Redirect Not Working After Giving WordPress Its Own Directory

  • Are the countries in bottom menu your categories if so they are working fine when I click on them

    If you type in the former address of the categories into your browser (which have the /travelogue/ directory in the url) it won’t redirect. WordPress has taken care of the “in-system” links. The ones I want to redirect are all the links to category pages that I’ve inserted manually into the pages myself over the past 7 years.

    Also, my main worry is why the old homepage is not redirecting, as it has tons of links pointing at it.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    This is the code that WordPress automatically put in the htaccess file when I reset my blog address. For some reason it’s not redirecting the former blog homepage.

    Sorry, the last post was from the htaccess that was put in my root. The code that was put in my htaccess file in my directory (/travelogue/) is:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /travelogue/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /travelogue/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    I just did a WP install that had this exact same problem.

    I followed these instructions:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    to give WordPress it’s own directory and ended up with a weird redirect at login.

    Turns out I had to remove the directory from the .htaccess file I had in the directory itself, so that the root .htaccess and the directory .htaccess were identical.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    
    # END WordPress

    I had the same issue! Followed the same official instructions, and my site stopped working.

    Found the solution in a blog. http://upcode.tk/site-not-working-after-moving-wordpress-own-directory/
