Easiest way to simulate WordPress's URL resolution to retrieve post ID, etc?

I’m curious if it is possible, in a plugin/custom code, to take an URL that has been generated by the currently running WordPress site & parse it to retrieve the $blog_id and $post_id? ie. taking a string like “myblog.mysite.com/2012/03/16/whatever/” and determining that this is post #6 (“whatever”) on blog #2 (“myblog”). I realize that I […]

Site URL always in front of other URLs

My WordPress site is having a bad URL structure when I’m adding new URL.
