    I know it isn't a big problem for specialists, but if someone can make wordpress working from his own directory (a b2 nightmare), it could be great for poor ignorants ! ;-)

    Sansnom, what do you mean "working from his own directory"? I'm afraid I don't understand the question.

    I'm not really an english speaker ! ;-))
    I mean it could be usefull to have in the readme.html " This release is designed to sit in a wordpress folder " instead of " This release is designed to sit in your root folder ".
    I say that because when you want to put b2 in a b2 folder (everyone make this!) it's hell whith the include's paths. My dream is an index.php which is in the root folder and all the others files in a subfolder called workpress. I think it isn't a minor question for a lot of people.
    You see ?

    As this isn't a supported feature yet, I always have to edit all the code whenever there's a new release. Because:
    /index.php (my index page)
    /m_blog.php (my archives page)
    /wordpress/ (my wordpress directory)
    So I edit my /index.php and include my edited /wordpress/index.php file, edit some other files with variables... personally, I think it's a mess how b2 was originally scripted, and how WordPress builds on that.
    It'd be more flexible if WordPress allowed this out-of-the box, but it doesn't. Yet?

    Hi!
    I was wondering if anybody knew how to make this possible for wp1.5. I did follow the instructions but since the template system has changed it's weird. I thought I would have to tranfer all the template files from the them I am using but then if I move everything to my root folder I will have 2 index files. Not sure if I should rename them. ok I don't know if that makes sense to anyone. Please help!

    Can I request my email is deleted from the above unregistered post. I think it's the cause of all the spam I am getting. I know better now lol.

    Thanks in advance and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask!
