Is this even possible?
I have a subdomain ( clients.mysite.com, for example ) that I've tried setting up a Multisite subdirectory installation for. Ideally, I'd like clients.mysite.com/site1 etc. to work.
Everything seems to work fine when I view the base site and the sub-sites, except that calls such as
get_stylesheet_directory_uri() from themes used for sites add the site to the path: mysite.com/clients/SUBSITE/wp-content/themes/...
According to http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network you're not supposed to give WordPress its own directory. WordPress is installed in the mysite.com/clients folder. Is that the problem? You just can't/shouldn't use a subdomain as the root for a Multisite install?
I guess I can purchase a separate domain such as mysiteclients.com and point it to the directory. I'm just trying to avoid additional domain and hosting costs.
