[resolved] 'Map' a subdirectory? (5 posts)

    I have WordPress Network at domain.tld using sub-domains option.
    I've created a sub-site test.domain.tld

    At this point I want this sub-site to be available as otherdomain.tld/blog

    Is this possible? I know about domain mapping, but it'll only allow me to map either otherdomain.tld or blog.otherdomain.tld to my test.domain.tld

    Is there any way (domain mapping, DNS tricks, some rewrites) that will allow me to map otherdomain.tld/blog ?

  2. No, but that's because of how the web works.

    You can map a subdomain or a subfolder, but you can't map TO a subfolder.

    Thanks for explaining.

    However, you're saying

    You can map a subdomain or a subfolder
    . Isn't it what I'm trying to do? I want to map a subfolder (of another domain name though) to the sub-site.

  4. No, but I get why you're confused ;)

    You're trying to do this:

    Map domain.com/FOLDER to sub.domain.com, so what people see is domain.com/folder and NOT sub.domain.com

    You can go the other way, but you can't have people end up at domain.com/folder.
