Htaccess help please
I've tried a few different ways of writing a .htaccess file, found online, but can't get them to do what I want. I'm no web developer, so need to some expert help...
I have a lot of folders at the root of my website, one of which contains my Wordpress site.
At the moment, I use meta refresh in the index.html file to take visitors to my wordpress site.
I've tried using .htaccess in the root folder, redirecting visitors from the index.html file to the Wordpress folder, but it messes up the links to other folders, like my other blog, a folder and a subdomain. If I enter the URLs for pages in those folders, the visitor gets redirected to my Wordpress site.
Could someone tell me what I can put in the .htaccess file, please? It needs to ignore all folders and just take visitors to my Wordpress site.

Search the wordpress help documentations, one time I saw a doc chapter describing how to transparently set up wordpress in a subdirectory.

Thought I'd just update this thread. You need to modify the WP .htaccess file in the root directory
