[resolved] Multisite Sub-directory Setup (6 posts)

    I was trying to test the multisite setup on my installation and I came up against this issue. Previously while using MU I could install WP at http://my-url/wp-mu, then define individual blogs under this, like http://my-url/wp-mu/skywalker, http://my-url/wp-mu/kenobi etc.

    On 3.0 b2 I have WP installed in the same manner, at http://my-url/wp-ms. However, when I try to add a site called "skywalker", it becomes my_url_wp_msskywalker. Is this a bug or is this something that I botched during my network setup?

    Thanks,
    Sayontan

    Giving WordPress Its Own Directory will not work in WordPress 3.0 with multisite enabled. It interferes with the member blog lookup.

    You're welcome :) I only knew b/c I was looking up the exact same situation earlier today, lol!

    justbishop,

    do you happen to know if the issue is also true using BuddyPress (ie, I am not sure what "member blog lookup" means exactly but it certainly sounds like a problem with users ...)

    Tks

  6. xodigoguy - Doesn't matter if you have BuddyPress or not.

    You cannot "Give WordPress it's Own Directory" with MultiSite.

    Or is that not what you're asking about?
