Categories as Subdomains (6 posts)

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a question that I hope someone can push me into the right direction. I'm trying to use the category slug as subdomains to each category of content. For example:

    Categories -> Subdomain
    Category = test -> test.domain.tld
    Category = test2 -> test2.domain.tld

    The WP Subdomain plugin doesn't work anymore and I've contacted the author and received no response.

    I need to know the best way to do this. I know wordpress has multisite, however, for all that I know, that seems a bit of overkill for what I want to do.

    Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    Yea, definitely. I can't even get in touch with the author; it's like he's dropped off the face of the earth, or doesn't want to be bothered by anyone.

    Hey Pankaj,

    I just tried your plugin on my local WordPress setup, but its not working properly.
    I guess there must have options to use particular category for subdomain. (NOT all categories).
    e.g. If I have a domain example.com and news is my category then it is showing news.example.com properly but when I under news.example.com section and try to go back by clicking home url then it shows me news.example.com only (NOT example.com).
    Another thing: If I have assigned two categories to same post (say Uncategorized and news) then the URL is something like uncategorized.news.example.com , which is something wrong.

    Can you help me out with these issues?
    If you want I can paste this issue in your blog also, but I guess to keep it public along with plugin support forum is good enough.

    Awaiting for your positive reply on these issues.

    Thanks,
