This is kinda driving me nuts, I've almost got it right about 4 times now but not quite there :)
Here's what I want. (using "Page" capitalised to mean WP Page)
http://www.mydomain.com/my-blog/ - all blog only stuff under here
http://www.mydomain.com/ - static home Page
http://www.mydomain.com/services/ - static services Page
http://www.mydomain.com/contact-us/ - static contact us Page
http://www.mydomain.com/articles/xyz1/ - more static pages
http://www.mydomain.com/articles/xyz2/ - more static pages
I don't care whether WP is installed at /my-blog/ or in the root directory, either is fine, so long as root goes to the static home page, and /my-blog/ goes to the front of the blog, with all external-facing blog stuff (categories, etc) there.
Can anyone tell me what settings I should be using to set this up?
