Hi guys, would love to get some opinions on this.
I have my portfolio site built in straight HTML (I know, I created it before I knew anything about WP), and have a decent blog running on WordPress in a subfolder called '/blog'.
I want to get my HTML site moved over to WordPress, and have a different theme for the site versus the blog, so I have a few questions:
- Would it be better to setup a multisite WP install, or would a separate WP install in the root directory be ok? I want to be able to pull in posts from the blog into the main site, so I'm thinking that multiple separate installs might not accommodate this.
- If a multisite install is preferable, what's the best way to go about doing this? Would I need to take my existing WP install at /blog, and move it up to the root folder, before re-setting up my blog install, and migrating that content back? Seems like a really redundant process
- What might be the SEO implications of whichever methods you guys suggest? I don't want to lose what precious little ranking I've managed to carve out so far...
I appreciate your thoughts!
