Editing sites with Primary URL (17 posts)

    Hello

    I am using WP multisite. When I click on a site's dashboard say site1 dashboard from admin the URL is something like: http://site1.blogs.domain.com
    My WP in installed on http://blogs.domain.com

    Sometime back I found an option where I can there is a choice to select the URL to be primary domain (http://primary1.domain.com) or actual domain (http://site1.blogs.domain.com) while editing sites. I want to have primary URL all the time even when editing the site. But I am not able to find this option now.

    Please tell where is this option.

  2. You mean you want to map your domains?

    I have already map the domain i.e. primary1.domain.com to site1.blogs.domain.com.

    Now, when someone opens site1.blogs.domain.com it redirects to primary1.domain.com, but I also want that when someone is logged in, at that time also site1.blogs.domain.com should go to primary1.domain.com

  4. What plugin did you use to map the domain?

    With one of them, there's an option to redirect the admin side as well.

    I have used WordPress MU Domain Mapping, but now I am not able find where is this option.

    Please let me know where is this option in this plugin or suggest some other plugin having this option.

  6. Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_admin_page

    Uncheck options 1 and 4.

    I am not able to uncheck option 4. When I click on option 4 and uncheck it and then save it, next page again shows it as checked.

  8. What version of the plugin are you using?

    Version is: 0.5.4 and it is not showing in List of active plugins but in Must-use.

    Do I need to change it from Must-Use to active?

  10. No, Must Use is fine. But you need to update :)

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

    Version 0.5.4.2 is out.

    That's the problem though, with MU. You don't see when they need updates.

    I have upgraded it to version 0.5.4.2 by installing this plugin and removing it from Must Use.

    When I am in admin panel, and click on My Sites from drop down menu, then again it is showing non mapped domain only and not primary1.domain.com (though when I open primary1.domain.com/wp-admin, it is working fine).

  12. Did you go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_admin_page

    and uncheck options 1 and 4 again?

    *hint hint* The upgrade was so those check boxes would work again ;)

    Yes, I did this only. Though only options 2,3 are checked but links shown are site1.blogs.domain.com

  14. My links in /wp-admin/network/sites.php show the old subdomain, but when I click on them, they are correctly forwarded.

    I have not created *.domain.com as it was causing issues with cpanel.domain.com type sub-domains.

    So, for "My links in /wp-admin/network/sites.php show the old subdomain, but when I click on them, they are correctly forwarded." they are not forwarding, instead shows default hosting pages (i.e. not configured). That is the reason I wanted to have these links as primary links and not sub-domain one (like http://site1.blogs.domain.com).

  16. I have not created *.domain.com as it was causing issues with cpanel.domain.com type sub-domains.

    You MUST have the subdomain for your mapped domain working before you attempt to map them. Period.

    I get what you want to have in the end, but you MUST make sure everything is okay in Multisite before you start mapping.

    I guess I need to create mapped sub-domains (for all network sites) so as to have them working (as *.domain.com is not configured).

    Thanks for the support Ipstenu.. :)
