Create a website without shutting down the blog (5 posts)

    I all ready have created a blog in wordpress and now I am thinking of recreating my website in wordpress as well. My website is put together by rvsitebuilder and the reason I am changing to wordpress is because I can easily change the content, images, add/remove items, etc. of the site in wordpress. This is the site here (rvsitebuilder) & the blog here (wordpress).

    My question is how can I "copy" my current site onto wordpress without (1)getting a new account? (2)getting the blog offline?

    I want to keep my current account and I don't want to shut the blog down. Is there a way I can build my site in the backend and then publish the site once completed.

    Thanks in advance.
    Any feedback will be helpful

    Brother you cant use to sort of site in one domain if you want to shift you site to your blogs domain than you have to erase al the content of your blog if you don't want to delete your blog than you have to purchase another domain.

  3. Sure you can do this (ralphmark, I'm afraid you're incorrect).

    Install WP in a subfolder. http://bcrrental.com/newblog

    Set up everythign you want there.

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