Posts not found on wordpress multisite sub-directory blog

Feb 25th, 2012 | By | Category: Internet

Wow, that’s a mouthful of adjectives to describe the location of the problem.. Let me explain.  I just finished setting up a multi-site wordpress install for the first time(which means, combined with my drupal sites, that I’m finally a man) and a little problem arose where all of the links to the posts on the first subdir site I created 404’d.  So all the posts on the main site (domain.com/) worked but all of the posts on the subdir site (domain.com/blog/) 404’ed.. Stranger still is that all of the pages on the sub-dir worked just fine, just the posts we’re the problem.

Anyways, the solution is way easier than trying to rationalize the problem.  just got into your permalinks settings page(which you would think would screw up posts and pages the same but whatever) and just change it to something else.  I changed it to only display the post name in the pretty link, saved my settings and it works again.. Strange but awesome 🙂
