Support » Networking WordPress » ‘blog’ in Permalink Structure

  • Hi,

    I’d like to take advantage of the mu features in 3.0 however if I enable the network my main blog will get ‘blog’ added to the url. Which is REALLY BAD since I have a lot of links pointing into my site.

    Even if I use 301 redirects, it’s just doesn’t look professional.

    Is there a way to remove that? I saw in the superadmin that you can change the permalink structure, but when I did so and removed, ‘blog’ all pages and custom post types came up as 404 not found.

    Any ideas what can be done?

    Thanks

    I’ve noticed the same problem.

    maybe you can try link juicer plug-ins

    Search for one of the many “remove /blog/ plugins” out there. Like in the repo.

    Iยดve looked and cannot find “remove /blog/ plugins”. It could be that my eyes are painted on but I have looked in the wordpress directory and nothing came up.

    I really want this /blog/ gone out of my URL structure.

    OK, so I took someones advice on that thread – since my blog is for multiple personal blogs (registration not open) I felt perfectly safe to do the following

    I went to Super Admin > Sites > Edit.

    Scroll down to “Permalink Structure” and remove the “/blog” part. That should work.

    This remedied my problem immediately.

    Yeah, it’s perfectly safe in some situations. I did it on one of mine ๐Ÿ™‚ But it’s good to know what you’re getting into!

    I have noticed that the addition blog only appears if you set the customized permalink structure AFTER activating the network.

    If you have a fresh wordpress 3.0 install and set a customized permalink structure for example /%postname%/ BEFORE activating the multisite network you won’t have “blog” in your permalinks.

    I had a customised permalink structure in place before activating the multisite network.

    @cinematic – the /blog/ only appears in subfolder setups on the main blog.
