Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » Root Directory /blog/ for WordPress 3.0 main Multisite

  • stylecollision


    Hi there,

    i’m playing around with 3.0-beta and installed a main Site and two further ones. The furthers ones are and – the main Site ist

    The problem now is, that all posts (even custom post types) on the main Site have the address mydomain/blog/2010/05/12/post/ or similar. So eacht time we have the leading /blog/ for post-urls.

    I took a look in the WordPress Settings and found, that i couldn’t change the permalinks, because the part “/blog” can’t be edited.

    Is there any chance to change this? Thanks for an answer.

  • ho hum .. the wheel it turns slowly but surely

    Wished I’d known about this before my install snafu. Although Andrea recommends you not remove the /blog/ slug, so maybe I went the right way. I will be following this discussion.

    I’d just redirect my old posts to my new location:
    RewriteRule ^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$$1/$2/$3/$4 [L,R=301]

    Actually, I went to this:
    RewriteRule ^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$$4 [L,R=301]

    So my URLs are now — Shorter = better 🙂

    Great discussion. I’ve recently removed /blog from my multisite. And so far so good. Just keeping my eyes open for any conflicts. @_@

    I’ve done the same…removed ‘blog’ from the site admin. I also needed to go into the Config and remove:

    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    Now the main blog shows up as the root directory blog which is much more desirable than before.

    Aside from the concerns about category names about If anyone thinks this will cause long-term problems to the site I’m working on please advise!

    Just FYI: If you re-save permalinks on blog #1, /blog/ will come back.
