    Hi
    I have install the wordpress in the root of my website , which works fine. I have created a customize theme also.

    But now I want to create a page in a sub folder in the root of my website , name " portfolio" , so how can i get the full template applied to those pages in the portfolio folder. ??

    Regards
    Sam

    I'm not really understanding what you mean. You want to apply a design to a page in a folder outside of WordPress?

    You probably just need to do that in dreamweaver or similar, otherwise try and state your question again as I am not understanding.

    Don't you mean you want a WordPress Page? It's static and does not display WordPress posts.

    Be sure you have pretty permalinks on (so your pages would look like this: http://yourserver.com/static-page/), and then create a new page. Give it the slug portfolio. You can then access it using the URI: http://yourserver.com/portfolio/

    Is that what you mean?

    It may be that mod_rewrite is turned off on your server? That causes WP to reject any URI that doesn't also have /index.php/ sandwiched in there. I believe there's a thread about it, just search for keywords index.php and permalinks.
