My own practice is to use a folder for the blog only where the site is already a static html site or where I need it to be static at the outset.
Has anyone ever intalled WP @ root and found that that decision made life thereafter increasingly complex as "the blog website" grew?
Anyone have a tale of woe or cautionary tale?
Is there a compelling reason to opt for installation @ root? "Yes, do that IF . . . "?
I'm pretty much convinced that all installations should be in their own directory and not @ root . . except . . I have to wonder about the future evolution of WP. At some point its development may deflect more towards CMS than strictly blog. Maybe never, but never say never - right? :)
Alrighty, sub-directory it is . . unless a force of nature arrives to alter the landscape. You out there, Ms. or Mr. Force of Nature? :)
You can also make your website in wordpress as a CMS where you put it in root but you can use a "page" as the front page and point the blog to a section within it under options. The combination of "pages" and posts can make a website with a blog all content managed.
