Not sure if this is really a blogging question or a UVMWEBINFO or even
an IT-DISCUSS (other UVM lists) question.
Anyway, simple answer first: The UVM Web Template is more than happy
to evaluate your PHP files and wrap them in the template. Just don't
name them index.php (that will override magicscript.php, which make
sthe template go). If you want something to act like as dynamic
content for your home page, call it default.php, and it will override
Now, what about WordPress: Lots of steps, and a particularly
interesting index.php placed in a Themes folder -- at least, that's
what I did using WprdPress 1.5 decades ago. See synopsis at
