Is it possible to have separate pages hosted on a WordPress site?

For example, say I have my site www.website.co.uk, which has my WordPress blog and all that. Obviously it'll have things like www.website.co.uk/blog/.

What I want is to have something like www.website.co.uk/~pages/unrelatedthing where it would read the .css and .js files in that folder and just load them. So I could have www.website.co.uk/~pages/unrelatedthing/index.html. No WordPress or anything.

Basically I have a couple websites, and I don't want to pay for hosting for the lot of them but still want them accessible, so want to shove them under my still-hosted website.


Sure. Just add the subdirectory and then in your .htaccess file (in the base directory) add, before the index.php redirect lines another redirect something like

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteBase /
 RewriteRule ^/otherdirectory/(.*) http://www.yourdomain.com/otherdirectory/$1 [L]

Just make sure you dont have any url's using otherdirectory in your wordpress installation.

    Proposed some edits for clarity, in particular adding / between ^ and otherdirectory because without it I was getting a 'server not found' error.
