Can someone point me to instructions for removing the default /blog/ portion of the URL for the root site in a subdirectory multisite install? I've tried all of the following in this post to no avail:
The permalink structure field in Super Admin > Sites > Edit is blank, so there's no /blog/ item to get rid of. I can add something to this field, which then pretends to work, but all of the URLs simply route back to the home page.
The Remove /blog slug plugin for wpmu works, but none of the URLs it creates actually function -- they all route back to the home page of the root site as well.
I must be missing something -- can someone advise? Thanks.
