    Go to Super Admin > Options – Registration Settings – Banned Names = names of subdirectory folders with WP installs
    e.g. if you have actual subdirectory sites at and, include site1 and site2 in list of Banned Names

    @mercime I had thought that banned names = userID or usernames and didn’t think it was also applied to subfolders. I will give it a try. Thank you for your reply.

    Hi intimez and mercime!

    I was wanting to do the same thing, do my site in wordpress, then for categories which need a more complex CMS use another CMS in that folder, that should work right?
    i.e. wordpress in so and are just wordpress categories.
    But I want a different CMS in there, is there anything else I have to do? so it doesnt interfere?

    So I presume if is a WP blog (with or without multisite), you should be able to run other CMS in and right?
    I think this may work on the first / main domain, as if the wordpress install files are physically in the folder which hosts your domain, then I can’t see why you can’t put another cms in folders etc … if this is another network blog mapped to that main install with a domain mapping plugin may be more complicated

    P.S. A bit more complex if I would probably like the section to have its own blog at so would really want the Nested Paths for Multisite! any idea how to get this to work
