Re: Problem with short urls
Honestly, I think it is time for a new host.
I believe buddypress highly recommends using subdomains for member blogs, for example:
myblog.example.com and if you host doesn’t support that I don’t think it is a solid hosting solution.
If you are trying out buddypress for a small scale deployment, with just a few friends using it and they don’t need blogs you might be ok.
There are already a few posts around here of what people are using for hosting, but I have never heard of a paid solution that wouldn’t allow nonwww domains.
