How to add folders and directories to child sites

Solution

WordPress multisite has some restrictions regarding folders in a child site mapped to a separate domain.

That said, If you want to create folders in child sites, you can do so.

You could add a directory/file directly into WordPress installation root folder and that directory will be available as "child-site.com/some-folder".

You could also add subfolders like "child-site.com/some-folder/2-level/3-level" and they will also work fine.

The problem is the same folder will be also available for all sites on the network, for example as "another-child-site.com/some-folder".

This is usually not a big deal as long as you do not link the file/folder from other sites and visitors cannot discover it.

The real problem is that the same-named file/folder with different contents couldn't be added for different sites.
