Rightly or wrongly, I built metalpress.co.uk in a sub folder (/wp/) so that the existing html site could remain live throughout the process. Of course I was then faced with the whole moving the site debacle on completion and effectively had to start again when I got it badly wrong at the first attempt and lost all access and, as it appeared, everything!
For urgencies sake I have used a simple .htaccess redirect ("DirectoryIndex /wp/index.php") to the sub folder, which works for now but once into the site all the URL address strings display the mis-rooted directory.
Is there any simple solution to this? Either moving the site out of the sub folder (terrified to try that again!) or affecting the page URLs should I stick with the redirect.
