Moving a blog (2 posts)

    I have a blog, a good blog even, but I'm not happy when I copy and paste the blog thread's.

    I want it to say:
    http://www.mygreatblog.com/&p=1
    where p is post and this is a link to my first post

    Instead it says:
    http://www.mygreatblog.com/subfolderIdontwantshown/&p=1

    I un-installed wordpress, re-installed in the root directory and got a "you have no index file" message, the tech folks could not help me. When I begged for more help, I got nothing.

    So, I'm thinking of moving to BlueHost where they have auto install scripts and supposedly better tech help. Money is not an issue. Time is. I don't want to be down for long periods of time.

    When I created the blog on godaddy.com and transferred it over, I had to be down for 2 months. No real explanation was ever given.

    If you have any experience with moving a blog (I know how to export and import the XML file) - and how to make it happen faster and more smoothly or experience with BlueHost techsupport, I'm eager to hear from you.

    Big thanks in advance. Mike
