I want to install myWebsite.com - which runs a wordpress-blog. Then another Team blog at mysite.com/team-blog and also mysite.com/osqa to have OSQA(OSQA is a forum software) installed.
I tried a lot playing with .htaccess from the past 2 days. But No success! AFAIK this can be achieved with .htaccess redirects.
Another question - Is it a good idea to install - osqa in mysite.com/osqa or have a seperated sub-domain like - osqa.mysite.com I read some old articles saying - having sub-domains is NOT good for SEO and Page-ranks. Is this true even today? And So only I decided to go with folders for each and not creating sub-domains.
AFAIK, Search Engines treat sub-domains as a totally different domain without carrying much Pagerank effects to the domain Parent site.
Please help, all help highly highly appreciated.
