[resolved] Domain mapping subdirectories (6 posts)

    I am a network admin for two small schools in central Maine. I want to get one version of WordPress up and running for both schools for the sake of central management. So far so good, I have multi-site enabled with subdirectories (wildcard DNS is not an option here), and have the domain mapping plug-in installed and working.

    I have blogs.schoolA.k12.me.us pointed to / in WordPress and blogs.schoolB.k12.me.us mapped to /school2 via the domain mapping plug-ing. Everything seems to be working nicely.

    My question is this: Is it possible to create a new blog as a subdirectory of the new mapped domain? I can with the original domain, the one I used to set up multi-site, but can I with the mapped domain have a blog that would be something like blogs.schoolB.k12.me.us/test or something like that?

  2. If you want that, then you;d need a multi-network plugin like this one:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-multi-network/

    Which is a little harder to use once you've set the other site up. :-/ It creates the second network and maps the domain at the same time.

    (also, hi from next door in New Brunswick! :D )

    Thanks for the response. Fortunately for me, everything is still in the testing phase with no critical data as of yet, so if I need to, I can delete and reinstall.

    I'm still amazed at how customizable WordPress is. I think it will be a great tool for our teachers and students.

    (Enjoying the first hint of fall weather?)

  4. Yeah, it's being used a *lot* by schools and stuff. And even us homeschoolers. ;)

    (Yep - great weather for sleeping now. :D I have a tree turning red right now.)

    Are there any plug-ins that would enable me to enforce certain moderation settings on all networks and sites?

    Like the settings panel for each blog, but for super admins?

    Basically, I want to force registration and comment moderation on all blogs without having to change that setting on each one.

    Is this possible?
