I run a website for one company and would like to run one part as a regular CMS (pages for products, services, etc.) and a few other parts as several blogs (one for press releases, one for blog posts, etc.).
I installed WordPress in the root directory. When I went to add Multisite functionality, I got this message:
Because your install is in a directory, the sites in your WordPress network must use sub-directories. Warning! The main site in a sub-directory install will need to use a modified permalink structure, potentially breaking existing links.
My site is in many languages, but the blogs are only in one language at this time. Currently, I have pages structured like this <http://www.domain.com/page> for the default language and <http://www.domain.com/es/pagina> for translated versions. In other words, I used subdirectories for the page translations.
I also want to use one or two subdomains like <http://blog.domain.com> and <http://pr.domain.com> so that I can have those blog posts and press releases at <http://blog.domain.com/post-name> and <http://pr.domain.com/press-release-title>.
If that is not possible, where would these blog posts reside? Would the "blog" subdirectory be ahead of the language subdirectory (blog/fi) or the other way around? My default language (en-US) currently has no subdirectory.
