Well, I did it and it worked. Who knew it was so simple?
Well at first the plan was that I wouldn't relate on the installation that's installed on wordpress's user directory, but I suppose it doesn't really matter in the end. Now I can have a hub page linking to multiples sub-directory (for different projects) all I want.
I ran into some problems, but nothing that wasn't easily fixable.
If people google this problem and find this, here's to help you:
- So yeah, at the root of the installation I simply made a blog folder and put everything there
- Oops, did you forget to change the site's url in the config? No problems, in your wp-config.php add:
define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://site.net/blog' );
define( 'WP_HOME', 'http://site.net/blog' );
(not my real site url)
- Some stuff will be broken, I don't know if it's necessary anymore, but the plugin "Velvet Blues Update URLs" might helps here. Just be sure to put the right old URL and right new URL or else it can break things even more
- Go to settings > permalink and just click save changes. If it gives you an error, it gives you what to put in the .htaccess manually (Which you could also have forgotten to move, check the previous folder with ll instead of ls, it should show the hidden files)
- For some reasons, if your used your theme settings to upload a background or more, the url might be broken. Just reupload your stuff in your theme settings and it should be fine
That's about it
