Preview not working after changing site adress (5 posts)

    Hello everybody!

    Using a pre-existing subdirectory install

    After following this procedure to change my url scheme from

    my_domain_name.de/blog/post_title

    to

    my_domain_name.de/post_title

    without moving the bulk of my WP installation from the /blog folder (except the files mentioned in the how-to) my previews don't work anymore. When I try to preview a draft from the articles page in the dashbord or from the actual editor, I get the 404 not found error for my theme. I changed the .htaccess as described, and I'm at a loss where to even start with this problem.

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Hi,

    My site is also using a pre-existing subdirectory install. I made the changes the same as described in the article. No problems happen. Did you copy and modify the .htaccess and index.php as described?

    I just double checked, and as far as I can tell everything is exactly as described in that article.
