/attachment/ URL problem - please help ;-) (1 post)

    hello wordpress community ;-)

    i got an issue with the image attachment feature of worpdress. i'm running a multi site setup with a few sites / domains all using the same installation.

    ok ... if you go there for example ->


    you see a picture of a whale shark. if you click on the pic you will be send to the attachment page ->


    which works perfectly fine!

    BUT ... if you go to that page, another site on the same multi site install ->


    and click on any image in the content area, e.g.


    the image is also inserted into the post via the 'attachment' option ...

    i do get an apache 301 status error permanently removed in the web server log! and then gets redirected to the image file url ->


    so ... the attachment page doesn't work here ;-( which makes me sort of sad as i don't know why ;-( could anyone please help ;-)

    it's the same wordpress installation. both sites use the same permalinks structure, access the same rewrite rules in the .htaccess file ... but on one site it works ... and on another site it doesn't ;-(

    can someone please guide me towards the right direction to fix this issue as i would really like to get this attachment feature working.

    as any file or directory which doesn't exist will be rewritten via mod_rewrite and then send over to the index.php page i think there might be something wrong with the wordpress rewrite rules in the 'options' table? probably an internal wordpress rewrite rule doesn't catch and therefore i do get the 301 http status code error?

    sadly i'm not a wordpress expert but some expert here might perhaps be able to send me in the right direction? any tips? any recommendation?

    your help is more than appreciated ;-)

    thanks & all the best
