I have a simple website on wordpress (latest version), assume example.org.

I wanna have the user posts at something like example.org/blog/username/posttitle.

So I need some levels: 1) example.org/blog (main blog page) 2) example.org/blog/username (username archive page) 3) example.org/blog/username/posttitle (single post page)

I've seen a lot of old solutions that are mainly the same, but even if i set the permalink structure as /blog/%author%/%postname% or simply /blog/%postname% it doesn't work.

I mean, it works, but when you visit a right generated url I get a 404.

Solutions? Cheers,

  • Do you have installed a Multisite (network) version of WordPress?

  • Nope, i found that it was because i've also set the base category to 'blog' and it collides with the permalink structure. It works now. Thanks! Jan 8, 2014 at 15:17
  • Yes, Now I have understand the question right. I have read, that you will remove the blog slug.

Try this in your premalink setting page: Use Custom structure and put in this /blog/%author%/%postname%/ into the field. That should do the trick.

  • Are you sure you read the full post? I cite myself: I've seen a lot of old solutions that are mainly the same, but even if i set the permalink structure as /blog/%author%/%postname% or simply /blog/%postname% it doesn't work. I mean, it works, but when you visit a right generated url I get a 404.. Thanks anyway, but it doesn't work anymore. Jan 8, 2014 at 15:06
  • I tested it out on my blog, and it worked. My WP version is 3.8 Jan 8, 2014 at 15:13
  • What do you mean a "right generated url" Jan 8, 2014 at 15:13
  • I mean that the url is well done, accordingly with the permalink structure, but it falls in a 404. Jan 8, 2014 at 15:15
  • Damn, i just found that it was because of i've set the base category to 'blog', it collides. My fault, it works. Jan 8, 2014 at 15:15
