How to make wordpress a blog inside xenforo?
You must also update the Board URL setting at Options->Basic Board Information at your Acp.
you might want to use /community- (xenforo.com is installed in the /community directory).
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.
Thats fine, I will wait for Jaxel's blog addon then. Thanks.
Wordpress is good too.
Google loves wordpress.
Xenpress - http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-wordpress-theme.9163/ demo here
WPXenCSS - http://xenforo.com/community/threads/wordpress-dynamic-theme-wpxencss.12057/
Jaxel's Blog has no ETA.
I'm sure it'll be good.
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.
I was planning on using wordpress as a blog.
minor suggestion: get rid of the Help Tab. Make it a subtab of the Forums.
Are you using WPXenCSS ?
I think this would be nice:
Your wiki is looking good:
Make sure you ask Jaxel what wiki features you want
