    When I'm attempting to work on a subdirectory site, I have been uploading images into the media library, but when I go through to see the full-size image, it's broken.

    The link my browser is: http://MYDOMAIN.com/SUBSITE/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2014/08/IMAGE.jpg

    But instead of serving up an image OR a 404, it prints out this text:

    Hey there!

    This is usually due to an issue with your rewrite rules in your .htaccess file. Go ahead and double check that file and compare it to what rules are needed for WordPress multisite subdirectory here:


    Let me know if you need further help!

    It turns out that this was the fault of the Watermark plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/alti-watermark/

    I had done all the htaccess fixes and checks and it was driving me nuts. The Watermark plugin was active *only* on the base site (not network activated) and it completely broke all images in all sub-sites.

    Wow, so weird and not a very nice plugin..it probably wasn't built/coded for Multisite. Glad you found the issue!
