Is Nimblehost - the author of Armadillo - not able to help? I’ve heard their support is excellent if you haven’t tried that route yet.

The only Google blog I know of is Blogger. It is possible to include a Blogger blog in your Rapidweaver site using a plugin called RapidBlog but although that’s working fine on a few of my sites I don’t think that Yourhead (which now owns RapidBlog) is planning to develop it any further. @isaiah will be along I’m sure and give you chapter and verse.

Does it have to be a Google blog though? The Tumblr blog is free, works well and can be added to a RW site using either Will Woodgate’s free MicroBlog stack or Joe Workman’s Tumblr stack.

Hope you’re able to sort it out.

It’s perfectly possible to add the Google Blogger page to your site - I do it here http://www.westernwaychapel.org/ and here http://wyeinvader.uk/offsite-2/blog/ using the News Grid Stack - https://rapidweavercommunity.com/addons/stacks/news-grid

Dont you use rapidblog then ? And Can you still do it from example a phone as normally with This stack too

No, just the News Grid Stack, Yes works fine on phone. Clicking any title on a displayed post will take you to the Google Blogger page.

But i only want it to stay on the website NOT going to Google blogger Which is possible with rapidblog or do i misunderstand

I just wish my armadillo worked

The Stack has many options, clicking the title or ‘Read More’ can be set to open in a new tab keeping your original website page open - for just a few Euros it could be worth a try to keep your blog displayed on your website.

Another reason to love this forum. I bought News Grid in a bundle a few years back and have never used it. This stack will be perfect for an upcoming project. Cheers @DaveFox
