Oh you can remove the blog slug, but it’ll come back if you ever save permalinks again on your main site.
Go to network admin > sites and edit your main site.
Scroll down till you find the permalinks, and remove the blog slug.
Just remember, you will have to do this again if you ever save your permalinks for your main site.
Thank you for your reply!
I actually found a plugin that works perfectly called “Permalink Editor” so my initial problem is taken care of, without the issue you mentioned because the URL’s do not change back.
However, now I have decided to migrate the installations into the MU because of the time saved with plugins, etc. and most importantly with the database of files that would have to be uploaded separately to each installation if I kept them separate.
So, this plugin “Permalink Editor” does not seem to be able to access the structure in the secondary blogs when they are under the MU. Unless I am just not seeing where to make the changes.
I tried in the location you mentioned earlier, but that does nothing… I tried directly in the Settings – Permalinks area… no luck!
Aaand that would be why we don’t recommend that plugin for multisite 😉
The thing is, I have a feeling you’re doing this wrong.
The way multisite works (for subfolders) is like this:
Main site: domain.com
So … If you want a URL to be domain.com/prostate_cancer, then you put the page in domain.com and not domain.com/subsite
However, if you want a SITE to be named prostate_cancer, then you make the site … domain.com/prostate_cancer
That’s all. You should never be monkeying around with the permalinks.
