WordPress MU Domain Mapping
[resolved] Can WordPress MU Domain Mapping be made to work with WordPress 3.4? (11 posts)

    The menus are different from any of the tutorials and some users, and me, do not get this to work on 3.4. Is there a way for this plugin to work on 3.4?

    Or is there a different Multisite domain mapping plugin I might consider instead for use with 3.4?

    Thanks.

    I setup my first mapped domains recently with 3.4 so it does work.

    Many of the tutorials are not up to date, but the general info is still the same.

    David,

    Any suggestions as to what to put in the hosting subdomains or in the WordPress admin for sites and domains? I'm confused if I need an actual subfolder under my root, or if I need a subdomain.

    Not sure why I don't see your post in this thread either since the email I got implied you responded to the thread and not directly to me.

    Thanks, Dave

    Please close either this thread or http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-mu-domain-mapping-this-does-not-work-on-34?replies=1 since they are the same question.

    In whichever one you choose to leave open, please elaborate on what you mean by "the menus are different".

    I marked the other as resolved since did not know how to close or delete it.

    I am using WordPress 3.4, turned on networking, installed 'WordPress MU Domain Mapping' version 0.5.4.2 and followed your instructions as best I could since the menus were different, and have my basic or first site working Ok.

    When I login as admin, I see "My Sites"/Network Admin with Dashboard, Sites, Users, Visit Network but do not see any Super Admin menu though do see admin is a "Super Admin" from the Users' tab.

    I do not see the "Super Admin" tab with Domain Mappings and domain tabs like in your example, but do see a Settings tab with Settings, Domain Mappings and Domains.

    I don't see any Tools menu for the Network Admin dashboard nor a Tools menu on the Dashboard for a particular site that has a Domains Mapping submenu.

    And when I select Settings/Domains in the Network Admin dashboard, I am asked for a site id. I just picked number 2 and managed to add a new domain but what number to use was not intuitive though I saw my first site was #1 hovering on some button.

    So I have two sites defined and only my main site (e.g. MyFirstSite.com) works, and it happens to also be my GoDaddy shared hosting site URL.

    So I am unclear what I need for the second domain site in terms of a virtual directory at GoDaddy, a real directory in the file system under the root, or as a path in WordPress multisite. I did set mapping to the actual URL of the second site (e.g. MySecondSite.com) but if I do the dashboard or visit that site I get a 404.

    Also don't know if I'm supposed to check "Update siteurl and home as well" (I did check that) or am supposed to have a path of "MySecondSIte" in the site info as well (I do have that), or have a real such folder under the root, which I do have, though nothing was put into it.

    Thanks so much, Dave

    Maybe this helps - I deleted the second site and started over and now if I enter "MySecondSite.com" in my browser I get a blank screen in FireFox and in IE8, the URL changes to "MySecondSite.MyFirstSite.com" and I get an "Oops!!! Page not found".

    But if I enter "MySecondSite.com/wp-login.php" in FireFox or IE8, I am able to login into my second site just fine.

    Oddly, after I logged in as Admin, I got a warning about no theme setup, I set one up, then I could go to the "MySecondSite.com" URL just fine. THe "SecondSite.FirstSite.com" I fixed using a combination of clearing the cache and setting some url properties on the site in the site admin page. Marking resolved. Thanks, Dave

    Why does this thread have "resolved" in the title.

    I have the same menu situation as Codeslinger. Does anybody know if that means that 3.4 has change the interface or is there something wrong with my installation?

    Also, I have seen conflicting information about using subdomains. Can they be used at all or not? E.g.,

    WordPress is on subdomain.mysite.com and I want to set up othersite.com to use the WordPress on subdomain.mysite.com

    is what I am trying to do.

    Codeslinger answered that question in his last post:

    Yes, you can do that.
