Support » Fixing WordPress » Adapting a non WP site. Main site 'entry' pages in separate folders.

  • I have a conventional website I am re-working in WordPress.

    Part of the site has single pages in separate folders on the host server pointing to town specific URL’s. These are very much entry pages into the main site, the menu buttons on these entry pages are external links to the main site.

    How do I adapt these particular pages to comply with WordPress? My concern is it looks on first reading that I require a separate installation of WordPress in each town folder. If I use the work I have done so far it will involve a massive amount of duplication which is not SEO friendly ( the site currently ranks very highly so this is a major concern )

    Do I instead, create my single page town entry pages separately in individual WordPress installations and load these into their required town folders? Or, is there a way of doing this without having these multiple WordPress installations?

    Will you be using mainly Posts or static Pages?

    Hi Esmi

    From the main site which is currently all static, I may want to post in the future but it is not a deal breaker if I don’t.

    For the entry pages they are static pages and will remain so.

    Cheers

    Then I suggest you make use of the Page parent -> child hierarchy. Have a read of http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages

    How does one assign the individual town pages their own unique and separate domain name?

    You can’t unless you use WordPress multisite but that will mean that you will have multiple sites to maintain. See create a network.

    I think that answers my first comment about having a WordPress installation in each of the individual town folders?

    All I have to do now is learn how to install it (them) !
    I will be back just as soon as I am hopelessly lost !
