[resolved] Simple root move (5 posts)

    I would like to keep my wordpress files in the subdirectory where they are presently located. BUT, I would like the blog to load when a user goes to my site http://www.bfmcmillen.com. Right now, the url of the site is http://bfmcmillen.com/virtuallee

    Is there a way to simply move the index?

    If there is - will the pagination of my present articles change?

    I have already viewed the codex - but it talks about moving the 'core' files and moving to a new url - things that aren't directly my case. (I think)

    Thank-you

    Does this:

    WordPress allows you to install the WordPress files to a subdirectory, but have your blog exist in the site root.

    Mean this:

    WordPress allows you to install the WordPress files to a subdirectory, but have your blog's index.php exist in the site root.

    Thanks

    Yes...step 7 tells you to copy the index.php to the root.
