Looking for a php blog engine/plugin for section on website


Staff member
I'm looking to make one section on a website a blog and looking for suggestions on what's best to use. I'm not interested in a complete website/cms package like wordpress, I just want something to handle the backend (preferably php/mysql based) to keep track of posts, comments, users, and handle feeds, etc.

The rest of the website is using php includes, so what I really want to be able to do is just include("blog.php"); and have it return a list of teasers, to click through for full article. A tag list would be useful as well.

Anything around like this or am I going to have to write it myself or use wordpress or similar?
