I've got a Wordpress backed site along with a theme which has a webpage &lifier your blog page. I wish to possess the domain indicate your blog page using the URL within the address bar altering to http://example.com/blog

First I attempted the Configurations-->Reading in Wordpress and transformed to some static page pointing to blog however the URL within the address bar used just the domain http://example.com

Next I attempted using mod_rewrite &lifier mod_alias during my .htaccess file. It really works to redirect the primary page however when attempting to preview posts and pages it does not work. The Web addresses for that preview seem like so http://example.com/blog/?p=55&preview=true

Is applying the RewriteMatch the easiest method to do that or must i be utilising RewriteCond &lifier RewriteRule?

Any help could be greatly appreciated.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteBase /
   RewriteRule ^$ /wp_core/index.php [L]
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
   RewriteRule .* /wp_core/index.php [L]
   RedirectMatch 301 ^/$ http://example.com/blog/
</IfModule>

That you can do everything using blogging platforms configurations, you don't need to tweak your .htaccess.

On Wordpress-Admin->Settings->Reading, you are able to choose an specific page for your house. For those who have produced already your blog page, you simply choose it around the drop-lower menu.

Just in case you've problems to obtain the spot for these setting: http://YOURDOMAIN.com/wp-admin/options-reading.php

Also, in case your website includes a different visual, you will need to create around the page a custom page-template. I can not let you know 100% how to proceed since it is dependent how your theme is coded.

Ah, if you wish to have your website under /blog/, you will need to improve your permalink configurations too.
