    Hello. My wordpress is located at http://www.droptonestudio.com

    I recently changed the URL my blog was located at from /blog/ where the core files still remain, to the root. I updated htaccess and all the pages work fine. I am also using static pages for my front page and blog posts. The problem is that when I try to access the blog page (which happens to be called blog) it gives me a forbidden error. If my core files are located at /blog/ is there no way I can use the page name blog to access the page with posts? I have to change the page to a new name?

    thanks

    You haven’t properly moved your blog. You should follow this instruction Moving WordPress Blog

    or this one moving blog with htaccess 301 redirect

    Yeah, Pages and folders with the same name can screw up your links/navigation.
