[resolved] Putting WP in /articles folder (5 posts)

    I don't know if this is possible...

    I would like my WordPress installation to be based out of http://mydomain/articles. This is easy, I just unzip to that folder.

    But I would also like some WordPress pages to be accessible from the root, eg.

    /articles -> main blog with pages, posts, etc.
    / -> goes to a static page
    /about -> goes to a static page
    ...

    Ideally, I want a few static pages outside /articles, and the rest of my blog inside; but is this possible?

    If you'd rather have "external" pages rather than use WordPress to maintain your About page, it is possible but harder. You have to duplicate your navigation. Eventually it will become a headache.

    If you haven't upgraded yet, try 2.5.1 and look at the features for a static home page and blog page.

    Thanks, I'll check it out (again). Can you explain a bit how I can use static home pages? I see that I can have a page or a few pages with links to each other; but how will I route the main blog to /articles?

    What is there to explain? It is in your won admin panel under Settings > Reading: you select an existing Page as your frontpage and another one as your "posts page". If your posts Page has the title "Articles" - you are good to go.

    I meant "blog page," not home page; but anyhow, I think I've figured out how to do what I want ... looks like it'll be a case of trying to share navigation among static HTML and WordPress.
