I have a blog that was setup in
example.org/blog/ many years ago, so all its files are in
/blog/. Back then it seemed like a good idea, but now we want to slowly get rid of the subfolder.
Of course I could move the installation to the root folder
/, change the wordpress url in option and just move everything, add a htaccess redirect from
/* so old links still work.
But we want to do it slowly because moving all the content at once would be a major risk and possible desaster for the Google rankings and traffic. 301/302 redirects are fine, but Google is not very happy if you move thousands of articles at once while the links stay the same. So new content first, then old stuff.
Is there any way to only publish new posts and pages in
example.org/ instead of
I'm capable of all kinds of hacks. I already have several blogs running with the Wordpress installation in subfolders, have redirected and moved blogs all over the place and written scripts to change the values of all rows in a database table. Bring it on :)
