one of my sites consists of a set of static pages at my top level domain (mysite.com), and a "resources" section that runs on a wordpress install in a subfolder that points to a subdomain (resources.mysite.com). the resources section is a collection of posts, and a custom template that matches my static pages.
i want to move all of the static content into wordpress pages so the entire site will live in wordpress. i would like to maintain the top level domain for my pages and subdomain for my posts.
what is the best way to do this? sorry if there's an answer here already - i wasn't sure how to really search for something this specific.
i was thinking of doing a completely new wp install to a different folder, and exporting/importing/uploading all of my data and files to the new install, so i don't mess up my existing content. then once everything is tested, just pointing my domains to the new folder. only issue is how do i maintain the subdomain for my 'resources' section?
let me know if there's an easier way to do this - maybe i'm over-thinking it?
