Install new sites under blog/ permalink

  • Lots of posts about removing the “blog/” from the admin blog.
    But I’d like to have new sites installed under a blog/ structure, such as example.com/blog/[blog name]
    (I’m reserving example.com/[blog name] for Buddypress user profiles)

    Ideally, Iā€™d like to configure things to match a non-WP site I set up, where each user automatically has a blog set up on registration, located at example.com/[user name]/blog
    But
    1) I suspect auto-create a blog is a bit complex
    2) I can handle old URLs with some mod_rewrite magic

    So any way to set up new blogs in a subdirectory, such as example.com/blog/[blog name] ? Any way to add a prefix (or suffix) to the blogs?

    You’d have to install it in a directory called /blog/, but then you’d need another one at the root.

    Also, when they sign up if they check the right box – BOOM they get a blog. šŸ˜‰

    Works just like wordpress.com remember.

    Not exactly the solution I’m looking for. Any other suggestions?

    Hmm.

    You could manually go in and rename the path under Site Info to /blog/foobar but that’s the only thing I can think of….

    If that’s how you want the Buddypress URLs…. then it has to be in the root.

    Actually, BP profiles are example.com/members/membername.
