Hi I have recently started using magneto think it’s really good. However I am a little stumped now as I want to add a blog. What is the best way to go about this? Is there any kind of plug-in already made??? Any ideas would be appreciated or even any example of peoples magneto sites with blogs integrated into them already.

There’s a couple of options using magento connect - a wordpress integration and a stand alone blog that can be run from the admin.

There’s a wordpress integration available here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/296/lazzymonks-wordpress-integration

I haven’t used it myself, so I’m not sure just how integrated it is.

If you are just looking for a listings of recent blog posts to add somewhere as a block, that’s a pretty easy “integration” -
However a full integration is potentially pretty complex, and lazymonk’s solution that I linked above has mixed reviews.
