Moving a WP Blog
Im looking to rename the folder my wordpress blog is in, currently its /horrorblog but i want it to simply be /blog as it looks better and is easier to remember.
When i renamed the folder it mucked everything up. Is there an easy way to do this?
Any help is appreciated.
The site is - Horror Movie News
you can move your blog by doing this:
1) Make a copy of horrorblog into /blog directory
2) Login in Admin /horrorblog/wp-login.php
3) Then Go to Settings > General and change
WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to http://www.horrorwarehouse.com/blog
next is to install a plugin that will redirect old links
I strongly recommend that you enable permalinks.
I use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/redirection/
Many thanks for the help .
Any idea what the plugin is called that i need.
EDIT: Im now locked out of my admin since changing the settings bit to /blog.
Any idea how i get back in?
Did you follow the steps I outlined?
First make a copy and then do the step 2?
The redirection plugin is called "Redirection " I provided a link.
To enable the permalinks you have to go in Settings > Permalinks
just copy you folder to different folder and then rename from the setting by login as admin.
please do the step #1 and then login as yoursite/blog/wp-login.php with your old user/pass combo.
you will have to use FTP client
