Free Blog that can be embedded within my website.

Hi Experts,

I'm looking to add a small blog to a website that I'm working on.  

I've always used external blogs in the past that made you leave the website.  I would like to contain the blog within this new website without ever having to leave.  I would like to have one Administrator who can remove comments if need be.

I've used Blogger.com by Google before.  Is it possible to edit and post everything within Blogger and have it update the content within the actual website.  Also, I don't want to have user comments have to leave the page.  I would like them to be able to make comments by simply adding their Name or SN then comment.

THANKS!

What platform are you hosting on?  If MySQL and PHP are available to you (Linux or Windows) go with WordPress (you can install it on your server).

I've honestly only used HTML with flash elements before.  I'm not too well versed with detailed scripting.  I was figuring it might be something similar to an RSS feed of some kind.

I've always just used the "publichtml folder to publish everything in.  I'm using Site5 and I know that it definitely has MySQL capabilities.

I'll look into using Wordpress.  I've read up no it, and it seems that a lot of people are using it.

I'll keep this thread updated as I go.

THANKS!

Unfortunately this is as far as I got with it:

Danny: [2:07:34 PM] What's up Kyle I'm in need of some help seting up wordpress on my website
Kyle Ross: [2:08:03 PM] Ok, let me know what you need help with :)
Danny: [2:09:23 PM] All of my websites are done HTML with various flash elements. I'm looking to Add a wordpress blog within the website. Any blog I've delt with before has been external from any of my websites I would like to embed a wordpress blog onto one of my pages.
[2:09:31 PM] SOOOO I guess square one sir.
Kyle Ross: [2:10:41 PM] So you need to setup another wordpress installation?
Danny: [2:12:27 PM] I honestly don't know. I clicked to download wordpress to the mySQL but I don't know anything about it. Within an HTML webpage on either wordpress's side or site5's side do I have to do anything else to get the content to go within the page? Similar to an RSS Feed?
Kyle Ross: [2:13:22 PM] You shouldn't need to. The problem may be with Wordpress. Site5 does not provide support for scripts, so I not too sure what to tell you.
Danny: [2:14:35 PM] Bummer... OK

They just need to help you install WordPress.  After that, It would be up to you to do custom stuff with it.

With that said, once you have WP setup, you can use the rss feed it generates to display its content anywhere you want...

Sorry for the delay.  This was part of a freebe project that I stopped working on.  It took a sideline.  Thanks for your time.
