Moving index to a separate folder (6 posts)

    Alright, when I used B2 I had moved my index to my root folder, rather then having it sit in the B2 folder. Using instructions obtained from this site, I did the same with WP as well.
    Now I should mention that I had to do a TON of configurations on B2 to get everything working well, just editing a few lines (and inserting the new URL) doesn't seem to cut it because everywhere I go I seem to run into new difficulties that have risen from this. I've been doing a lot of configuring -just on that- since last night, mostly in my admin files, but I'll be one to admit that I'm not an expert in PHP and therefore whenever I edit something, I usually end up messing up something else... Fortunatly that hasn't occured yet...
    Well, to cut the long story short -at the moment- there are two things I can't firgure out how to fix in my site, that are a direct result of changing the location of my index file ( http://mtwib.enlumina.org )
    1 - When you click on comments, and it takes you to Trackback, the URL that is given on the top is "http://mtwib.enlumina.org/wp-trackback.php/3" now the trackbacking itself works fine when using "http://mtwib.enlumina.org/wp/wp-trackback.php/3" but it's just getting that little /WP/ in there that seems to be the difficult task for me, I did go to the comments files, as well as the trackback files AS well as the template-functions file, but I can't seem to find anywhere where I could -stick- that extra /wp/ in...
    2- In admin>templates the first box gives me this error
    " Editing ../index.php
    Oops, no such file exists! Double check the name and try again, merci."
    again, where should I edit, within the text files so that the file is redirected to the root folder...
    I'm thinking that perhaps I should document all of the changes that I've made, just for future reference; unless of course, you know of a place where all of this is documented. :o)
    Thanks.

    Wait till help arrives :) I just wanted to let you know that documenting whatever you did would be a great help to others.

    Gosh, I just noticed #5, I don't know how I -ever- missed that. Now unless I'm really missing something again, I still don't know how to work around Question 2.

    Scratch above- My problems doesn't originate from perma-links, I've fixed that already... The trackback settings seem to be at fault (and I can't seem change those in the admin option, I think I have to dig in the actual coding..) =/

    Note: With some editing in the template-functions.php I solved problem #1 and some others as well (lucky break), I'll document it and post it ASAP. I'll work on 2 later myself.
