Support » Networking WordPress » WP-networks not working: secondary network subpages direct to top main network

  • Resolved stephaniefraser


    Ok… first thank you for your time and wisdom. I surely need it.

    I have been working on a site about writing memoirs which originally was called: Autobituary.Net. and then we discussed the hierarchy of the project and decided that: was a more logical top to the pyramid.

    So…. I got bluehost to switch the Main URL on the account from Autobituary.Net to MemoirSite.Com. is now Parked there. (Although I have not reset anything on that URL’s registrars settings).

    Ok… now I can make it work on both the first database and the newly created second database.

    What doesn’t work at all is when you go to the blog listing and click on AB it works, but then on the ABOUT page it goes back to the main MemoirSite page.

    What would happen if I deleted the Network and reassigned it? Does it limit the use of the name?

    And… could this be something related to the fact that the URL’s were switched on the account?

  • I made a new network for one of the parts called, Recollection Check.

    It shows up.
    I can get to the admin.
    I can even edit the pages.

    But all the links resolve to the main site.


    However…. the links on the sub sites for the network’s do work DOES NOT WORK

    However, DOES WORK.


    Some line of code is missing right?

    Visit the main blog and resave the permalinks.

    Let me try this…. be right back with a report

    Didn’t work.

    I also went to the dashboard for the Recollection Check.Com (#3 in the network)
    and it still didn’t work.

    Unlikely to be the cause but … what’s in your .htaccess?

    #BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    #END WordPress

    Why would it not work on one level and then work on the next level down?

    The even stranger part is that when I make a “sub blog” off of a network the links work just fine.

    Server setup. Time to file a support ticket with your host.


    something in the way that the URLs are parked, maybe?

    This is odd too:

    I can see the buddypress admin bar on this page: — with working links

    and not on this page — links not working


    OK… it’s working now.

    I made sure that I had the htaccess file from the networks admin page.


    removed :
    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );
    define( ‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’ );
    define( ‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );
    define( ‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );

    from the wp-config.php file.

    My thanks to the webcoding angel who helped me! Much respect and admiration to all of you.
