#26349 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Network Admin links are inconsistent

If you have WP in a subdirectory (say wp/) and don't set define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/wp/');, the Network Admin links are inconsistently broken for a subdomain install.

For example, on the Sites page (network/sites.php), the menu links incorrectly to /wp/wp-admin/network/site-new.php, however the links on the page itself link to /wp-admin/network/site-new.php

I'm guessing that the links on the page don't use network_admin_url(). Let's at least be consistently wrong here.

I've run into link weirdness plenty of times as well. We should clarify current behavior and then make sure it is consistent and expected.

I have tried everything I can to reproduce this bug, including subverting setup to go against the way WordPress tries to steer any sub-directory install away from subdomain network setup, but I am simply unable to reproduce the problem.

I'm thinking that it has been fixed somewhere since 3.5.

If I'm wrong, and it can be reproduced in version 4.1 some steps to reproduce would be great.

Yes this is not happening on latest version for me. It happened before I done the latest update.

Tested in 4.1 with a multisite in /wp/ and subdomains. Couldn't reproduce this issue.

The links in the 'Network Admin' menu point to the wrong directory in my installation (Wordpress 4.6.1) where Wordpress is located in its own directory and multisite is enabled, i.e. siteurl <> home. E.g. the link behind the menu item 'My Sites' / 'Network Admin' / 'Dashboard' on the page reads "", resulting in HTTP 404 when I choose it.

Sorry, in the meantime I found out it was my fault. I confused "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)". By the way, I didn't find a way to recover from this error than to completely reinstall Wordpress.
