We've just redone our company's website and have added a WordPress blog. The site itself is not a WordPress site and was built with a custom CMS by the company that was hired to do the site. We just launched the main site and I'm configuring the WordPress portion.
I've been following the directions at Giving WordPress Its Own Directory and the problem I encounter in those steps is when I'm told to copy and paste the index.php into the websites main directory, we already have an index.php there for the sites homepage.
If I replace the existing index.php we have the blog as the home page. I've tried adding this to the beginning of the existing index.php and it we get the blog as the home page too. Adding in the <head> tag breaks the site, adding it in the <body> adds the blog to the body of our main page and adding it after </body> does nothing.
Is there a certain area that needs to go into? Or do I completely ignore this step in my case?
I've been ignoring it while I search for plug-ins and a theme that will work well for our needs but the problem here is that Post and Page Previews only show the home page for our site.
