Seriously, what is with the wp prefix on everything with WordPress. Anyone know an easy-ish was to remove the prefixes from all files without breaking the software?

Is there a general config file?

I don't know what it is, I just don't like having all the prefixes on. Especially folders as I like to change the upload paths ect and it is nice to be able to change the path to the admin area.

And I am nowhere near skilled enough in PHP to create a working blog with all the security features and such like.

Everywhere I look though people are praising Wordpress in every way though. I've tried the free version of ExpressionEngine but it was a little buggy.

Maybe a find and replace. Find 'wp-' and replace with ''. I'd still say though that a) it's pointless and b) unnecessary.

Hi Alex, removing the 'wp-' could also mess up any future plugin installations and WP updates, as the update scripts and install scripts will be referencing the known WP folder/dir locations, it's really not worth the hassle!
