Forum Topic: Rewriting URL

Forum: .htaccess Forum : Redirecting • Posted by Mohammed • Updated:


I’m not a tech (graphical designer) and french :)

I do have a wordpress install in a subdirectory as such (and another one at the root level):

All my pages are called through this URL:


What if I need a URL page without /wp-second-install/ but rather knowing there is already another WP intall at the roof level.

Is it possible through HTaccess?

Thanks for you help!

Best regards,

Hi Mohammed,

Yes it should be possible, but first I should recommend just adding the name-of-page to the root WP install.. that would be the easiest solution.

Hi Jeff,

What do you mean by adding name-of-page to the root WP install please?

Can you please post the code of the rewriting? I have ne clue on how to implement it.

I don’t know how the code would work, but you can add pages to either WP install, just visit Pages > Add New.
