Moving blog url creating some redirection issues (5 posts)

    I used to have my wordpress blog at http://domainname.com/blog but moved the parent to http://domainname.com (did not actually move the contents out of the "blog" folder). But for some reason http://domainname.com/blog redirects to a specific post instead of http://domainname.com

    Any ideas what I might need to fix?

    Actually I just made things worse.

    I changed the WordPress URL in settings to http://domainname.com (instead of http://domainname.com/blog) and now I can't log in to the admin console

    I got the blog to work again using the suggestions here http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL , but the redirection issues still stand

    We have the same problem on zarathud:

    Trying to visit the directory where the blog is located actually (by clicking the blog name in the banner, for example) gets you redirected to a specific blog post,
    http://zarathud.org/website/wordpress-themes-ugh/fnords=51

    I've also seen that behavior in the copy of wordpress installed on my laptop.

    My wordpress address is http://zarathud.org/resources-sw/wordpress
    and my blog address is http://zarathud.org. I'm using wordpress 2.9.2 with buddpress, o/c.

    How do you solve this?
