#1864 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

rewrite rules annoyance

Reported by: filosofo Owned by: ryan
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.6
Component: Administration Keywords: mod_rewrite classes.php rewrite request_uri

Description

1.6 does not execute the rewrite rules for the home page if WordPress resides in the top level of a domain.

In other words, if WP is in www.example.com/ and someone requests that
page, no rewrite rules will be considered.

However, if WP is in www.example.com/blog/ and someone requests that
page, the rewrite rules WILL be considered.

That means that plugin creators can't modify the rewrite rules via filters, for example, to make the "home" page be something other than the most recent posts.

I've attached a patch to fix the problem.
