Good day! As I didn´t find any other creative solutions or widgets to easily implement a blog using adobe muse, I started creating a new blog just like creating a website, of course without comments section or search section (I don´t need the both of those).I only need to post articles and update the content like 2 times a week. I have the main landing page for the blog where are all the topics, on the right I have the ¨most recent posts¨ and categories links. The only problem that I will encounter is the following : every time I will post an article, I will have to manually push down all the content from the landing page and as well from the ´categories´  pages. And, as well I´ve been thinking that after the first topics page is full(I will have like 10 topics/page), I need to create a second page and so on.. and I will have to push down the content and move the last topic from the previous page to the next one and so on..  It seems like a very uncool way to create and update a blog, but I haven´t found any other solutions to use with adobe muse. What do you think about this? Is there any way to implement a blog in muse(but only the blog content) and the rest of the website layout to remain static while you can just update the blog?

  I did not find any simple widgets that can help, there are some but there seem to be very complicated. It´s like muse is very simple to use while the actual blogging widgets that are on the market are so messed up and hard to use and implement.

   Thanks

I would recommend that you just use wordpress. Muse is not suitable for this. Even if you use third-party widgets for blog in Muse, you will constantly face different difficulties and with a lot of manual work.

There´s nothing in muse, that makes a blog as easy as a blog widget or a blog system like you will find here, I hope.

Unfortunately it is also a question of money .

Best Regards,

Uwe

You want something that is mutually exclusive. Outside the blog software itself it's simply not possible to control the structure and formatting of dynamic posts just like the blog software is totally unaware of any specifics of your page if you embed it e.g. via an iframe or widget into your normal page. Conversely, there would at some point be a limit as to how large those iframes or whatever can be to accomodate the blog stream. That being the case, I would suggest to keep things separate if you don't want to spend any money and just place links on your page. Otherwise there are of course a million ways, but you will have to look far beyond vanilla Muse and pay extra cash.

Hello and thanks for your support. First of all, I don´t know many things about wordpress neither how to use it, but I know that if you don´t have any knowledge about coding or very little it will be hard to develop a website from scratch. I´ve tried it.I mean right, you can use plugins and templates but I want to make the website from scratch, the layout, everything. I don´t want to already modify a template or be limited by my knowledge on coding. In WP you can´t make a website from scratch the way you please without some coding knowledge or without beeing an advanced user. Am I right? It is my opinion. I tried to play with wordpress and It seemed that muse is much more easier if you are not a coder and in muse you can build the websites from scratch in all ways, as you please, you can design everything so easily.

No knowledge of coding is required to work in WordPress. Wordpress can be studied in three days. Wordpress allows you to do what you want in terms of functionality. Muse does not allow this. I think you attach too much importance to freedom of design. 99% of sites made in the Muse, look worse than the default Wordpress template. Because most Muse users are generally new to web development and think they are following the path of least resistance. But they are greatly mistaken. Muse is a program for developing web design, but not for website development. Using Muse to develop and administer the site, you get a lot of unnecessary manual labor and a lack of functionality.

And you are already convinced of all this, because you created this topic. Now you have to admit it to yourself

So why don`t you have a look to what I have already suggested earlier this week and watch at musewidgets.com?

You could get deeper to muse-themes.com and ask them, wether their blog widgets may fit to your needs.

If it´s a blog only for your purposes this should be going quite well.

Also heard qooqee has some as well but I found it sometimes a lack of support, though.

AND, finally, all of them only work with subscription, qooqee even worse you have to pay for any blog you want separately.

In my opinion a question of money and what exactly you need.

Best Regards,

Uwe

I think Uwe and Pavel have in parts covered the answer you are looking for.

If you are looking to create a website that doesn't require a lot of interaction with a backend database or server, use Muse. If you want to create a custom website with minimal interactivity, Muse can help you with that. Do understand the requirements of your website and limitations of the software that you intend to use, and your own knowledge of web design and development before you proceed.

Thanks,

Preran

Hello everyone. Thank you for your advice and ideas. Does anyone have updated info about musexpress? The point is that you build the design in muse and after that you can convert your site to wordpress and add the blog articles simple adn effective. The problem is: does anyone know how effective is this convertion? Some people told me that it´s very hard to create your own theme/layout in wordpress if you are not a coder. I don´t want to use predesigned templates. I want to have my website done from scratch. So I will design the layout( header, footer, other elements) in muse and after that use the wordpress CMS.

   Any opinions about this idea? Does it sound like a good idea to do things like this? Is it possible? And if it is, how exact and effective is it.

   Thank you
