Joomla & Fantastico & WordPress (1 post)

    Right now, I have a website, http://www.anxietyinteens.com, using Joomla

    I wanted to add a blog to this site using WP (but still using joomla for the whole site), so I decided to go with WP.com and use: http://www.anxietyinteens.wordpress.com (since, of course, I couldn't use WP.org as I am already using http://www.anxietyinteens.com).

    Using Fantastico and reading the tutorial, I see that there is a way that I can get users to see "www.anxietyinteens.com/blog" (instead of what it is now, making people go to an entirely new site by just a re-direct to a very visible url of: "www.anxietyinteens.wordpress.com" when they click the blog tab) without using a cloak tool!

    "Install in directory
    If you would like to install WordPress into a sub directory, enter that here. For example, if your domain is domain.com and you want your blog accessed via domain.com/blog, then type blog here. If you would like your blog accessed by simply going to domain.com, then leave this field blank."

    So, I went ahead and typed in "blog" in the Fantastico "Install in directory" entry, and Fantastico created that sub-directory for me.

    I also went into Joomla and tried to delete the external re-direct of "www.anxietyinteens.wordpress.com" to --> "www.anxietyinteens.com/blog" when they click on the tab.

    But, something is not working. When I type in "www.anxietyinteens.com/blog," this is what the browser tells me:

    This webpage has a redirect loop.
    The webpage at http://www.anxietyinteens.com/blog/ has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

    Anyone have any ideas?!

    Thank you!
