WP3 multisite blog directory (5 posts)

    Hi, i was wondering with wordpress 3 multisite if it is possible to have the user created blogs like domain.com/dir/blogname instead of domain.com/blogname :)

  2. Well, you could install your blog in domain.com/dir, but somehow I don't think that's what you want.

    Why do you want the extra dir?

    i was thinking of doing that, but dont want to have to redirect to the dir for the main home blog. Why i want it the way above is because i thought it would look and sound better for my domain "ituned.in" that way user created blogs would be ituned.in/to/blogname :)

  4. Okay, that is an awesome reason ;)

    I think you can do this from Super Admin -> Sites

    Click on the EDIT link for the site (it shows up when you hover over) and change the path to /to/blogname

    But I'm not sure if there's a way to make that automatically fit in, and I'd guess you'd want that. WordPress MultiSite is tetchy about acting as if it's in root, so I know you really can't do the whole 'in a subdir, acting like root' which would really be the prefect fix.

    I'd be tempted to make an external 'splash' page that hooked back into WP, which is in the /to/ subfolder. Depends on the site, though...

    Thanks, thought it would be a unique and nice domain hack/ play on words and good for branding ;) . I've already tried changing the path name in super admin, just get a nice big 404 for the blogs. Looks like i'll have to install into the dir instead then unless there is a way to do it, thanks for your help :)
