    I have no idea what the problem is really, but you should be using subdomains for your wpmu blogs if running WordPress MU, afaik. Otherwise you are bound to get in trouble.

    Sub directories work just fine, at least so far for me anyhow.

    It looks to me like in the path to your root blog, the “/” got replaced with “base”

    Go to Site admin

    Click on Blogs.

    Click on “Edit” on your main blog.

    Next to “Path” in that text box, it should say “/” and I bet it says “base”

    That’s my guess. :)

    If I’m wrong, lets look in your wp-config.php file for something similar.

    johnjamesjacoby – you got it man.. it was in the wp-config

    changed from

    $base = ‘base’;

    changed to

    $base = ‘/’;

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */

    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    define(‘VHOST’, ‘no’);

    $base = ‘/’;

    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );

    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’ );

    define(‘BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘1’ );

    but now that I can see the blog it appears that the theme doesn’t get applied

    time to open a new post

    Topic authors. Please turn off the lights when you leave the room. The big red one. Are we done here? If you are just going to chat please turn off the light. It’s more cozy that way.
