Front End Description

The client wanted to add a WordPress blog to their existing site without the users knowing they were going from static pages to the WordPress site. I took their existing CSS and XHTML and created a simple theme so the change would be transparent to the user.

Back End Description

The only backend functionality for this was creating a javascript widget for the static pages that contained the latest blog posts Instead of putting in parser code on every page – I made a javascript widget so they could simply copy and paste one line of JS on each/any of their pages and output the recent blog posts.
