Thanks! I appreciate it. I actually HAD it set that way originally, but Jason said that it wouldn't work with many of the WA extenstions, including the one I wanted to use at the moment (Menu Writer) because some of the files have to be in the root.
My problem now is that I went ahead and broke the sites in two so powerstore would have its own root folder. However, copying the powerstore files from the previous configuration (existingsite/store/) into its own root folder apparently maintained some of the strings and/or paths in some of the files because I get all these old paths and I can't fine where to change them. I'm hoping I don't have to start from scratch and reinstall powerstore and start all over, but I am starting to think that's what they are going to tell me. One single page refers to the old path quite a few times, I don't know how I would change them all if I can't do it in the globals file.
But again, thank you. It is always nice to know that there are people out there helping each other...it is invaluable.
