    i have a network site created (which is not my main site) and i want to point a sub-domain (hosted somewhere else) at this network sub-domain... it's all very confusing, and i don't think the instructions for the plugin address this specific issue. help?

  2. Same process, but use a CNAME instead of an A record.

    hmmm... thanks for the reply. i asked (i think) the same question at Otto's blog, and got a different answer... http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/comment-page-5/#comment-5535

    Not sure what to do! if i use a CNAME, what name do i use??

  4. Try the A record. If you can't get that to work, then use the CNAME. It;s two ways of doing the same thing, the A record is faster, but at some hosts, you can;t ut an IP address in a cname or a subdomain in an A record.

    Looks like i can't do domain mapping because my site is installed in a folder called blog. That sucks. I get this message when trying to activate it. Might help to say this in the plugin directory. Or did i overlook it?

    The domain mapping plugin only works if the site is installed in /. This is a limitation of how virtual servers work and is very difficult to work around.

  6. I think it does.

    Actually, the warning used to not be there, as if you domain mapped, the foldername where you installed it woudl also show up.
