    Wordpress use

    I know there is WordPress and that you can install it from the server. However, I am sure that you can link to wordpress in the head just for the use of one script. Is this right as I cannot find it anywhere on the internet, but I am sure that I done this to an old website which I can no longer find.

    Wordpress is a PHP script that runs on a server with a database. It is installed by uploading to your website, just as any other PHP script or files. When you "install" it, you run an install PHP script that sets-up the structure, files, database, admin settings, etc. If you don't like it, you simply delete it from your website, just like any other PHP scripts.

    It does modify the .htaccess file which does URL rewrites and that affects other scripts that are not part of WordPress. This might give you the idea that WordPress is a whole server thing that you have no control over. That is not true. You can even set up a WordPress blog on your website, located in a sub-directory. That keeps the rest of your website running as normal.

    You might be thinking of JavaScript files, which can indeed be loaded for one particular page. But that is different from Wordpress.

    Thanks all, as my server does not allow me a database I will give up on that.

    Depending on what you’re trying to achieve you could use a CMS that doesn’t require a database, such as Get Simple (or others).
