Feature Request: Folder for Root Files (4 posts)

    For future WordPress versions, I'd like to suggest that there's a folder/directory called "wp-general" where the root files will be stored.

    The reason for this is, when working in an FTP, it's annoying to have all those files (that hardly anyone ever touches) just laying around taking up space. With a "wp-general" folder, it will create better organization and users will only see 4 main folders/directories: "wp-content", "wp-admin", "wp-includes", and "wp-general".

    I hope this will be taken into consideration when developing the next version. Thanks.

    I vote for moving WordPress Core out of root directory ^^!

    Not sure why the bump, but don't you accomplish the same thing with Giving WordPress Its Own Directory?

    Sorry :( , bump is for wp-general

    I have read this codex article, but I meant "out of root web" for core application: / instead of public_html, http://www...



    WordPress address (URL): /home/myhost/applications/wordpress/
    Blog address (URL): http://myhost/blog/

    In this situation, the point is: think we would need a new param or something like this:
    Wordpress path (PATH): /home/myhost/applications/wordpress/ (or ABSPATH from config)
    WordPress address (URL): http://myhost/blog/ (i guess for... static files, etc...)
    Blog address (URL): http://blog.myhost/

    Well, just a small suggestion... ;)


    PD: Umm... actually I don't know if it's possible right now. I think about the issues of ABSPATH out of /www/
