    Searched around but couldn't find it . . . Url is by default structured http://www.domain.com/wordpress I don't want wordpress to be in the url but just my domain.com. I could take care of this with forwarding and masking at a domain level but would prefer to do it within wordpress if possible. Anyone???

    Well, by default is NOT example.com/wordpress - only if the user uploads the files into the "wordpress" directory. So, don't blame WP for what you did.

    Here is what the instructions say. if somebody cares to read it:

    If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (but excluding the directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.

    Now, if you are stuck with that folder, you have some options:
    Moving_WordPress
    Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    Funny - in my first 5 min of searching the forums, I saw no less than 4 posts from you Moshu where you got all defensive about what someone had said. I figured you would be the first to jump on this and would have something harsh to say before offering your 2 cents. I appreciate your help but you need to keep in mind that if we were all web developers we wouldn't be using WP in the first place . . . .

    I am not a web developer and if you continue to make personal remarks your posts will be deleted.

    And I am not defensive but offensive with people who don't do their homework. Period.

    Sorry bro - I guess I have forums all wrong. I thought they were for people who wanted help from from those who had run into similar situations before. Let's face it, the answer to everything is out there but not everyone knows where to find it. I searched the forums and help sites and answered all my questions but that one. Ya, it was there all along and for one reason or another I missed it.

    NOT example.com/wordpress - only if the user uploads the files into the "wordpress" directory. So, don't blame WP for what you did.

    Here is what the instructions say. if somebody cares to read it:

    Seriously?? Did those really need to be there or contribute to the answer whatsoever? I don't get the feeling you enjoy your job a whole lot . . .
