Subfolder Multisite Dashboard not working (11 posts)

    I've been fighting with this for 2 days so hopefully someone can offer a suggestion or three.

    I configured Multisite using subfolders. When I create a site the site is visible but the new site's dashboard loses all formatting and I get a blank page when I click on any of the links in the dashboard. My primary site's dashboard is still working.

    I am using Network Solutions to host the site, but do not believe it is a hosting issue since the main page for the new site is working.

    After scouring this site a bit more I decided to reinstall WordPress with a new database. This time I configured sub-domains. I have wildcard DNS in place and can ping any host within my domain, yet the website is still not responding.

    While I am no WordPress expert like some of you are I have run several sites on WordPress for approximately 5 years, so I am not a total rookie.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  3. 1) What's in your .htaccess ?

    2) Did you delete the theme Twenty Fourteen? (NOTE, I'm asking IF you deleted it, I'm not telling you TO delete it. Don't delete it.)

    Sorry to take so long to reply Ipstenu. It's been a busy week!

    After my last failure with Multisite I deleted the site and the database and built a new site. As yet I have not even tried to enable Multisite.

    Before doing so I have a question. Does Multisite work when WordPress it not installed in the main directory?

    I host several sites on Network Solutions and each of my sites is in a subdirectory under my hosting package.

    BTW, I did not delete the 2014 theme.

    Thank you in advance!

  5. Does Multisite work when WordPress it not installed in the main directory?

    Yes.

    I host several sites on Network Solutions and each of my sites is in a subdirectory under my hosting package.

    Separate domains? So they're like /public_html/domain.com ?

    That's fine :)

    From a fresh install of WordPress here is what I have in my .htaccess file when I change to multi-site.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
  7. Okay, and you followed the rest of the directions?

    I feel like I'm in the exact same boat here. The sub-site dashboards appear to be un-styled (displaying all li's) and links don't work.

    Yep. That's exactly what I get.
