Moving blog homepage from directory to root while leaving post urls the same

Viewing 5 replies - 1 through 5 (of 5 total)
  • Hello? Does anybody know anything about this? I can’t be the first person who wanted to have their homepage of their blog appear in the root and the posts in a directory. Even someone saying, “Hey, this is not possible” would be good here.

    Once you move all the site files over you can drop a .htaccess file into it with a redirect rule pointing to the new URL. If the post slugs stay the same they should all point over correctly.

    Thanks Denis for responding.

    I understand that I can put up a 301 redirect, but I would really prefer to keep the urls for the posts the same. Do you know any way to do this?

    Not off hand, not even sure if it’s possible. Any reason why you’d want to keep the original URL but not the directory structure?

    Because I’ve moved this site in a new direction and would like to terminate the previous homepage in the root and substitute it for the blog’s homepage. I just want to switch the address for the blog’s homepage to the root.
