After running a test site in a sub-directory of another domain, I successfully moved the site into the root in order to run multi-site.
Then I (finally) successfully moved this test installation to the real domain.
After much frustration, it seems that everything is finally working, except for one thing: The Permalink structure shows up incorrectly on the Admin page of the main blog. The main blog sits in the root directory, and actual permalinks (/%postname%/) are rendered correctly on the site. Permalinks of sub-sites are also rendered correctly.
However, on the Admin page for Permalink structure, this is what I get:
Day and name http://ssnet.org/blog/2011/06/02/sample-post/
Month and name http://ssnet.org/blog/2011/06/sample-post/
Custom Structure /blog /%postname%/`
I have tried to find that elusive "blog" word in all sorts of places, including the whole databse. (I got experience editing it manually in this move!) However, I cannot find it.
From where would the Admin page pull this errant sub-directory specification?
Someone please help! (Maybe it's not an issue, but it's really annoying, and I have this sneaking suspicion that whatever causes the Admin page to display the '/blog' sub-directory will come and bite me some time in the future.
(I am currently using an "Under Construction" plugin to prevent surfers from seeing the construction process. It works as intended, except that the front page does not show up when logged in, as it is supposed to, and as it does on the test site. That may be another effect of the errant "/blog" supposed subdirectory.)
There is no /blog sub-directory on the site (although there was on the original test site). I just checked the test blog: http://thewellness.net, and it seems that the error was transferred from there. It's showing up the same way, even though the site works fine:
Default http://thewellness.net/?p=123 Day and name http://thewellness.net/blog/2011/06/02/sample-post/ Month and name http://thewellness.net/blog/2011/06/sample-post/ Numeric http://thewellness.net/blog/archives/123 Custom Structure /blog /%postname%/
I'd really appreciate some help.
