Re: Can't Create New Blogs
So guess what fixed it?
I changed the folder where WordPress mu was installed from /blogs/ to /blog/ and now it works Ok.
If I had installed it in the root directory there would have been no problems.
But look at what the WordPress mu installation instructions say…
“If you want to have your WordPress MU installation in its own subdirectory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blogs/), 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 “blog” and upload it to the root directory of your web server.”
Notice their first “example” is /blogs/’ and then in their second example they just say /blog/. I went with the first reference because I liked it better.
The BuddyPress documentation just says get WordPress mu working and then BuddyPress will work. I never saw anywhere that it said, “Oh, by the way…just don’t install it in a subfolder called /blogs/ or it will get confused by the redirects we do in /members/blogs/ and it won’t work so don’t do that.”
I’m being sarcastic. This is probably a bug or an unforseen situation (really?) but anyway, whether or not this would have affected anyone else it is what fixed it for me.
