I was just about to enter this in the issue tracer but thought it might not be an issue so I would post here first for discussion, and add it as an issue if it is something that needs to changed.

I have what might be a weird configuration, but it might be common as well so here it is. I have my hosting account for one site that is used as the main account with a application directory under its root for a secondary site I run. This site has the its own domain names pointing to it. I then added an application directory under this site named dpdblog to hold the files.

text diagram of structure
--hosting account root - APP
----dispoddir ( root) - APP
------dpdblog (BlogEngine.NET root) - APP

When going to the blog directory in a browser ( url gets reset to something different (

And the "home" link on the pages of the blog all point to the URL

Is this something that can be corrected? Is it possible to have it compute the RootDir as Is it something wrong with blogengine or maybe it is my setup? (I will check the domain and see how its DNS entries are set, as that just hit me as something to check)

It sounds to me like a DNS and IIS issue. Maybe IIS doesn't resolve the right root path when the DNS points as it does. You might want to move the dpdblog folder up to be a sibling of the dispoddir folder.
