Multisite, MU Plugins, Redirect (4 posts)

    It's nearly 1 weeks and my blogs cannot run properly because I'm not finished build the structures. I'm using WP 3.4 with: subdomain, multisite, and MU Plugin, in Free Web Hosting.

    My goals is something like this:
    1. domain.com (WP)
    2. sub.domain.com (WP)
    3. another subdomain (but from blogg*r.com) redirect to myblog.domain.com
    4. Turn ON: Multisite & MU Domain plugin (Multisite only for WP's domain)

    And I have a question about:
    1. My registrar said I cannot redirect something like point.3 - Setting must be done at DNS menu in (free)webhosting control panel, or ask my webhosting provider to redirect my subdomain to different hosting.
    Is it true? I not understand somehow after I've install MU Domain plugin, its worked without changing anything at webhosting (but Im sets DNS at my domain registrar). Point-3 done, but what I'm missing? Please tell me if something wrong.

    2. After multisite active, if I try to opening subdomain dashboard, why it's asking me to login again? And, if I login in that way, my subdomain's dashboard dont have menu multisite to back to my network admin again? Even plugin/themes not working if I activated from network admin. (multisite setting only at main domain 'public_html\wp-config.php)

    3. Right now, if I open my site (domain.com), its always displaying http://www.domain.com for 1-2 secs, and after that it back to domain.com.
    How to fix that?

    4. Last things......
    -I have "domain.com/sub1" --> become "sub1.domain.com", and then 2GB capacities is splitted (ex:1.1gb-900mb).
    -In the same ID, I can choose Manage New another Domain. I enter "sub2.domain.com". (And I have full 2GB capacity again)
    Both URL alive right away, and both are need WordPress installation too. I think no different. In fact 'Search Function' cannot accross wih subdomain without Plugin right?
    So why people must always put 'subdomain's folder' in the maindomain's root?

    Please help me answering these 4 Q... Im new on WordPress and will always be :(

  2. 3. another subdomain (but from blogg*r.com) redirect to myblog.domain.com

    You want foobar.blogger.com to redirect to myblog.mydomain.com ?

    Yeah, your host is right. Blogger's in charge of that domain (blogger.com) so they have to agree to redirect :/

    After multisite active, if I try to opening subdomain dashboard, why it's asking me to login again?

    Cookies. It's supposed to do that. BUT I don't think you did it right. It should have been this:

    1) Install mydomain.com
    2) Activate Multisite
    3) Create myblog.mydomain.com

    I think you may have made your subdomain as a seaparate install.

    Thanks for your quick assistance Mika :) Soo glad if someone helpfull..

    1) Install mydomain.com
    2) Activate Multisite
    3) Create myblog.mydomain.com

    What I do is:
    1.Install domain.com
    2.Activate Multisite
    3.Create myblog.mydomain.com at hosting options, and then create myblog.mydomain.com at 'Add New Site at Network Dasboard' (it's different MySQL with maindomain, because I want it to different themes)
    Is that right?

    You want foobar.blogger.com to redirect to myblog.mydomain.com ?

    But I think there's confusing about the redirect, my subdomain's succeed without asking them to redirect. I'm setting CNAME ghs.gogle.cm at my DNS registrar menu. Thats why I'm not sure if I'm doing right. I think this mess related why my URL always appears with 'www' first (MAYBE)

    Or maybe I should give a link, maybe it's better than I'm asking silly question
    maindomain: yuanpaper.co (WP) | subdomain: tv.yuanpaper.co (Bloggr)

  4. (it's different MySQL with maindomain, because I want it to different themes)

    Uh ... Who and the what now?

    What does 'different MySQL' have to do with all this?
