    Thanks for responding. Trying to find out of I'm going to totally wipe out the existence of my current old html site by installing WordPress into a subdirectory under my url... It'd be something like "public/2018... or if this will leave my current site alone. I don't want to hit the history eraser button if you know what I mean. #renandstimpy
    I want to start using a WP theme instead of the old html. I'm not a super tech-guy if you can't already tell.

    @potnoodlez
    Yes they do...Oddly enough Alexa (Amazon Echo) got it right. Now that is technology!

    @G7470
    Before you do anything, take a backup of your site. Zip it up or something and put it somewhere to store in the case things go off.

    my wife is Polish but her maiden name was ellam and people can't even get that right
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    Yes, definitely. But can the two coexist while I monkey around with WP?
    G7470
    @G7470
    It shouldn't wipe out your site so long as you follow WordPress installation instructions. They are quite thorough.

    could you imagine if your last name was Czerw?

    her mom's maiden name was Psonak easy name to pronounce nothing like drozd or raduczewski

    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    G7470- when you say "shouldn't".... have you seen this before?
    I mean .. wiping out?
    G7470
    @G7470
    I have, but that was before WordPress really had their act together with instructions. When I first installed my version, I installed it on the site's root. Which, if you do that...bad things, lol
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    hmmm... ok. I'm assuming there's a "you just screwed up your old site" guide to installing WP on their site.
    G7470
    @G7470
    (That is, if you want to keep the rest of your site together)
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    well stathi you know what they say about assuming
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    Thanks for your help, G7470. I'll see what happens.

    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    G7470 ... if you're still there... any preference for downloading WP to your computer vs. installing it on your site's server and working on it online?... if that makes any sense.
    I'd rather work on it on the hosting server, I suppose.
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    Or anyone else if you know anything about wordpress
    G7470
    @G7470
    For me, I don't really have a preference one way or another. I've done both, and didn't really find any distinct differences between them.

    hi
    Stathi
    @Ellinastathi_twitter
    You get automatic updates via WP if you work off your server, though, correct ?
    sorry, new to all this ... reading as I'm typing.
    G7470
    @G7470
    That's correct, so long as you have that option turned on (which it is by default)
    ccz
    @ccziriak
    @Ellinastathi_twitter - you might be able to get auto update with a local install too - let me check one of my dev accounts
    Doesn't look like it's set that way on any of mine but I think you might be able to set it in wp-config -
    I'd have to test to give a definitive answer.
