⚠️ Caution: The following article assumes technical knowledge of web servers and related concepts and terminology.

In most organizations, the person who can perform the steps described in this article will be a web administrator (or similar).

This guide also assumes that you have reverse proxy capability available and set up on your website.

See this article for a general overview of reverse proxying your William blog.

Check out the NGINX example

Step 1. Add your subfolder proxy entry in nginx.conf

Step 2. Open your nging.conf file and add the following entry

server {
listen 80;

location /blog/ {
proxy_set_header Host;
proxy_set_header X-Referrer StoryChief;

The script is rewriting every incoming URL from* to
It also appends a header "X-Referrer": "StoryChief" to the request so StoryChief knows to handle it as a reversed proxy domain.

Step 3. Restart NGINX
