RE: How Set the Display URL for a WP MU DM provisioned site to 'www.somedomainname.com'?
BACKGROUND: Yesterday, I provisioned an AWS EC2 Bitnami for WordPress Multisite AMI which has WP MU DM v0.5.4.3 pre-configured.
Today, I've added a couple of test sites to WP MU DM...and am stumped.
After 2-3 hours trolling around the web reading docs, blogs and WP MU DM insights...I'm even more confused--and am making this plea on behalf of all equally confused, yet anxious to use, WP MU DM users.
Question 1. In the "Domains" administrative pane, what does the "Primary" option mean? What does it do? What happens if it is checked? Not checked?
Question 2. If the desired Display URL is 'www.thisisadomainname.com', is this string input into New Domain-->Domain? Then is the Primary option selected? (BTW, I tried this, and the Display URL remains http://thisisadomianname.com.)
Question 3. What happens when New Domain-->Domain is set to 'thisisadomainname.com'? Then, what happens if the Primary option is selected? Turned off?
Question 4 (the biggie): If both 'www.somedomain.com' and 'somedomain.com' are desired (with 'www.somedomain.com' being reflected in the Display URL)--does this mean that two entries (one for each) are made in New Domain-->Domain? If so, does one, and only one, of the two get the Primary option turned ON?
FWIW: I've tried all the combinations above and none of them result in http://www.thisisadomainname.com. Seems like, no matter what configuration options I set, the Display URL is always: 'http://thisisadomainname.com'.
Your comments...clarifications...suggestions are invited & welcomed with thanks.
PS: If there is a documentation set somewhere which clearly explains the Primary option as well as how to set the Display URL to 'http://www.something.com' ... a link would be greatly appreciated (and, be assured, I've looked for, and read many, many pages which do not clearly explain all this).
