This morning I took it upon myself to move my blog from the directory to the root and then make it appear as if the blog were still in the directory so that the URL would be the same. I began at 10:00am. It is now 2:35pm. With the help of moshu on the WordPress forums and the Search and Replace plug-in (which was in German; I couldn’t get it to appear in English), the move was a success. Now I just have to edit the template files, add some new templates, and then I can create my course pages as blogs and have the URLs be correct.
Time for a break.
