The default permalink structure for my site is /groop/ in front of everything. I need to change the author url from /groop/author/ to just /author/ (removing the /groop).
This can be done by editing the rewrite.php in the includes folder, but I need a way where the site can be upgraded without problems.
wp_rewrite seems the way to go, but I have only been able to change the default author root url (the "author" part) and not the full base url. So i have been able to change it to "/groop/whatever/" but not to just "/whatever/". Will wp_rewrite even do this?
