Before I start.
I have looked, read, and digested all the documents about running WordPress in a sub-directory. I have searched this forum and Google for an answer to no avail. Here is my problem.
I need to run two installs of WordPress. One is in a directory called 'en' the other in a directory called 'fr' (I think you may see where this is going).
Using one install for English and one for French sprinkle some metadata juice and template hacking and I have the ability to run a multilingual site with links between the pages (no posts for this site just pages). The databases are separate (one english_site, the other french_site)
Everything works as it should - but one problem - the url's
We like clean URL's and have the site looks like this:
What we would need is:
The content of the site is duplicated in each individual install, but of course the page_names are different (English and French)
All that said what I would love to do it take the usual htaccess file (with works fine and is created by WordPress) and just strip out/hide/remove the 'en' and 'fr' that appears in the URL. I have tried numerous solutions on this forum - with no results, just 404 pages.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the time.
