AboutWP-Blog is a RapidWeaver pagestyle plugin that allows you to have a blog page that is powered by WordPress using stock RapidWeaver themes. It will only work with self-hosted WordPress blogs that resides on the same server as the main RapidWeaver site and not if you have a blog that is hosted at wordpress.com. It is also NOT yet another blogging software that allows you to post to your blog from inside RapidWeaver. There are plenty of good software for doing that already.
FeaturesAll you have to do to have a WordPress blog as part of your RapidWeaver site is to configure the features you want to enable on your blog and it will look just like the built-in blog in RapidWeaver. No modifications are needed to the RapidWeaver theme to take full advantage of WP-Blog (as long as it is a theme for RapidWeaver v3.6 or newer).
