Multisite subdirectory and alias

    WordPress doesn’t like aliases.

    What’s the end goal with this?

    Thanks Ipstenu

    The teachers researchers at my university will create automatically event websites on the multisite network.

    The subject of their sites will be different and I would like them to choose the URL they will transmit to their audience.

    If it’s a conference : http://www.domain.com/conference/site1, if an exposition : http://www.domain.com/exposition/site1

    And you can’t have WP installed in domain.com root I take it….

    The easiest solution would be install wp at domain.com and use a MultiNetwork plugin to make two main sites ‘conference’ and ‘exposition’. Then make all the subsites off of that.

    Obviously you could do that at domain.com/sites/ as your main WP instance, and have domain.com/sites/expo/ and domain.com/sites/conf/ and so on, with the sub-sites and subnetworks as before, but that adds an extra layer on.

    Past that, you get two separate Multisites :/

    I don’t know how to reliably alias the subfolders, though. You’d just end up with both URLs working.
