Where are files stored? (5 posts)

    I have recently installed wordpress and I am wondering where posts I create are stored. I have to link another part of my website to each posting in its own dynamic sort-of-way. It seems as though they are not stored in their own files, which will make this a bit tougher, but i really just need to know is where the text that is created by the user is stored so i can extract it or make a pointer to it.

    Thank you in advance to all that can help,

    Your posts are stored in the db.

    But you don't care, as they all have a URL. WP takes care of the fetchin' and formattin'.

    If you'd like to elaborate on:

    perhaps we can offer some ideas or suggestions.

    Trad, do you mean that you want to try to link a post with a relative path?

    I'm curious about this too. Where is the actual text for the blog post stored? What's the name of the file and the folder I can find it in?

    It's in your database. Use phpMyAdmin to look at your wp_posts table.
