Building WP in subdirectory - question about internal links (1 post)

    I'm transition an old site to wordpress, and in order to keep the old site live while I build the wordpress site, I installed wordpress in a subdirectory and then plan to transition using these instructions:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory#Using_a_pre-existing_subdirectory_install

    So right now, all of the wordpress pages are of the form:

    site.org/wordpress/...

    but after the transition, they will be:

    site.org/...

    When I make a link to another page within the site within wordpress (while I'm building the site, before I've made the transition), I believe it should take the form

    site.org/page

    and not

    site.org/wordpress/page

    That is, the link should be to the URL *as it will be* after I've followed the instructions at the link above, not *as it is* while I'm building the site. Is this correct?
