    Rewrite files from sub directory to main directory in Joomla

    I am trying to rewrite the files from the sub-directory www.mywebsite.com/renew (where I built the site) to the main directory www.mywebsite.com (now that I have completed my updates).

    I have moved the files from the /renew directory into the main. Re-written the .config file and the .htaccess file so that when you go to www.mywebsite.com the correct index page displays, however, when you click any link it points to the sub-directory again in the address bar (ie. http://www.mywebsite.com/renew/books-products.html).

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Code:
    #
    # @version $Id: htaccess.txt 13415 2009-11-03 15:53:25Z ian $

    You have moved the files from /renew to your main site. However, you have not change the link in your code. You will have to change the link like books and products still forwards to your "domain/renew/bookandproducts".

    Where in the code do I need to make the updates. How should I change the current links?

    That doesn't work - because this is coming from the menu items. So if Joomla has called on the database to find the article that I want for the to be for this menu item and all of the files are now in the main directory then how come it's not requesting it from the main and not from the sub-directory.

    As you know for menu items in Joomla you do not place a html link in. Am I missing something? Thank you for your help! I am so frustrated with this. :-)
