My WP is installed in a sub-folder, for example: http://www.mysite.com/blog. I want to put an index page in the root (www.mysite.com) that would be mostly static info and images with a list of headlines at the bottom. And, of course, I want the header, sidebar and footer to display.
I have looked at WP codex for "Creating Pages" and "Integrating WordPress with Your Website," but either they don't apply to this or I don't understand them properly. I keep getting error messages that say it failed to stream or find a function like get_header(), or some other file.
So I'm hoping someone can explain how to do this in a very straight forward, step-by-step way, or point me to a simple guide and/or sample. Thanks.
