Can Main Blog Page Loop be moved? (8 posts)

    WordPress is going to be in the root directory of my site.

    However, I'd like the homepage (or index.php) to be a static welcoming page. The filename shouldn't change.

    The normal blog mainpage loop would be moved to a page called "writing". That page should do everything index.php normally would do in a typical WordPress blog. The url should be /writing/ -- and I'd also like my archives and permalinks to be nested as such: /writing/2005/22/15/blog-post-name/
    /writing/archives/
    I've tried getting this to work with my .htaccess, but I don't think I'm doing it right, because it doesn't work right. (I get errors).

    I don't want to just put WordPress inside of /writing/ because I still want to be able to make pages outside of /writing/. I also don't want to have to use multiple installations (one outside of /writing/ and one inside) if it is not neccessary.

    Is this possible?

    Just might be the easiest, however, there are other ways.

    I know about that plugin. It doesn't do all that I want above, however. :(

    Why not?

    Because all it does is make a post with the slug of "home" the index page. It seems to just replace the blog - but I still want the blog - just elsewhere.

    I still would like to know how to put the WordPress main blog on "writing/" (and all permalinks and archives to seem nested under writing/) without actually installing WordPress in "writing" - I don't want my other wordpress pages to be under "writing".

    I suppose this is impossible, too? :(
