    Hi , I had read somewhere that I can change the .htaccess to fix this, I would like to know how to fix it.

    First of all , I can't install MU in the root directory , 'cos I'm using a different index there.

    Hope someone can help me .

    Thanks

    Install Mu in root is the answer :)

    You seriously don't want to mess with htaccess for something as mad as Mu. Just use your home theme to show whatever you got in your current index.php

    I think what they're referring to is that when you look at a category link, it links to:

    domain/blog/category/%category%/

    Similar to the usual /category/... default of WP, but it adds /blog before /category.

    I'm sure there's a reason behind it, but I can't say for sure what.
    I know you can make an edit for a standard WP install, which removes the default /category, but I'm not sure if the same logic can be applied to WPMU.

    If it can, without incident, it would require modification of a core file which would be at your discretion.

    not quite .......

    It's something like , I have my blogs here:

    user.domain.com/blogs

    so if someone want to see a blog , must type by force all the user.domain.com/blogs/ , and I would like redirect from user.domain.com to all the patch..

    do I explain myself well??, 'cos really my English sucks.. jejeje

    So what you're saying, is that you don't see a site at

    user.domain.tld,

    at all?

    Sounds like MU is installed in domain.tld/blogs, which would be why.

    Unless you're referring to the links generated in the category list.

    Why not just move MU up to the root directory?

    Problem solved.

    If you have a lot of users, it's going to be time consuming.

    Hopefully, you didn't specify your main MU site as a subdomain, like blogs.domain.tld for example.

    Essentially, you'll need to find any instance of

    user.domain.com/blogs, and change it to user.domain.com, and also, there are a few places where it has the domain and path. Make sure the path is "/", and not "/blogs". No quotes, of course.

    If it's a brand new install, without users yet, just dump it and reinstall it. It would be much easier.

    However, take into account that if you do already have a lot of users, the url they've been listing/using to get to their site is now going to change.

    lunabyte, I really try everything and all is a mess when I try to move from /blogs/ to root.

    Must be a easy way to do this.

    see'a
