Partial permalink trouble (2 posts)

    My permalink structure is this:

    /blog/%postname%/

    When someone visits mydomain.com/blog or mydomain.com/blog/, they get a WordPress-managed 404. I'd like them to be redirected to mydomain.com.

    1) I tried using .htaccess like this:

    Redirect /blog http://mydomain.com/

    But that breaks all my permalinks like this:

    http://mydomain.com//%postname%/

    2) I tried this:

    Redirect 301 /blog http://mydomain.com/

    But that had the same result.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    The /blog/ is stuck in there on subfolder installs.

    The cleanest way to handle it is to write a new page called Blog. No text.
    Then go to Settings -> Reading and set that as the "show posts page".

    no, it doesn't redirect. But it no longer gives a 404.
