Not sure if you literally want the blog to be apart of the cart by embedding it or just want a smooth transition between the cart and blog w/o a user noticing a change. I dont know abut #1 but I read that #2 is doable. You can set up the blog on a subdomain. Use the center page area as for your articles but copy the outer border to match your cart. No one will notice a transition. Going back and forth will be a smooth transition especially if you keep the category / header links constant. . This was done with blogger but Im sure it will work with wordpress and other blogs too. To do it as a blogger account you have to 1) set up the account 2) subdomain 3)set the blogger setting to host it on your own server. Put it all the DSN stuff. 4) disign the shell to look like your site. 5) post away.
I don't how tricky it is to customize it when you host remotely but I think its a liltte tricky to do it when hosted on their servers. The template codes are not like designing normal a web page. If this is not what you had in mind . . . sorry haha
I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I just don't get the whole subdomain thing and how it works. Do you need to purchase a secondary domain and then have it point to something like: subdomain.maindomain.com or blog.maindomain.com?
I've been looking into the blog idea, too, but wasn't sure how to integrate it with my NetSol version 4 site...
