    I want to do the following.

    I have a wordpress site and its based on a theme bought from themeforest. It’s mostly a one page website but there is a blog which is not a part of the one page and opens as a multi page.

    I want to create a mini site withing this wordpress site. I can either use a different wordpress theme or use a html5 templates. Is it possible. If there are any steps to follow. I want to retain the as the url.



    So, do you want this mini site to be just the blog (that’s part of the original theme)?

    Or do you want a completely separate site at with a different theme and such?


    Its not a blog. There already is a blog which is based on the main theme.
    Its going to be a totally different site with a different site with a different wordpress theme or a HTML5 pages. Which would be easier. will have links to


    Ok, so then start with putting the files of your site into the directory “minisite” instead of the root (where all your WordPress files are).

    Your WordPress site might think that is actually a page called “minisite” so you probably have to do some additional work in .htaccess file. Something like this should be added above the WordPress stuff:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/minisite/(.*)$ [OR]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [L]

    From a structural point of view though, it might be better to have the WordPress site also in a subdirectory on your root as well, something like this:

      • wordpress/
      • minisite/

    And then following this process, you can make sure that makes the user go to automatically (so you won’t see the “wordpress” in the URL).
