Note: A Main thing About Permalinks
The only problems that we experienced with our multisite discussion was relevant to the framework of the permalinks. Typically,we have normally used /blog/%postname%/ or %postname% for our primary blog. Because we were already using a subdirectory for our blog, WordPress wanted to insert a second /blog subdirectory in our url.
Unnecessary to say, this split all of the old hyperlinks on our website. The problem was not quickly fixed, due to some oddities with WordPress itself.[alert style=”green”] 1. blog site set Settings -> Permalinks -> Common Setting -> Default
2. Network Admin Panel -> Sites -> (root site) Permalink Sturcture -> /%category%/%post_id% [/alert]
