If you're using Typed.com (our amazing online blogging system!), you might be wondering how you can integrate your blog in to your RapidWeaver site. One way to do that is to use a subdomain.

In this lesson you'll learn how to create a subdomain (blog.your-domain.com) that displays your typed.com blog.

A very clean way to add a sub-domain to point to your Typed.com blog page. The only issues I see with this method is having a reference back to your main site once the visitor has gone to the sub-domain as illustrated in this video (a work-a-round would be to add a website link in your blog page header or footer to go back to the main site as an example). There are other ways to integrate your Typed.com blog, using inStacks Blog Stack and inStacks Typed.com Theme (Manta) or the default Typed.com Theme to pull your blog page content into your actual site without the need to create a sub-domain. However, I do not know if the inStacks Blog Stack will work with other 3rd party Typed.com Theme Developers Themes as Manta was the first and remains the only one I am aware of. Nice video regardless as it shows what and where to do it.

Yep, you could add a link to your typed.com site back to your main site :)

I'm not 100% sure either, as we have only recently added theme support to typed.com, but I'm sure this won't be an issue in the future.
