I have done a little website design, and have one short wordpress website up. Now I am trying to convert another website to wordpress. I don't have a lot of computer knowledge, so bear with me if I don't know some of the obvious programming.
I have a similar problem to one I saw in another post: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/webpage-wont-post-preview-page-shows-old-html-site
That was resolved - it seems the poster didn't have index.php.
I do have both index.php and index.html. Do I need to make a new folder to save all my wp and/or .php files? These are in their own files in the root folder. Do I need to move them out of the root folder to be able to see the preview? There is also an option for a new directory.
Thanks for your help.
