I have searched the threads and cannot seem to find either a definitive solution or an exact situation, so I decided I would write the post so the experts can see exactly what I am trying to do and perhaps offer the solution I am trying to find.
I am converting my main site over to wordpress. In addition to the main site, I have several installations of wordpress which were interlinked to the main site.
Now, I am trying to link from the new wordpress pages menu (using MU) to the existing installations, directly through the main menu on the main installation.
Domain - http://immunocal.md
Wanting to create dropdown series under the menu button "Immunocal" (which has the permalink; http://immunocal.md/immunocal). When I create a page named "prostate_cancer" under "Immunocal" as the parent the new page URL is forced to become; http://immunocal.md/immunocal/prostate_cancer
But, what I am actually trying to do is link directly to another installation with prostate_cancer as the folder, so I have to remove the "immunocal/" part of the URL so that it will call up the other blog, which has the URL http://immunocal.md/prostate_cancer - So, as you can see the permalink is inserting the parent page first and it will not link over.
I read about a plugin that used to be available... I read that there used to be a way to remove the /blog slug, but that is not possible because of a bug, etc... So, I am writing today to see if there is any new information available and hoping to find a solution to this problem.
