Subfolders in wordpress

  • # August 31, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    I have a wordpress installation. I’d like to add on to it by creating a subfolder.
    As you’d imagine I add a folder put a file in it but I get a 404 page.

    Any way to make this work?

    Thanks

    Can you be more specific?

    If you’d like to create new pages from wordpress within a new folder you should create a page with the title that you’d like as your directory and then create child pages to that.

    Otherwise you should be able to create folders within the wordpress root and add files to that.

    Hi Betzster,

    Sorry I struggle to put these things into words.

    I’m looking to add to my martial arts blog. I want to create a section about specific techniques. I don’t want them to appear in the main section or feed. I’d really like to create something like the examples section on css-tricks i.e. http://css-tricks.com/examples/SlotMachineTabs/

    To be honest I don’t know the best way to achieve this. It could be via pages but I’m not certain.

    It would be nice if I could basically split the blog into parts. Like Blog, Techniques etc, so that both parts act like separate blogs but are on the same site.

    Let me know if you’ve got my ramblings.

    Thanks in advance.

    That can be done. If you create a subfolder called “examples” on the root directory, then you should be able to access it without reaching a 404 page.

    I’ve actually done it myself: Example

    I run a wordpress site and I am able to link to the ‘subfolders’.

    Are you sure you are using the correct URL?

    Create a category called “judo” and then create a new post in that category…

    That will create: http://yoursite.com/judo/hip-toss/

    ((not so)Obviously you’ll need to enable permalinks from within WordPress settings to do this)
