    Thank you for explaining this! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a long time ( even went so far to contact people who do blog work but it never panned out for one reason or another) I had no idea there was a plugin b/c like you I had googled my heart out and got tons of complicated search results in return.

    That looks like stereotypical man food. Not a bad thing.

    Actually, it looks like what I crave for about 36 hours after a really long workout – meat wrapped in meat.

    Who is your host for your website? I have Blue Host and you can install a separate version of wordpress at the url mealsandmiles.com/wedding and blog from there all you like and link it back to this page pretty easily without messing with FTP or any coding. Not sure about other servers, but it is super easy on Blue Host. Let me know if you need help.

      I’m with Eleven2. How did you do it through Blue Host?

    Awesome explanation!

    I’m curious…how did you get the screenshots embedded into your post? Is it a plugin?

    Download “WP No Category Base” at http://wordpresssupplies.com/wordpress-plugins/no-category-base/

    That will fix your third bullet point. :)

    I logged in to my Blue Host control panel and then clicked on Simple Scripts which is the installer for WordPress. Then I went to install a new WordPress blog, and when it asked for the URL, I typed in what I wanted. In your case, the wedding URL. Once you do that it will create a separate blog for your wedding posts. You would have to format it. Decide if you want it to look exactly like the rest of your blog or a different page. The difference is that it will be its own blog so it wouldn’t show up in people’s readers unless they added the URL mealsandmiles.com/wedding. Once you log back into your main meals and miles blog, create a “page” with the same exact URL, mealsandmiles/wedding (leave it blank and have it display in your tabs) and your blog should redirect automatically to the other “site.”

    *create a page with the same URL mealsandmilea.com/wedding.
    Sorry for the typo.

    Thanks for the explanation! I’ve seen a few bloggers do this and have been meaning to go a little google crazy to figure it out – I’d like to do this with recipes.

    It definitely still shows up in my Reader as a normal post but I think that is fine – in Reader its easier enough to give it a quick click if I’m not interested. And I like having the option to read the post if I have time to kill.

    I love your recipe- reminds me of bacon-wrapped scallops, which are one of my husbands favorite things in the world. Hmm… I might have to make these tonight (I already have all of the ingredients)!

    Im curious…would this same process work for Blogger? I havent been able to figure it out.

      I think the same theory would apply, but I’m not familiar with blogger at all. These directions are for a wordpress blog using the thesis theme.

    Wow – I had no idea it was that complicated! I’m not a blogger and I would not have guessed that it took that much work…

    I don’t like goat cheese so I tried the pinwheels with blue cheese, and they were fantastic, quick and easy – perfect with a veggie for a quick dinner! Thanks!
