Get rid of that /blog redirect and handling (10 posts)

    Hi,

    is there any way to get rid of they way wpmu handles the default weblog in a subdirectory-type install where / and /blog are the same?

    I'd like to do a little portal on / and have my main blog in /blog with a standard blog starting page in domain.com/blog/. By default wpmu maps /blog on / - that's most probably due to conflicting issues with permalinks but as i don't want to use big posts in the main blog on / that wouldn't hurt me.

    So is there a possible way probably without modifying the core?

    Thanks for your help!

    Sure, in your theme.

    Use home.php in your theme folder to show what you want under /.

    make a page template to pull your blog index. name it "blog". Admittedly, I have not tried this yet... :D but it *should* work.

    Hi again,

    is there also a way to have all the posts of this primary blog on top level:

    domain.com/2009/10/posttitle.html instead of
    domain.com/blog/2009/10/posttitle.html

    Thanks!

    If you're using subdirectory install - you should not do this :)
    Imagine that you have a page domain.com/sports/ and then you'll get a user 'sports' registering. So, /blog/ part is important in subdir installs.

    it's a non public installation with only a view blogs and the main blog on / will only have a view pages that should be reachable via /page1 /page2 instead of /blog/page1 /blog/page2 and so on.

    So the named problem should not really be a problem.

    The fun thing is i can get the permalinks working without /blog but i can't get wordpress to remove it in the permalink-edit-section and so wordpress tries to link the posts to /blog/posttitle.

    Weird!

    I want to change /blog to /site for my main blog entries. I can't seem to find a way to do this, though according the instructions in the admin simply adding "site" to the category base field should do it. Is it even possible?
