  • Thank you for your reply. As I noted earlier, I’m already running a WordPress blog network with active members. Incidentally, the README.txt file for WordPress actually uses the directory /blogs as an example:

    * If you want to have your WordPress MU installation in its own

    subdirectory on your web site (e.g.,

    rename the directory wordpressmu to the name you’d like the

    subdirectory to have and move or upload it to your web server.

    For example if you want the WordPress MU installation in a

    subdirectory called “blog”, you should rename the directory called

    “wordpressmu” to “blogs” and upload it to the root directory of your

    web server.

    I imagine this may be a problem for others who went in this direction. Are you saying that those of us in this situation are out of luck with BuddyPress unless we reinstall and try to import all of our users’ blogs into the new site?

    Thanks again, I do appreciate your time on this.

    Thank you very much for the link. I apologize in advance for not getting this. I tried your instructions, creating the bp-custom.php file as you suggested:

    function blog_to_video($c){

    $c = ‘videos’;

    return $c;



    I tried it with my own label and also tried it with the label video – both return a poorly formatted home page listing the blogs (as it did when I simply uploaded the blogs plugin) but the following text is at the top of the page:

    function blog_to_video($c){ $c = ‘videos’; return $c; } add_filter(‘bp_blogs_slug’,’blog_to_video’);

    Am I supposed to edit another file somewhere?

    Thank you again for your help!

    Hi, I’m having this exact problem. I already have a number of user blogs operating properly. I have a main website with content, so my blog network was installed under the folder “blogs”. Everything else for BuddyPress works fine until I upload the blogs plugin. (bp-blogs.php and folder “bp-blogs”) Is there any other way around this besides reinstalling my MU files in a different folder? It may be a 30 minute job for people experts, but I’m not in that category. I imagine this could be a problem for many users who simply chose the subfolder “blogs” for their MU installation. This effects not just my home blog, but all user blogs already on the network include this path. Is there something in the bp-blogs.php plugin that can be modified to change this behavior? Thanks!
