I have installed wordpress in a sub-directory /wordpress and built an entire website within.
I am now pushing the site live and instead of updating all images and links after moving wordpress into the root directory, I decided to try leaving wordpress in /wordpress and changing the site URL to /
This seems to have worked well (after copying index.php into root) however, I have one major problem:
All links that have been inserted within posts still have /wordpress in them which all now redirect to a 404 page.
Am I missing something?
The whole reason I didn't move the whole site into the root directory was because I didn't want to have to update all the URL's and image links however it appears that I still have to, sort of defeating the purpose?
Is this correct behaviour? What is the easiest solution without updating every post?
