Integrating a Blog Into a Dynamic CMS Website

Integrating a Blog Into a Dynamic CMS Website

What is the easiest way to integrate a blog into a WebAssist dynamic CMS website? In the past I have created sub-directories for static sites and installed a WordPress instance. It's worked out OK but I'm moving away from static sites. More and more my clients want a CMS site so they can update and maintain it themselves.

Some time back I bought all of the SuperSuite programs and they've paid for themselves many times over. So much so that I plan on upgrading to Data Bridge, Design Extender and eCart. I'm at a point now where I need to focus on building full featured custom CMS sites with integrated blogs (most of my customers want blogs built into there sites). It seems redundant to use both Data Bridge and WordPress on the same site. I'm not sure if it's even viable? Even if it is, separate sign-on's would be required and there would be more to learn. This complicates things for end users that maintain the sites. Complexity and learning curves don't sell... simplicity does!

I'm just reaching out in the hopes that someone can point me in the right direction. While Data Bridge will no doubt fit the bill for converting static sites to CMS sites, I'm concerned about the blog portion. Thoughts...?

Hello there...I intend to create my own blogging system this week using the end of the day a blogging system is just a collection of data entries in a database (in the most basic example) and then to create a more feature rich bloggin system using the WebAssist HTMLEditor extension to allow easier formatting and adding of photos etc. The you can use WebAssist Search to create a nice searching facility for your blog. WebAssist Sort behavaiour to sort blog entries on a page etc. With all thats contained in the features of WebAssist products you can create a really powerful blogging system with ease.

Web Assist doesn't have a fully functional blogging extension?

Admittedly, that seems like a bit of a monster to develop, especially as an extension which the Dreamweaver designer can manipulate in a zillion different ways... but hey... what was once mind boggling is what WA specializes in making simple.
