Confused about WordPress setup

  • # January 28, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    Hello, I’m creating a WordPress-powered site and I’m just wondering what the best way is to go about this. The site won’t be 100% blog, the home page will display the latest 5 posts and there will be a blog section that will have the archive, comments etc. There will be two other static (more or less) pages that don’t need any WordPress functionality. Should I build the whole site on WordPress? Where should I install it? The main html directory or in the blog directory then call the latest posts on the homepage?

    I would build the whole site in WordPress. I just completed my first real wordpress build and found the system to work really well as a cms.

    This video helped me out quite a bit: … -as-a-cms/
