    Hi,

    I tried to set Custom Structure under my wordpress 3.0.1. I found a predefined path called "/blog" is already there and I can't change it. How can I remove or change that path? Thanks a lot.

    Did you install WP in a sub-folder called blog?

    Hi esmi,

    No I don't. I install it on root directory. But I use multisite and domain mapping plugin in that.

  4. The following is from an article featuring Andrea_r (one of our resident multisite experts):

    “There’s a /blog/ in my main blog. Why is it there and how do I remove it?”

    Yes, this is done intentionally so any permalink off the main site does not interfere with any site name in a subfolder setup. You will not see this in a subdomain install.

    You can remove it by editing the main site details under Super Admin -> Sites and editing the main site.

    I actually like to use this to my advantage, and set up a home page for the whole network on the main site, and then use the /blog/ to be the “main” blog on the network.

    Hi James,

    Thanks a lot. I can remove the blog folder even though the Custom Structure still show the /blog folder there. But what I see in the home page, the blog folder is not there anymore.
