    – Approximately three years ago I installed WordPress on our website in: directory, intending to create a blog in:
    – I ran into some installation difficulty (or some other difficulty, I do not now remember) and reinstalled WordPress in:
    http://www.studiopatrice/wordpress2/ directory. But, I believe, that did not solve any problems then, so I gave up for the time being on creating a blog
    – A year later, I decided to try again, this time putting the blog in our news bulletin: Again I ran into some difficulty (what I do not now know) and again I gave up on the blog
    – Fast forward to today – I am told that I can create a new website using WordPress on
    – was originally created with NotePad using HTML code over 10 years ago. It now looks outdated, unprofessional and would be extremely difficult and time consuming to modify. I would like to create a new, temporary website at with WordPress, until I can learn how to use DreamWeaver to create a new modified website.
    – The Problem: I Can Not Modify the Template Themes! Every time I change the Theme in Appearance on the WordPress Dashboard, I get a blank webpage at And the blog TRIES to appear in the directory. (I also updated the WordPress software yesterday to the latest version)
    – I Now Have the wp-admin, wp-content & wp-include directories in EACH of the following directories: (Where the dashboard works)

    – I believe I should delete the wordpress2 directory
    – The Changes I make are only being made in the wordpress directory, but not in the on-fine-art directory (As noted in my webhosting file manager)
    – My General Setting in my Dashboard is as follows:
    WordPress Address (URL):
    Site Address (URL):
    – Why does the blog, with the updated themes, not appear in the on-fine-art/blog/ directory until I revert back to the original theme (“Twenty Ten”)?
    – After I get the themes to work and have selected my desired theme, will I be able to create a new website on using WordPress and have a separate WordPress blog in the on-fine-art/blog directory. In other words, can I have two or more websites and a blog appearing in the WordPress dashboard?
