    Hello, I have just recently have had wordpress installed, but are not completely sure how to use it and have many questions about it? I want to be able to make posts on my website, and allow visitors to leave comments on them.If you could answer any of the following questions I would very much appreciate it.

    1.Now that wordpress is installed and wordpress is in php, is my site now in php, or is it still html.

    ie(inkedaffections.com/index.html

    or

    ie(inkedaffections.com/index.php)

    2. How do you make is so you may allow comments to be added to your posts?

    3. Do all sites that use wordpress have a page just like
    inkedaffections.com/blog?

    4.Can you change the above page, and is it necessary to have it?

  2. 1. Your blog is at http://inkedaffections.com/blog/

    2. This is a standard feature. Seems to be working

    3. That's the front page of your blog, which is generally necessary

    4. You can change the appearance of it by using a different theme - see http://themes.wordpress.net/ for a wide selection. Why wouldn't you want it?

    inkedaffections.com/index.html

    for comments etc.

    inkedaffections.com/blog

    WordPress doesn't work like that--it doesn't use index.html, but rather index.php to 'launch'. WordPress is written in PHP so that is why it works that way.

    Originally I installed WordPress in the wordpress folder at your site and put a index.php file in your web-root folder so that WordPress would then act as your 'mainpage'. Subsequently you asked that WordPress be moved to the blog folder. I did that and reinstated your original index.hmtl file.

    With that said, if you want to LINK to your blog, then you need to put a HTML a tag in your index.html to link to inkedaffections.com/blog.

    If you would like your site changed again so visitors see WordPress as your mainpage, meaning when they enter inkedaffections.com in their browser they see WordPress, then please contact me.

    You can upload any number of themes, but there isn't a non-theme choice.
