I am working on a WordPress blog for a client. Currently they have around 3,000 posts.

The WordPress is installed at /blog/

I need to move the WordPress install to the Root directory but still have the Blog posts show up at /blog/ so after I move the blog, all the Post URLs will remain the same.

I have to do this regardless of how I do it this has to be the outcome. I'm hoping for an easier method though.

Any ideas?

  1. Create an empty page with the slug blog.
  2. Go to Settings/Reading and set that page as Posts page.
  3. Go to Settings/Permalinks and set the URL pattern to /blog/%postname%/.

That should do it.
