    You must also update the Board URL setting at Options->Basic Board Information at your Acp.

    I know this isn't a direct reply but I would recommend LN Blog. It is still in beta now but it is very well designed, and is built perfectly for XF. Also Jaxel is working on a blog add-on. With these add-ons you wont have to deal with ads, or other fees beyond what you choose to contribute to the developers.

    LNBlog wouldn't work for a landing page, which is what he seems to want.

    Regarding your original question of moving the installation path, that's covered in the FAQ:

    How can I move my installation to a different directory?
    Update the Board URL in the ACP -> Options -> Basic Board Information and move the files to the new directory. You may need to restart the server for the change to take effect.

    As far as I know I don't think he was going to make his blog work as a landing page, and would require XenPorta to do so. Even with using XenPorta, it wouldn't be a blog on the front end.

    He has XenPorta currently installed as his landing page.

    Ampd, was your goal with Wordpress to create a landing page? Or to simply add the blog functionality to your site?

    I took it to be he wanted it as the landing page because he wanted to move directories and put Wordpress on the front; if he just wants a blog LNBlog would be the best option, especially in the long run.

    minor suggestion: get rid of the Help Tab. Make it a subtab of the Forums.
    Are you using WPXenCSS ?
