[resolved] Can't find Front Page (6 posts)

    Prior to installing WordPress and starting a WP site, I have an iWeb site installed at just host.com. I started off with WP by installing the Colorway Theme. I created a test WP page, but when I click the 'home' link it takes me to my old iWeb home page instead of the Colorway Front Page. As a new WP user, I need help, and have spent several hours looking at the Dashboard and reading forums and help literature. Help!
    I don't wish to delete my iWeb site as it is still active. I made a similar enquiry on the Colorway forum but no response.

    You need to install WordPress in a sub-folder of your domain until you want to take the old site down.

    Does that mean I should trash and then reinstall WordPress? ie in this new sub-folder?
    (no problem doing this, just want to be sure)

    (re kailas; web address is alkpurusha.net, but no WP elements are there, only iWeb)

    Yes. Delete WordPress and empty the database. Then upload WP to a sub-folder and re-run the install.
