Note to self: Since you installed WP as a network site (you dolt!) you will have to hack around the WordPress permalink bug that adds a /blog/ to the URL by default.
Follow these steps from Lobo as admin:
- Setup Permalinks in Dashboard->Settings->Permalinks and Save
- Now go Network admin->Sites click Edit by Sigg3.net
- Scroll down to Permalink structure and edit as needed
- Head back to the page in 1) but do NOT change or click save.
Apparently, it’s the last step that updates the db table to make any changes to the .htaccess take effect. This is a bug, gentlemen. But it has the same familiar air to it that the early and, to be honest, later days of b2 had. It’ll be interesting to see how this goes.
