Multisite adds /blog in the URL

After I installed the multisite, the URL adds a /blog in the permalinks.

A few infos in the internet said that I can remove that in the main site just by changing the configs in the Sites>>MainSite>>Config. and not making any more changes to the permalinks page.

I did that and the URL is now OK, but after I installed the fundraising plugin, the projects created are listed in the But if i go to the page i get a 404 error.

How can I fix this issue. Either removing the /blog from the URL in another way, or fixing the fundrasing plugin URL.

    Hi Kimberly,

    Thanks for your reply, but I already know that I can change that in the Other Tab,

    but that’s exactly the problem I’m refering to.

    I changed that but when I go to the page I get a 404 error.

    That happens because my multisite added a /blog in the URLs, and since I don’t want to use it, i just removed the /blog from the main site permalink structure directly in the config tab of the site.

    My permalinks would be /mydomain/year/month/post-name and not /mydomain/blog/year/month/post-name

    That’s why I asked if there is a way to remove the /blog besides removing directly from the site config page. That would solve the problem with this plugin and any other that might appear later.

    Hi Kimberly,

    This is a NginX vs htaccess config problem then, but maybe the fundrasing plugin could take a look at the Events + plugin to check the reference for the URL rewrite.

    For the Events+ I set the URL to be /

    The page load perfectly fine. No 404 error whatsoever and the /blog is ignored completely and that does not happen in the rewrite of the fundrasing plugin.

    I’ll take a look at the documentation you sent me and try to google for solutions for the nginx and path based wp.

    thanks a lot =)
