Cannot Register the Name 'Blogs'

Reported by: dan_85's profile dan_85 Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Blogs Keywords: register, names, domain, reporter-feedback


I wish to register the name 'Blogs' as a new blog on my site - However, when I try to do so I get the following error messages:

  1. Only lowercase letters and number allowed
  1. This name is not allowed

I have not blocked the name in Site Admin > Options.

  • Component changed from Core to Blogs
  • Keywords reporter-feedback added

Assuming you're on MU. This is because the BuddyPress Blog Directory has a slug of "blogs" by default.

Try putting this in your wp-config.php, and then try again:

define ( 'BP_BLOGS_SLUG', 'somethingelse' );
