    Apologies for being such a numpty, but I can't figure out how to work this plugin. Do you have a step-by-step guide and how to go about setting domain mapping up?

    Thanks. Gavin.

    Okay, I've got this far.

    domain-A.com (registered through GoDaddy) is forwarded to domain-B.com with masking (with update DNS checked).

    I type domain-A.com into the address bar, and it forwards to domain-B.com whilst still displaying domain-A.com.

    All great so far.

    In the DMS settings, I select Pages, and then type domain-A.com and then select the Page I want to redirect to. However, the redirect only lands on the front page, not the allocated page.

    I've also tried this with just forwarding and no masking enabled, but still no redirection to the page I want.

    Thanks in anticipation for your help.

    Hi

    Have you added domain-A.com and www.domain-A.com to the DMS settings?
    That might help.

    Hi deniaz. I have, but no luck I'm afraid :)

    I've also tried deactivating all plugins except yours, and tried it with the default 2011 theme, but no joy.

    Hi Gavin,

    Mind giving me a link to the site? I'd really like to help you with this.

    Hi deniaz

    The domain to forward is indysummerfield.com and the site it lands at is freemanpress.co.uk

    As you can see, it forwards okay with masking to the frontpage of freemanpress.co.uk, but I want it to land at freemanpress.co.uk/test-page/

    And in DMS settings, I've checked Pages only, and added both http://www.indysummerfield.com and indysummerfield.com, with Test Page selected from the dropdown.

    Thanks and all the best.

    Hi Gavin

    Okay, everything seems fine when looking at the page. Could you contact me via robert@cheekyowl.com so we can look at this in a more direct approach? Perhaps you could hook me up with a temporary login for the page, so I can have look there.

    Regards,
    Rob
