Ok, so I upgraded to WP1.5 at http://www.denyerec.co.uk and everything looked peachy until I tried to install Vanilla forum.
Because of the mod_rewrite used by WP, everything seems to be processed which breaks any non-absolute URLs.
http://www.denyerec.co.uk/tempstuff would 301 (Permanently moved) because mod-rewrite would try and fiddle with it.
My blog is installed in the top level of my website, and I believe this might be the problem ?
/posts/%post_id% is the formatting I'm applying to the permalinks in the options page, they have been rebuilt since I upgraded and I don't hav a category prefix.
is there any way to prevent WP rewriting everything, and to just re-write WP specific keywords, or am I dooomed and must I move my blog into a /blog/ subfolder?
How difficult is it to move an established blog into a subfolder to mitigate these issues?
Many thanks in advance,
