This WordPress document was very helpful in moving things around on my site, although I still have a lot of residual tweaking to do. Basically, my website that I've had for the last three years or so had the WordPress logic parked on the main page, and I wanted to move it, to make a blank, bare-bones HTML start page, to link either to the blog or to other areas of the site. The webcomic, alas, is no longer the end-all be-all of stuff I've been working on, so I wanted to marginalize it a little and focus on other things.
The base site is still the same: dscomic.com
The wordpress site will now be: dscomic.com/wordpress and will be linked from the main page.
I'm seeing a lot of strange things with images and hyperlinks, so I've still got some work to do, but so far I'm happy with the changes.
