This is somewhat of a hack:
I am using your plug-in in an attmept to create a static web site using WordPress pages. With your plug-in I can create physical folders and .html pages so I would prefer to do that off of the root directory
This allows me to:
1. use wordpress as a CMS to generate static html files.
2. point subdomains or other domain names to physical folders within the root domain
I can create domainname/folder1/index.html and domainname/folder2/index.html. Once these folders and files exist then I simply point 2 new domain names at folder1 and folder2 as those index pages become the home pages for those additional domains.
3. I can then manage multiple web sites with only 1 install of wordpress.
This solution addresses of the BIGGEST issues with WordPress - no static files and the need to create so many installations of wordpress to manage multiple domain names that use the same themes etc.
Also I assume you would like to have the option to choose to create static .php pages so you could still execute php server code/plugins.
Perhaps a static page builder plugin exists and I am missing it?
Is a well known hack to force WP to "write" folders/pages to the server?
If so please let me know. The lack of static pages from WP is the only keeping MT in the game IMO.
This is probably not a solution for wordpress.com hosted sites but it seems that this ability IS BADLY NEEDED and should be available for those that are hosting WP on their own servers.
