External front page (not wordpress) - is this possible? (4 posts)

    Hi guys, i was wondering if the following was possible:

    I have a website that is static and built from scratch (php files) located at http://www.domain.com - What i want to do is install wordpress also in the root directory so that i can have some pages running from WordPress (news etc) and some running themselves (not wordpress), is this possible? I understand you can do static front pages within wordpress but this is still done through the admin panel.

    Reason for doing this is that i don't want to put wordpress in a sub folder because i want some wordpress powered pages to be:

    http://www.domain.com/blue-widgets not http://www.domain.com/subfolder/blue-widgets

    and i also don't want to change any of my code for my front page incase it jeopardizes SERPS

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Alan

    hmm that seemed to return a redundant page "There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page."
