    Hello,
    Just installing WordPress with my hosting.
    I have heared conflicting advice on weather to install it on the root or sub directory. i.e. It is more secure if you put as a sub directory but have also read that this is bad for SEO.
    Is any of this accurate?

    At the moment I am planning to use WP for my whole site but would like at least part of the main page to be static & have the blog posts on a different page. (I may just have the most recent post on the main page.) This may change as I learn more etc.

    Any advice would be such a help. I spent last night search the internet & would love a clear answer.
    Thank you.

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    Hello,
    I have a free wordpress blog that i am learning with & my user name is for that. I do not yet have one with my hosting so do not have a user mane with it yet. How can i post in WP.orgs forum to find out this information if i only have a user name with WP.com?

    Thanks.

    The WordPress.ORG Forums are standalone from any install of WordPress.ORG software (or WordPress.COM blog or Forum) – so just amble over to .ORG and open an account – use any name you want –

    PS – the name does not need to be related to what you want to do for a regular URL
