How does Migrating sites affect RSS Feed (3 posts)

    I migrated my wordpress blog from my root path on my server to a sub-folder ~/wp and was wondering how this would affect my RSS feed. Is there anyway that I can keep my feed as-is without needing all of my subscribers to re-subscribe? Or do I need to tell them all of the new sub-folder? My main domain will have a URL redirect to the ~/wp folder so that entering my domain url sends them to http://scionwest.net/wp. I wanted to clean up my root and didn't think about how this would affect the RSS feeds that are associated with it.

    I've currently left the old wp install at scionwest.net and installed a new one in ~/wp that already has all the content imported and the new theme and everything setup. Just don't want to setup the URL redirect until I have the RSS feed issue resolved.

    Any input would be appreciated!

    changing to subdomain will move your feed address too .

    @scionwest: You're making things too difficult. If you want to clean up the root directory, give WordPress its own directory and there will be no need to move the feed or redirect users to it. WordPress and all URLs will appear to be in root while all WP files will be in /wp/ See Giving WordPress Its Own Directory « WordPress Codex
