    You need to install WordPress in a sub-folder. You cannot run a WP site without that index.php core file. Are you planning to replace your old CMS at a later date?

    No I am not planning on replacing the old CMS later. I was pretty sure that I could not do what I wanted to do. I just thought I might see if anyone out there had a way of doing what I want to do.

    OK Thank You for your time!!!
