Often all you need to do is just rename the folder like you would rename a folder on your computer... right click and change the name. If you want to put more than one word in there, remember to separate them with a dash ( - ). It makes it easier for the search engines to see the different words (although many people say they don't have difficulty anyway... it's just a good habit).
The only problem might come from your wordpress installation... since you probably chose to install to the directory "wordpress" when you set it up, it might have hard-written the word "wordpress" in there somewhere. Best bet it just to try changing it and see if everything works. If it seems hunky dory, then hunky dory it is. ;)
As for the redirect on your home page... it depends on where you set up the redirect. If you just created an index.html file and put a PHP or META redirect in there (see https://www.affilorama.com/site-building ... -redirects
)... then just edit the page and change where it says "wordpress". If you've set it up in your htaccess you'll need to go in there and change it. (I've got a lesson on this to add to the lessons section very soon... cheers for the reminder.)
Question: Are you planning to have anything at http://myfavouritecandy.com
, or is the blog the heart and soul of your website? If it's the main part of your website then you should probably have set it up so that it just runs from the root directory. Doesn't really matter though, but if your blog is the main page you'll have to set up 301 redirects in your htaccess to send all the PR and good link juice through to your blog page, because the search engines HATE going through PHP or META redirects. That lesson I'm about to add will show you how to do that.
Wow, I just can't stop writing novels!
