I am working on a site in which the WP install is in a subfolder called /blog/, so that our client can only edit the WP sites and not the homepage and other static content in the root directory of the site.
They also need an editable section for news items, so I established a network with the Blog site being the primary installation, and a separate News site. By default, the news section becomes /blog/news.
However, I want the news site to exist in /news, not /blog/news. I have tried editing the site path in network admin, but I just get a 404 when I navigate to /news. Is this something that needs to be done as a rewrite rule, or is there a better way to manage this setup? It is a fresh install so I don't mind re-installing if necessary.
