Multisite with nested urls (3 posts)

    We have a 3.5.2 install with 18 networks with hundreds of blog under each network. Currently, each network is of the form:

    network 1
    blog.foo.com/blog1
    blog.foo.com/blog2
    blog.foo.com/blog3

    network 2
    blog.bar.com/blog4
    blog.bar.com/blog5

    Business would like for us to migrate these blogs from their own subnet to our primary domain for each network with a pattern like:

    network 1
    http://www.foo.com/xxx/yyy/blog1
    http://www.foo.com/xxx/yyy/blog2
    http://www.foo.com/aaa/bbb/blog3

    network 2
    http://www.bar.com/xxx/yyy/blog4
    http://www.bar.com/aaa/bbb/blog5

    Notice: each network will contain multiple prefix paths. The prefix paths will be used to segregate the blog content from the rest of the site and also help with ad targeting / analytic.

    Can someone point me in the correct direction to accomplish this without needing to hack wordpress core.

    Will I need to split each network into a network per prefix path?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    The MultiNetwork Plugins will be the way to go, but moving these is gonna be a piece of work and art.

    How bad would it be to rebuild the site on foo.com? The theory setup would be this:

    foo.com - Main install

    foo.com/xxx - subsite that is also it's own network
    foo.com/yyy (ditto)

    foo.com/xxx/site1 - site#1

    And so on...

    (I'm also not confident that nested, nested sites will work...)
