comment Best way to redirect site in subdirectory to root?
Thanks Phoenix. I suspect you misunderstood my questions. I apologise if it was not clear enough. Changing the site location in the way you have suggested, was what I'd done already. My issue was that this method does not take existing links (and subsequent 404 errors) into account. I needed a way to deal with 400+ posts suddenly having a 404 error. See my answer below for how I resolved that. Cheers...

I tested your rewrite rule at htaccess.madewithlove.be, and it seems to behave as it should. But no joy on the test server or live site. Am going to ask the host if there is something I am overlooking.

@Sven: Thanks. I seem to be having an issue getting that to work. I am doing this on a local test server, before trying on the live one. Should I put that RewriteRule into the .htaccess of /site/ or the root, or both? If either case, is it necessary to have RewriteBase, and if so, should that be / or /site/? Is there a simple way to test if mod_rewrite is even firing?

Yes, permalink structure will stay the same, although without the "/site/" in front of it. Same host, etc. Just wanting to drop the "/site/" out of the picture for the end user. I have other apps installed in various other subdirectories, so it is important that they don't get redirect (for instance, mydomain.com/owl/ needs to work as per normal.

comment I want to understand plugin implementation of custom posts / taxonomies / metaboxes
Milo, Thanks. That's very helpful to know. I did notice that some of the plugins had more (advanced) options than others, with a "repeater" field being the first one I noticed available on one plugin and not on the others I tried. I will certainly keep this in mind.

comment I want to understand plugin implementation of custom posts / taxonomies / metaboxes
Thank you very much for explaining this so clearly. I'd actually just moments ago started to figure this very info out (not in such detail though) through more digging around, and I was returning to this question to ask if I'd in fact correctly understood the following: so long as I recreate the same TYPE, FIELD, and TAXONOMY with another custom content plugin (in the future) my custom content will in fact be pulled in from the DB. I gather from your answer, I have understood correctly that I should have no issues changing custom content plugins in the future (if they adhere to WP API).

@AahanKrish - Thanks. Done. I agree, it's easier to read and looks neater.
