WordPress has been installed in a subdirectory like so [mysite.com/blog/](https://mysite.com/blog/)
There is a html site located here [mysite.com](https://mysite.com)
All new blog posts urls look simular to this [mysite.com/blog/](https://mysite.com/blog/)have-a-nice-day
A user wants to add additional custom post types, but at one level down. Like so[mysite.com/news](https://mysite.com/news) [mysite.com/careers](https://mysite.com/careers)
Can this be achived with the current wordpress install with some tweaking with url rewrites using the .htaccess file?
Currently if the user adds a new custom post type it is located here:[mysite.com/blog/careers](https://mysite.com/careers) [mysite.com/blog/news](https://mysite.com/news)
The user does not want the /blog/ directory to show.
Again, this wordpress install is in a subdirectory and can not be located in the home directory, another system lives there. So please do not suggest wordpress gets moved to the home directory as that is not a option.
ps. i tried another method, coverting the site to WordPress mu, then manually creating directories with a htaccess file, and then creating sub-blogs at the same level as /blog/ this works, but i don’t think this is good practice, so i restored the previous site. I have a guide as to how to achieve this if anyone wants to know.[mysite.com/blog/](https://mysite.com/blog/) mu installation [mysite.com/site1](https://mysite.com/site1) Mu sub site 1 [mysite.com/site2](https://mysite.com/site2) Mu sub site 2 [mysite.com/site3](https://mysite.com/site3) Mu sub site 3
