I am having trouble creating a page that would reside in a different folder than my blog.
What I am trying to do is not a typical WordPress page. It would be mostly static info and images with a list of headlines at the bottom. And, of course, I want the header, sidebar and footer to display.
My WP is installed in a sub-folder, for example: http://www.example.com/blog. I want to put these pages in the root (www.example.com) and/or some other folder (www.example.com/other).
I have looked at WP codex for "Creating Pages" and "Integrating WordPress with Your Website," but either they don't apply to this or I don't understand them properly. I keep getting error messages that say it failed to stream or find a function like get_header(), or some other file.
So I'm hoping someone can explain how to do this in a very straight forward, step-by-step way, or point me to a simple guide and/or sample.
p.s. I am able to this without problem while using my current theme. But I encounter the problem when I try to upgrade to a new theme, so I'm pretty sure the problem has something to do with the theme structure. My old theme is pretty old and does not use the structure of modern themes, which is part of the reason I'm upgrading. The new theme I am testing is Typograph, which appears to follow the modern theme standards.
