Navigation issues - need for 301 redirect? (2 posts)

    I'm using a free template, and installed it into its own (wordpress) sub-directory. I've also copied the index.php file from the wordpress sub-directory into the root directory. (I realize there are now 2 index.php files). This should allow me to access the site from http://www.example.com and then navigate through the pages such as http://www.example.com/wordpress/about-us

    But...the way the navigation is written is beyond my understanding, and if you try to move from example.com/wordpress/about-us back to the home page you end up not on http://www.example.com, but instead on http://www.example.com/wordpress/home

    I suspect this might be fixable with a 301 redirect, but not sure how to proceed. Ideally, I'm sure I should just reinstall WP into the root directory but I don't have time for that now (hoping for a quick response here). 2nd choice would be to redirect from http://www.example.com/wordpress/home back to http://www.example.com

    How can I do it?
