Thanks to Farling's excellent Output program, I can get html files for my realm(s).

Can anyone give me some help in setting up a Wordpress site (or other) using these files or is such a thing just not possible? I'd like to create a site for my players in my homebrew world, but I haven't in anything since Geocities...

You can upload static pages to the WP (Wordpress) engine although if you don't know css it can be tricky to make the pages look nice.

If you want old-school with ftp uploading your .html files and free, I ran a little website off of x10hosting.com for a while. A lot of the free sites are bandwidth limited or inject ads, so do your research before you commit to anything.

Also, make sure you don't have 100% copied from original material, you could run afoul of the IP lawyers for whatever game system you're hosting.

Excellent, thanks! And this is all setting for a homebrew, so no worries on the IP.

You can also create a single HTML file containing everything. It might be pretty big, but it would be easier to send to the other players.

I did, briefly, contemplate adding an FTP upload facility to the tool, but then I considered all the different options that would be required to be supported - and adding in username/password processing would always be a security issue.

There is a personal wiki-like tool called TiddlyWiki which is really just a single html file... it does some interesting things. However I can tell you from personal experience that once your file gets to be a couple of hundred meg in size, it is not really viable.
