I needed to different logins for my site so my solution was to create two different blogs in the www folder of wamp. nlcc/blog Blog being wordpress and forum/inform with inform being wordpress. Each has it's own config.php files. (was this right or should I have just put inform in nlcc folder?) NLCC is the main site folder which connects to the blog. Forum folder has nothing but the inform folder in it.
In my custom theme I had to specify http://localhost/nlcc/blog/..... or http://localhost/forum/inform/.... to navigate from one folder to the other.
For the Question? When I launch next week what do I need to change the url to? Is it just localhost to my site url www. nlccenter .com or is something else better?
Thanks for your help.

When your site goes live you won't be able to use http://localhost to reference any files on your server from an outside location. Meaning, if you're attempting to reference a server location or file location from within the local server, then using localhost will work just fine. However, if you're attempting to access something from an outside location you'll need a qualified URL to access the data. http://82.123.456.789/your_file or http://domain.com/your_file.
