Let me start by saying, I am a beginner with just enough knowledge to be dangerous and have encountered an issue I am afraid to go any further with, without guidance.
I am using Network Solutions as a host and have just recently redesigned my site http://www.darkdogcustoms.com using wordpress. My wordpress site is contained in a sub-directory of the htdocs folder called wpsite. I used a tool in Network Solutions that is essentially pointing the homepage to http://www.darkdogcustoms.com/wpsite so that the address bar shows darkdogcustoms.com/wpsite instead of simply darkdogcustoms.com. Of course Network Solutions is horrible for support of any kind, so I was hoping someone on here could assist me with removing the ‘wpsite’ from the web address. My best guess is to follow the instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory under “Using a pre-existing subdirectory install”. Could someone tell me if this what I need to do and will doing this also correct subsequent links that include wpsite in the address that are on the site menu and in text? Also, are there are any additional steps or things to look out for? Our business just received a local award today and I am anticipating lots of website traffic, so I don’t want to do anything that could put the site out of commission for any lengthy period of time.
My apologies for the lengthy post, and possibly not being clear, I am definitely new at this just trying to figure it all out.
