So, I've read a bunch of different posts/tips, but still seem unable to grasp what I need to do. I want to have WordPress power my site, have a static front page and have all of my posts at mydomain.com/blog.
What I've done so far...
1) I followed the tips on moving the WordPress files to a different location. I put everything under mydomain.com/wp and updated the options accordingly.
2) I've added a home.php page in my theme directory for my static home page. I know there is the built-in option to use an existing page, but I think I prefer the home.php way ...
3) Created a blog directory and copied the index.php and updated the require statement...but I just get a 404 error.
So, either 1) it's not possible, 2) there is a simple fix, or 3) i'm just dense =)
I appreciate any help/suggestions.
