    I have a site filmperpc.com, it's one of the sites in the wordpress network (filmperpc.clickmember.net)

    If I wanted to create a subdomain for filmperpc.com (filmperpc.clickmember.net), how would I go about this?

    cheers

  2. You mapped a domain and now you want that mapped domain to have it's own subdomains?

    I THINK you can make a new blog on filmperpc.clickmember.net and map THAT to subdomain.filmperpc.com but it depends what plugin you're using for domain mapping.

  3. If you wanted your subsite to have child sites, then you would have had to use a multi-network plugin instead of domain mapping.

    I tried creating a site called "landingpage.clickmember.net" and then tried to map that to landingpage.filmperpc.com but it didn't work.

    Andrea - I'm a little confused as to what you mean. Is it possible for me to get this working with my current setup? I don't mind unmapping filmperpc.com, but I'd still to use the same WordPress Multsite installation to manage that domain....are you saying it's not possible because my WPMU is using domain mapping?

    Thanks guys...

  5. No, because you can use domain mapping and a multi network plguin simultaneously. You just do not need to map the new network, because the network plugin does that for you.

    unmap filmperpc.com.
    install a networks plguin.
    create a new network for filmperpc.com.

    then you have what you want - blogs off of filmperpc.com.
