Adding a CMS to a current webpage

I don't remember how I came across this site, but it might be useful for me, so here's my question.

I already have a website that I've setup for some colleagues and it's made with a program we use here in the company.
But I'd like to add a small piece to the homepage, in in the form of a weblog or so, mentioning what the update is and all that made to the site.

Now my question is then, how to do this with CityDesk? Would I import the html data or file into city desk and then put the CityDesk code at the place where I want the text to go and then each time just ftp it when changes are made?

I hope I've explained it well, but if there are questions, please let me know.

Kind Regards

Can you do a server-side included? That may be better for your needs if your page are automatically generated already.

Then just bring in the stuff CityDesk generates to whatever part using the SSI.

IMHO that's the best way to allow the two programs to continue to work together without over-writing each other.

.. Or you can do it as an inline frame, which doesn't require special server side technology.

Maybe Macromedia Contribute would fit in nicely. Take a look at
