Redirection

    Hello!

    We have a multisite install, which serves a number of subdomains thus :

    Mainsite.org

    Site1.mainsite.org

    Site2.mainsite.org

    and so on...

    What I'm trying to do, is redirect 'mainsite.org' to redirect to 'site1.mainsite.org' for a few months, whilst an event is taking place.

    Could anyone advise as to the best way of doing this?

    Many (many) thanks in advance....!

    Hi, Were you able to figure out a solution for this? I'm kinda looking for the same thing and I saw references in the wp-config file but I don't know if that's the right way to do it.

    I ended up creating a new template in my theme, and then applied that template to the homepage on my http://www.mainsite.com. In that template I have something like this:

    <?php
    /* Template Name: Page - Main Site Home */
    
    header( 'Location: http://site1.mainsite.com' );
    
    ?>

    NOTE: I didn't use the Redirection plugin (or any plugin) for this, but thought the info might be helpful.
