By default, blogs are displayed using an evoskin. (More on skins in another post.). This means, blogs are accessed through ‘
index.php‘, which loads default parameters from the database and then passes on the display job to a skin.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to use the default DB parameters and want to, say, force a skin, a category or a specific linkblog, you can create a stub file like the provided ‘
a_stub.php‘ and call your blog through this stub instead of index.php . Finally, if you need to do some very specific customizations to your blog, you may use plain templates instead of skins. In this case, call your blog through a full template, like the provided ‘
a_noskin.php‘. If you want to integrate a b2evolution blog into a complex website, you’ll probably want to do it by copy/pasting code from
a_noskin.php into a page of your website. You will find more information in the stub/template files themselves. Open them in a text editor and read the comments in there. Either way, make sure you go to the blogs admin and set the correct access method/URL for your blog. Otherwise, the permalinks will not function properly.
