I have a few stand alone WordPress blogs that I want to consolidate into WordPress's 3.0 Multisite feature. The blogs are stored as subdirectories in my main domain (www.redgarterclub.com).
I did enable the multisite feature in one of my blogs (stored in the server as /public_html/SDChronBlog2dot5); but when I went to the page where I was to enable the network, it gave me a warning that I had to change the base domain from "www.redgarterclub.com" to "redgarterclub.com", and that would possibly break some internal links.
Would have it been better for me to do a clean install of WP 3.0 at my root folder, enable the network there, create new clean sub-blogs there, and then export all of the data from my existing blogs over to the new blogs??
And, since I'm using subdirectories rather than subdomains, would that affect my permalink structure in any way?
Or...would it be better for me to just keep them as stand alone blogs?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
