  • Is there a way for one site to view a certain folder and the rest can not? I would like to use ZenPhoto on one site and have it viewed on one site and not have the rest view it. I tried putting the gallery in /wp-content/blogs.dir/3/gallery and it could not view it. Any ideas on how tot fix this?

  • I may have confused people so I’ll try again. I have WordPress Multi-blog enabled. I want to install Zenphoto on one domain and not have the other domains see this folder. I tried putting the folder on /wp-content/blogs.dir/3/gallery and I get a 404 error. I don’t want to put this in the default directory / as all domains have access to this directory, also for SEO reasons.

    Can this be done?

    No … we get it. It’s just … Not really. I mean, you can’t really do it out of the box.

    Regardless of if you’re using subdomains ( and etc) or multiple top level domains ( etc), the whole kit and kaboodle runs from your master domain’s public_html folder (or whatever).

    So if you make a folder /zenphoto then it will be accessible by ALL blogs.

    The only way around it I can think of is if you setup .htaccess to redirect any requests for the folder that if they DON’T come from a specific domain/subdomain, they get rerouted to a sorry page.

    (also please don’t bump – many of us troll the ‘no replies’ page to help the stranded. Bumping takes you OFF that list.)

    Got it. Thanks.

    Update: It somewhat blocked using this code

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} controlalttv\.net [NC]
    RewriteRule .* – [F]

    However, you can still view the site from but with the css removed.

    I too wish there was a simple solution for this…hopefully someone posts one 🙂
