can use, you should contact your web hosting provider
for this information. Dreamweaver can make blogs but you would need
to understand how to program and why re-invent the wheel if
Wordpress is a perfect example of what you want.
2. Blogs are basically just logs on the web. It's like a news
posting with one major category that gets updated. The ability to
reply or post is no different from a forum, so I wouldn't say that
is unique to anything.
Thanks SnakEyez02. Yes my host supports PHP so that's
probably what I will use.
I guess I just want the simplest solution that will offer a
lot of flexibility, but I think you are right, it might be easiest
to add the WordPress Blog into a Dreamweaver site unless there is
some Blog add-on for Dreamweaver or a simple script. (Simple
script) I think that's an oxymoron!
