Multiple Blogs Bug 1

This is in regards to my post, Multiple WordPress Blogs Under One WordPress Folder.

Problem Status : Fixed

Problem Description:

The links of the blog points to another blog so it results into a dead link.

For example, http://silkenhut/archives/ would lead to my other blog, my animeblog, but the other blog does not have /blog/archives/ so it results into a dead link.

Fixes and updates below…

My discovered fix:

This fix is not yet official since I am still not sure of the cause of the problem. What I do here is to:

  • proceed to the wp-admin page, go to options->Permalinks (wp-admin/options-permalink.php) .
  • Change your permalink structure temporarily and save.
  • Change it back to what it is before and save.

This worked for the blog.


Quoting from the read-me file of the multiblog trick….

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/(blogname1|blogname2)/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /%1/index.php [L]

Replace blogname1 and blogname2 with your blognames. You can add more blognames there, just separate them with a |. Put that in your .htaccess file and CHMOD it so that wordpress won’t overwrite it.

As of now, the status of this bug is FIXED.
