    I thought I posted this already, but I cannot find it, so sorry if it's posted twice.

    The name "wordpress" shows up in my blog address. I don't wish to have it there. That is one of the reasons why I choose to use wordpress.org instead of wordpress.com or blogger.com. I wanted to have my own blog name. Why is "wordpress" in my address and how do I get rid of it?

    There is not much on it yet, but here is my blog address. http://visualverse.thecreationspeaks.com/wordpress/

    Thanks!

    Pat

    You will need to move the files from the /Wordpress folder to the root of the directory, then follow these steps - http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL

    Thanks for the link. But it's a little difficult for non-tech people like me to understand.

    It mentions, "Edit wp-config.php" what is a "wp-config.php"?

    It mentions, "Edit functions.php" what is a "functions.php"?

    What are these things and where do I find them?

    Are there easier directions written for non-tech people to understand?

    Thanks!

    I just called my hosting company and they took care of it. Thanks.

  5. Glad you got it fixed! :)

    For anyone just finding this thread, there's a wee bit of a less-confusing guide for this at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_Directories_On_Your_Existing_Server

    That would be helpful to others. It sounds like what the web host rep did for me.

    Thanks,
